The Christmas Light

December 19, 2021   /   Hadley Baker   /   City On A Hill Community Church

Focus for Today: because Jesus—the light of the world—came to the earth, we do not have to live in darkness.

 


 

The birth of Jesus was predicted 700 years before it happened – Isaiah 7:14

Verses on Jesus becoming human – John 1:14, John 1:1-3

 


 

INCARNATION – the Son of God assumed a human nature and became a man in the form of Jesus Christ

 


 

“It is here, in the thing that happened at the first Christmas, that the most profound unfathomable depths of the Christian revelation lie. God became man; The Almighty appeared on earth as a helpless human baby, needing to be fed and changed and taught to talk like any other child. The more you think about it, the more staggering it gets. Nothing in fiction is so fantastic as this truth of the incarnation.” J.I. Packer

 


 

The Bible repeatedly talks about light and darkness as two realms, two kingdoms, two systems of belief: John 1:9. John 8:12

 


 

The life Jesus offers is a life of:

[01] – Acts 26:18

[02] – Luke 1:78-79

[03] – John 11:9-10

[04] – 1  Peter 2:9

 


 

Jesus’ kingdom of light is – John 1:5, Matthew 16:18

 


 

Jesus’ kingdom will never be

 


 

Jesus’ kingdom of light must be John 1:10-11, John 3:19

 

“The same sun that melts the snow hardens the clay.” – Puritan Proverb

John 1:12-13

 


 

“God became a part of the human family so that we could become a part of his heavenly family.” – James Merritt
