Preparing for a Savior {John 8:12}

Verse: Jesus spoke to the people once more and said, "I am the light of the world.  If you follow me, you won't have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life." John 8:12

Suggested Readings: John 1:6-9; 15-16, 19-23

Main Idea: The second week of Advent focused on Preparation.  Christmas is coming!  In many houses (maybe yours), there could be signs that the "most wonderful time of the year" is on the way; Christmas lights, a Christmas tree, the smell of cookies baking and Christmas music playing. Just like we prepare for Christmas, before Jesus came, his cousin, John the Baptist told the people that "the Light of the world" was coming.  This week's verse reminds us that Jesus came to be a light in the darkness.

2} What is your favorite part of Christmastime?  How often do you think about Jesus' birthday while you prepare for Christmas?
3} Jesus said that he is "the light of the world".  Why is light helpful to us?  In what ways could we say the Jesus is the same as light?  How is He different?
4} In what ways do we "walk in darkness" in our lives?  Do you think He literally meant walking around in the dark?
5} Jesus said He will give us "the light that leads to life" if we follow Him.  What do you think He means? What is the life Jesus is talking about?
6} Is there any decoration that we use for Christmas that could be a reminder of what we are truly "preparing" for?
