Title:  The Word Became Flesh

 

Text: John 1:10-18

Readers’ Note: I haven’t mentioned this before here, but as of October 22, I’ve been the preaching minister at Morrison Christian Church in

Morrison, Illinois. Since I began I’ve intended to start posting sermon notes online and this week I finally got started. You should know that last week I talked about John 1:1-4 and discussed the fact that John brings us a different view of the “Christmas Story”, a heavenly view, as he shows us what it looked like from God’s vantage point. This week, we pick up in verse 10, and in the coming weeks will look at scenes from both Matthew’s account and Luke’s.

 

He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.

John 1:10-13
