Welcome to Dexter United Methodist Church!

December 23 – Saturday

Light the 21st candle

Scripture reading:

“Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, ‘I am the light of the world, Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness but will have the light of life.’”  John 8:12 NRSV

Jesus is inviting us to the biggest and most important game of Follow the Leader.  He promises us that if we will follow his light we will have life.  It seems so simple.  I don’t know about you but too many times I find myself in a place where I feel the life has left me and then when I look around I notice that I am in the lead with Jesus behind me.  If you are not following but leading, now is a great time to fall back and regain the full life Jesus intends for you walking in the light.

Activity for Families and kids – material needed: none

Play a few games of follow the leader.  Talk about how we are to follow Jesus and how he will keep us walking in the light and never leave us.
