Christmas! God’s Will/My Will: Draw Near – Incarnation

Christmas! God’s Will/My Will: Draw Near – Incarnation

Luke 2:1-17

Everyone come and see what God has done – the Light of the World, given for us!  Christmas Eve worship gathering will be at 4:00pm, December 24th.  Invite your family, your friends, your neighbors, come!  

From David Benner: Knowing Jesus, “If the invisible God had never become visible, our knowing of God would remain very limited.  But Divine self-revelation was made complete in Jesus.  To know Jesus, therefore, is to know God.  Jesus is “the image of the invisible God.” (Colossians 1:15) Thus he is the filter through which we need to pass all our ideas about God as we seek to move from knowing about God to meeting God personally in Jesus.”   

From Trygve Johnson: “This is the in between time, a breath between days; the rupture of epochs: marking a border between the inauguration and the consummation of all things.  Here, Word whispers softly, disturbing our sleep, so that we might awaken in the embrace of the Son, whose life is the light that illuminates the world.”

Come, let us adore Him!

See you Saturday,

Hard to believe it’s Christmas week 2022 followed by New Year 2023.  God’s blessing to you in both the ending of one year and the beginning of a New Year.
