Yesterday, March 17, 2013, Pastor Chelsey shared a message from 1 John 1.5-10 entitled “God is Light.” You can listen to that message on Christ Community Church’s sermon webpage. By the way, if you listen to the sermon, you’ll notice that it ends abruptly with a lot of coughing. Here’s the quote not heard:
There are two ways of spreading light– to be the candle, or the mirror that reflects it.
One of the things from that message concerned the freedom- or lightness- in decision making that we have in and from our fellowship with Christ. As we seek “to be in the light as God is in the light,” our choices, actions, and attitudes seek to please our Saviour before anyone else.
B.J. Stockman expounds on this idea in his post, “The Goal of Life is not to be Liked.”
This post is a follow up to a message preached by Rev. Chelsey Harmon at Christ Community Church in Nanaimo, BC. It is meant to challenge followers of Christ in their everyday living.
