Scripture Lesson:John 1:6-8, 19-28
Preacher: Pastor John Bare
Description: Reading: John 1:6-8, 19-28 John was God’s spokesperson called to prepare the people for the Savior who comes in grace and in judgment. Especially those who came to question him should have known that. For everything that he said and did was in complete agreement with the Word of God. But they were not satisfied with John or with his message. In complete humility he pointed to the light that was about to shine when Christ would begin his public ministry. But they didn’t ask John about that light. They just asked him about himself, and with each answer he gave they showed their dissatisfaction. A lot of people still just want the twinkling of Christmas tree lights and the glitter of tinsel. They do not want the Light of the world who will dispel the darkness of unbelief with the light of the gospel. They may want something at Christmas that looks a little religious. But they do not want to confess with John that they are all darkness and foolishness, all sin and perversity, until the Light comes to expel the darkness of unbelief and save by his works and not our own. What do you want for Christmas? Speaker: John Bare Prayer/Day: Hear our prayers, Lord Jesus Christ, and come with the good news of your mighty deliverance. Drive the darkness from our hearts and fill us with your light; for you live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
