Audio recordings from sermons preached at New Life Christian Church:
When God Became One Of Us (John 1:1-2, 14)
John gives us a summary of the life of Christ beginning with His pre-existence, and then coming to His entrance into the human family for the purpose of bestowing grace and making God known to man.
a. In the beginning
b. Was the Word
c. The word was with God
d. And the Word was God
e. The Word became Flesh
‘The eternal, unchanging, everywhere present, all knowing, all powerful, perfectly pure, absolutely loving God became a man. And that man was of course, Jesus Christ of Nazareth.’
1. THIS IS THE MOST PROFOUND STATEMENT EVER MADE!
2. THESE FOUR WORDS, ‘THE WORD BECAME FLESH’, ARE THE FOUNDATION OF ALL OUR KNOWLEDGE OF GOD, OF MAN, OF THE RELATIONS BETWEEN THEM, THE FOUNDATION OF ALL OUR HOPES, THE GUARANTEE OF ALL OUR PEACE, THE PLEDGE OF ALL OUR BLESSEDNESS.
a. Jesus is the foundation of our knowledge of God
b. Jesus is the foundation of our knowledge of human kind
c. Jesus is the foundation of people’s relationship with God
d. Jesus is the foundation of all of our hopes
