Preparing for Christmas (John 1:6-9), 06.12.21
We live at a time when the Christmas story is one option among many. It has become part of the children’s mythology that appears during the holiday season, being quickly forgotten after the holiday ends. In this sermon Pastor Daniel opens up John 1:6-9 and examines the Christmas story through the eyes of John’s Gospel along with the messenger that God sent to prepare people for the arrival of Jesus, John the Baptist. As Daniel explains, what John reveals to the reader is not a sentimental, seasonal story but a present reality and something truly unique that can transform our lives today.
