Podcast #476: “What Are We Waiting For” by for KING + COUNTRY

Play episode

I’m Michelle Nezat and I hope to inspire you to discover and meditate on God’s Word through the songs you’re listening to on the radio.

Something is keeping us from being a light in our world. A question asked in for KING+COUNTRY’s song “What Are We Waiting For?” inspired me to explore what the Bible says about light and our identity as Christ followers to be light.

Join me on a journey through the Old and New Testaments to glimpse what we’re up against as children of light and how to overcome the darkness. What are you waiting for?

In this episode, I discuss the following:

  • Taking a B.I.T.E. out of Scripture – this week’s Bible Interaction Tool Exercises include:

  • Looking at “light” from a biblical worldview
  • God made a distinction between light and darkness in creation – Genesis 1:2-5
  • God made a spiritual distinction between light and darkness – Isaiah 60:1-3
  • Jesus is the light that shines in the darkness – John 1:4-5, John 1:12
  • The darkness doesn’t want to be overcome – John 3:19-20
  • Before Christ, not only did we love darkness, we WERE darkness – Ephesians 5:8-9
  • We have an enemy that stands against the light – 2 Corinthians 4:4-6
  • In Christ, we are delivered from the domain of darkness – Colossians 1:13
  • How should we respond?
    • Shine – Luke 8:16
    • Walk as children of light – Ephesians 5:8-9
    • Confess our sin – 1 John 1:5-10
  • Other episodes that study 1 John

Our transformation cannot happen apart from Christ. You cannot will yourself to become light without the life and light of Christ.

This Week’s Challenge

Spend some time studying the topic of light in the whole of Scripture. Feel free to use the verses listed in the show notes as a starting point, but I encourage you to find even more. The Bible has a lot to say about light and darkness. Consider what Scripture has to say about Jesus being light. Note what Scripture has to say about followers of Christ as it relates to being light and walking in the light.
