Lenten Devotions from Lutheran Hour Ministries
"The Light Shines in the Darkness"
Written by Rev. Wayne Palmer
The light of God is shining in a very dark world! That's the message of these Lenten devotions from Rev. Wayne Palmer, theological editor and writer for Lutheran Hour Ministries. In The Light Shines in the Darkness, he has penned a thoughtful meditation on Christ's life and passion presented in the Gospel of John, which illuminates this beloved book with insight and clarity. Written in a fresh but familiar style, The Light Shines in the Darkness is a captivating portrait of Jesus' battle against the darkness of unbelief, prejudice and blind, murderous hatred as He fought for us all the way to the cross and back from the empty tomb.
The universal message of hope in John's Gospel is powerful and written with one purpose in mind: "Now Jesus did many other signs in the presence of His disciples, which are not written in this book; but these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in His Name" (John 20:30-31).
Available to read online beginning February 18th, The Light Shines in the Darkness can also be received as an e-mail subscription throughout the Lenten season. Churches can also download, personalize and print them to give to congregation members or use as an outreach tool. The audio version will begin February 18th 2015.
