Down To Earth: December 27

This week’s readings are based on the Christmas At Northside sermon. In this season, we want to turn our focus to Jesus. Don’t just read the text, but let it read you throughout the week!

​​When Jesus heard that John had been put in prison, he returned to Galilee. Leaving Nazareth, he went and lived in Capernaum, which was by the lake in the area of Zebulun and Naphtali-- to fulfill what was said through the prophet Isaiah:
 
"Land of Zebulun and land of Naphtali,
    the way to the sea, along the Jordan,
    Galilee of the Gentiles--
 the people living in darkness
    have seen a great light;
on those living in the land of the shadow of death
    a light has dawned."
From that time on Jesus began to preach, "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near."
Matthew 4:12-17 (NIV)

Jesus is Hope! He is the light in our darkness. Looking back over this year, what are five ways Jesus has brought light into your life?
