Is it possible to be a Christian who walks in darkness? There are many who have grown up in the church (and some who even attend regularly!) whose lives do not reflect the light of God throughout the week. 1 John 1:5 is one of the most important verses in the entire book, “God is light, in him there is no darkness at all.” John continues by making it clear that Christians who walk in darkness and refuse to confess (and repent) of their sin are not Christians at all. If God is light but we walk in darkness then we have no fellowship with God and no fellowship with each other. Instead, when we walk in darkness but claim to have fellowship with God then “we lie and do not practice the truth” (v.6).

Elwell, Tyndale’s Dictionary of the Bible states that fellowshipis Communion with God which results in common participation with other believers in the Spirit of God.

The Apostle John states,"That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked at and our hands have touched—this we proclaim concerning the Word of life….We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ.4We write this to make our joy complete." 1 John 1:1 –4 (NIV84)

Matthew 28:18-20 is often called “The Great Commission” because it contains Jesus’ final command to his disciples. It’s a popular passage regarding global missions (for good reason!), but its importance extends beyond global missions and straight to the heart of the Church’s identity and mission. This Sunday, we will break it down as simple as one, two, three.

If you were to imagine the greatest way to put the gospel on display to the world, what would be your strategy? This is the question Ephesians 5:18-6:9 addresses, because God chose to put the gospel on display through gospel-centered churches and families. Ephesians 5:21 instructs believers to “submit to one another out of reference for Christ” and then addresses three pairs of relationships where loving-leadership and humble-submission are embodiments of the gospel.

What would you say to everyone on your last Sermon Sunday? If you had one more message to give to your family? Your loved ones? What would it be? The last word Jesus gave to His disciples before he left the planet were in paraphrase: ‘Don’t worry about time charts and dates… God’s got that. Just remember that power is yours when my Spirit will come upon you and you will be my witnesses all over the world!’  Do you think they believed Him? Not immediately. Jesus also told his disciples that He would be with them ‘even to the very end of the age.’
