Speaker: Lukus Counterman - The Word of God incarnate is the light of the world. He is the true light who shines on all mankind and the question is, how will people respond. Irreligious may refuse to recognize him because he interferes with their rebellion. Religious people on the other hand may reject him because he meddles with their system of self-righteousness. But to those who receive him in faith, he gives the right to be called children of God. May the Lord put a stop to rejection and failure of recognition this morning, and may all who hear the Word receive him in faith.
