Scripture: John 1:1-18
Message: Understanding the Full Nature of Jesus Christ
Rev. Kelly Vander Woude
The Gospel of John covers a lot of ground, but all of it is centered around the fact that Christ, while fully human, was fully God as well. This is an important message that ALL of the gospels speak about. John, however, considers it so important that he skips over the birth narrative and simply jumps back to the beginning of time – to the understanding that there was, and is, more to Christ than being simply human. The challenge for us today is living into that “important life-changing understanding” and declaring it in all we say and do.
