This four-week series looks at the coming of Christ into the world through the perspective of the first chapter of John’s gospel. This series supplements John’s poetic narrative with the traditional texts of Jesus’s birth to provide a fresh look at the Light of the World invading our darkness to bring us salvation, the best gift of all.
Week 1 Topic: Preexistence, Sovereignty, Redemption, Light vs. Darkness
Big Idea of the Message: Before the creation of the world, the Father’s good plan for rescuing his children was to send Jesus to earth.
Application Point: We can be victorious over our own darkness by receiving Jesus as the Word of God for ourselves.
