#004: Light and Darkness (Part 2 of 2) [PODCAST]

This podcast session features the second part of my second talk in the series, “Being Disciples, Making Disciples”. This talk is entitled “Light and Darkness”.

Jesus helps clarify three important things with Nicodemus. Jesus helps Nicodemus see himself, God, and God’s Love more clearly. He reveals to Nicodemus that God’s intention is to renew the entire world. It is amazing to see the transformation that happens to Nicodemus!
