On the first Sunday of Advent, Joe Stout preached on Isaiah 60:1-5 | The Gentiles Promised Light.
“Believe that the light already come. Walk in the light as He is in the light and shun the deeds of the darkness. It was those prior to the 1st century who sat in darkness, not the Church today. We now have the light and can take it to a waiting world who really are sitting in the darkness and living in the land of the shadow of death. Take this gospel to the world and expect the Light to push the darkness out but take no part in their deeds of darkness as you have been set apart to shine as lights.”
