Text(s) to Read:

Luke 2:4-20 NIV

John 1:14 NIV

Main Points:

  • This Christmas, you can know God and see his glory by knowing Jesus as God’s Only Son.

  • Jesus was not:

    • Just a man used by God.

    • Just God with the appearance of man.

  • Jesus is:

    • God made flesh.

    • The Only Son of God

    • Emmanuel: God with Us.

      • God coming to be with us as one of us us called the Incarnation.

  • In the Incarnation:

    • God experienced life and death as one of us.

    • God revealed himself to us in a way he’d never done before.

    • God brought light into the darkness.

  • You can either reject Jesus outright, or you can accept his claim wholly. It’s a take it or leave it situation.
