Meaning Behind: Light of the World

Light of the World

Light: the natural agent that stimulates sight and makes things visible.

Picture yourself in a dark room. Everywhere you look, there is black. You don’t know what is around you. You can’t take a step without the fear of bumping into something. You are lost, feeling your way around blindly, desperately searching for some small ounce of light. How do you feel in that moment? What is going through your mind? Are you scared like I would be… uneasy and uncertain?

Light is very important. Light is needed if we are to see clearly. Light is the what points us to understanding and certainty. If you can see, you can act. If you can see, you know what to expect.

In John 8:12, Jesus says, “I am the LIGHT OF THE WORLD, whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”

Jesus is the LIGHT OF THE WORLD. He is the agent that stimulates sight and makes things visible. And not just the ordinary things around us, but the supernatural and spiritual truths that are needed in our lives. Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life, and we are to follow Him. It is promised in scripture that if we do that, we will never walk in darkness. We will never have to be afraid because He is shinning the light of life, and true salvation is found in Jesus.

Let us always pursue a life in the light of Jesus Christ. May we search out and find Him in the place where His glory dwells. I hope that this song encourages you to do just that.

LIGHT OF THE WORLD

Let Your kingdom come, Your will be done, I turn to face the rising sun
To find You in the place Your glory dwells
A brand new day, A bright new start, A second chance, A change of heart
To find You in the place Your glory dwells

Light of the world come down
Shine till the path is found
Light of the world come down, come down

I’ll run to You when you call me out, follow You through fear and doubt
To find You in the place Your glory dwells
I’ll trust in You when my faith is weak, die to self and humbly seek
To find You in the place Your glory dwells

Light of the world come down
Shine till the path is found
Light of the world come down, come down
Break through the dark of night
Heaven and earth collide
Light of the world come down, come down

You are the way the truth and the life
Shine on, Shine on

“Alive” New Valley Worship Single

20130318-102235.jpg

Hey everyone!

The songwriting community that I am a part of at Christ’s Church of the Valley (Valley Worship) just released a new Easter single. We have been teaching this song in our weekend services and it is one of my favorite songs to sing right now! The lyrics are so powerful, especially in this Easter season, and the melody is interesting enough to keep you hooked, yet simple enough to sing along. The writers of this song are good friends of mine, Jeff Jansen and Joel Ceballos, and I am so impressed with their writing on this song. “Alive” is the next “Happy Day”! Seriously! If you don’t believe me, take a listen yourself… http://m.youtube.com/watch?feature=g-high-u&v=QW_poTWPPIc

I hope this song and the message it displays helps you to enter into a state of celebration, because our Jesus is no longer dead… he is ALIVE! Here are the lyrics…

ALIVE

The earth it shakes, clouds give way, angels sing and celebrate
He is alive
Oceans roar, mountains bow, love laid down, joy poured out
He is alive

Alive Alive, He’s alive
Risen from the grave
Alive Alive, He’s alive
What a glorious day

Empty cross, ransom paid, curtain torn, an open grave
He is alive
Trumpets sound in victory, people stand in liberty
He is alive

He is the holy one, our God King of Glory
He is the risen one, our God
