Hope: the Confidence of ChristmasDecember 19, 2021
John 1:1-3, 14
- People want and need a sense of hope.
- Christianity is a message of hope.
- As Christmas approaches and the end of the year is in sight, are you living with hope?
Theologian, J.I. Packer said it this way: “The Christmas message is that there is hope for humanity, hope of pardon, hope of peace with God, hope of glory.”
The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
Note that …
The baby of Bethlehem is eternal.
The baby of Bethlehem is divine.
The baby of Bethlehem is among us.
