Advent 1 – a Text Message from God - John 1:1-14
Series: Advent 2019
December 01, 2019
What if our current ability to send each other text messages could help us understand how God could speak to us through the bible ? What does that famous verse mean “In the beginning was the Word and the Word was God ?” Join us as we dig into the gospel of John for the first Sunday of Advent. And as you might guess, it all starts with a conversation about Stromboli...
Is it really reasonable to believe that God speaks to me through the scriptures ? After all, I can’t see God or prove His existence scientifically.
Isn’t it strange that the two things that matter most to us in our lives, MEANING and PERSONALITIES,
are invisible and scientifically unproveable ?
2 He was with God in the beginning.
3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.
4 In him was life, and that life was the light of men.
5 The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it.
10 He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him.
11 He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him.
12 Yet to all who received 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.
14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
