|Good morning everyone,|
Our theme for this month: “Knowing God”
Our Bible verse for today: “They will tell of the glory of your kingdom and speak of your might, so that all men may know of your mighty acts and the glorious splendor of your kingdom.” Psalm 145:11-12 (NIV)
Our thought for today: “Tell of His greatness”
Here are a couple more quotes from A.W. Tozer’s book, “The Knowledge of the Holy”, “The decline of the knowledge of the holy has brought on our troubles. A rediscovery of the majesty of God will go a long way toward curing them.” And, “If we would bring back spiritual power to our lives, we must begin to think of God more nearly as He is.”
Early in this devotional series I noted that one of the reasons Jesus came to earth was to show us what God is really like. Jesus was God in a human body. He was God showing Himself to us in a way we can easily relate to and understand. The reason God did that (in addition to the obvious and primary reason of one day dying on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins), was so we would have a visual image of Him and He could then show us more clearly what He is like. So, if you want to know God you have to study Jesus because Jesus is God in a human body. That’s what the incarnation of Christ means and it’s what we celebrate at Christmas.
This Sunday at our church (Oak Hill Baptist), the Christmas sermon will be focused on the theology underlying the incarnation. We will consider how those theological truths played themselves out over the course of Jesus’ life, and then down through the course of human history and on into eternity. It’s the theology of Christmas.
Considering the Christmas story from a theological perspective, and following the story through to its ultimate conclusion, will help us to better understand exactly what God did for us by the incarnation of Christ. It will also help us to see the bigger picture and thereby gain a fuller sense of the awe and majesty of God.
I hope you will join us at Oak Hill Baptist for this special Christmas service. Sunday school is at 9:00 and the worship service will begin at 10:00. After the service there will be a Christmas party for all ages complete with food, fun, and fellowship. We would love to have you join us. If you can’t be with us in-person, then please join us online. The service will be live-streamed on our Facebook page. Through the theology of the Christmas story, we will tell of the greatness and the awesome majesty of our God.
