This Week's Sermon ( 1-3-17 )

" But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, 
To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons. 
And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. 
Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ. "   Galatians 4:4-7

" And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. "   John 1:14

" I and my Father are one. "  John 10:30


Christmas is now past, the time of year evangelicals choose to celebrate the birth of Jesus.

Whenever Jesus was born, we must remember what is important is that, according to the Holy Bible, Jesus is literally God in the flesh. 

God literally became a human being, one of His own creation. 

Jesus is not a created person, a created human being.

Jesus is God made flesh who dwelt among us, as John said.

In a sense, God became His own Son.

Amazing.

This is why the Holy Bible refers to Jesus as God's only begotten Son.

We as humans ourselves are not born sons and daughters of God but we become adopted children of God by our faith in Jesus Christ, God's only begotten Son.

God the Father, God the Holy Ghost, and God the Son Jesus, are literally all one in the same God...not 3 Gods.

Jesus clearly said;

" Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again. 
No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father. "   John 10:17-18

The reason Jesus declared this statement is because He is God.

My friend, we either believe Jesus at His word or we do not.

The choice is ours.

I choose to believe what Jesus said.

Keep your faith in Jesus to the end.

Don't change your faith to believe in someone or something else.
