John 1:1-18

______________________________________

THE TRUTH ABOUT CHRISTMAS

The true light that gives light to everyone”

was coming into the world” (v.9).

THE TRAGEDY OF CHRISTMAS

The light shines in the darkness,

and the darkness has not understood it” (v.5).

10 “He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognise him. 11 He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him.”

THE TRIUMPH OF CHRISTMAS

The light shines in the darkness,

and the darkness has not overcome it” (v.5).

12”Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God – 13 children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.”

Where meek souls will receive him, still

the dear Christ enters in.”
