    Contributed by Bishop Prof. Julius Soyinka on Aug 20, 2015

    based on 1 rating

    John gives us three very important concepts to grab hold of: If we live in the dark, God does not live within us; if we live in the truth, He is within us and we walk perfectly with Him; and lastly, repentance is more than words; it's a life change.

    Many Christians suffer from Spiritual Affective Disorder, because they do not allow their lives to be exposed to the light of God. "Bright light therapy" can bring their lives back on track. How can God's light change our lives?

    [Sermon preached on 4 February 2018, Candlemas / 3rd year, ELCF Lectionary] I have been living in Finland for more than thirty-five years now. And still, every year, I get affected by the winter blues. Days are so short, and the clouds are so thick, that some days it seems to me that the sun does more

  • Provoking Thoughts From First John (1 Of 16)

    Contributed by Dr. Odell Belger on Mar 10, 2022

    1 John is called one of the “General Epistles,” because it was not sent to a specific church. Rather, it was sent to churches in general.

    The three books of John are referred to as “letters, however, the first was not written in the form of a letter. For example, it has no salutation nor conclusion. In fact, it has all the characteristics of a sermon in which a pastor is revealing his love for God’s people. To have a good more
