166. Brought Near - We Are In The Light

Download/Play MP3

Christ came to take away sin (John 1:29), and we have been brought near to God by His blood (Eph 2:13), not by our works (Titus 3:5). He has taken us out of darkness and we are in the light! Does that fact change when we sin, or when we waste our lives in prodigal living? This week Mike and Joel continue talking about the parable of the prodigal son, his older brother and his father (Luke 15:11-32), and we discuss which one of the three had the proper perspective about both sons’ standing with the father. Sometimes our thoughts, emotions, actions, behavior, etc, may cause us to feel as if we’re not in the light, but we always need to remember that it’s God’s grace that has brought us into the light and keeps us there! With the proper perspective, we’ll grow more and more into who we truly are as children of the light (Eph 5:8-10).


  1. It's a constant growing experience (growing in grace). We have been wrongly programmed in so many areas of the scripture that it can be a challenge to begin understanding what God is REALLY trying to communicate to us through the Gospel. Thanks for the encouraging words, that is a great help to US!

  2. Well that's it, all caught up from 114, be seeing you, deep in the archives.
