“Christ, Light in the Midst of Darkness” Matthew 4:12-17

An Expositional Sermon
Matthew 4:12-17
“Christ, Light in the Midst of Darkness”

Theme/Big Idea: As the light of Jesus Christ breaks upon the darkness of your sin, repent and believe in Him to be found in His kingdom
Aim/Appropriation/Application: Pray that God would expose the darkness of our sin so that we might repent, and that we would grow in our understanding that repentance wasn’t a one time event in our lives when we first trusted in Christ, but that it is the constant posture of the Christian life.

In this text there are three theatres of battle in the war we face against the devil…
(1) Trust God with Time and Circumstances (Matthew 4:12)
(2) God’s Strategy Doesn’t Always Seem Strategic (Matthew 4:13-16)
(3) Obey God’s Call to Repent (Matthew 4:17)
