Intro – Here is Bill Shade with today’s “Moment from God’s Word”.
Message – Well, Christmas is upon us and we once again will celebrate the birthday of Jesus Christ. But we have been asking the central question of Christmas, and of history itself, Who is Jesus Christ? We have listened as Matthew and Luke (Luke telling Mary’s story) gave their answer. Matthew said He is God with us. The angel told Mary, “That Holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called The Son of God.” Today we want to listen to John’s testimony, but even before we do I want to ask that same haunting question, to you – who do you say Jesus Christ is? Your answer will not effect history – Jesus Christ is who He is – but your answer will effect you destiny. Listen to the testimony of the man who was the closest to Jesus of all his disciples, the Apostle John. He writes, In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
As you celebrate His birthday, contemplate who He is, and His love in coming to this earth to offer himself a ransom for your sin and mine – and worship.
