Sermon for December 24, 2018
Presented by Rev. Dr. Daniel Stegeman
Title: Who Is Jesus?
Text: John 1:1-14
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4 In him was life, and the life was the light of men. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. 6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7 He came as a witness, to bear witness about the light, that all might believe through him. 8 He was not the light, but came to bear witness about the light. 9 The true light, which gives light to everyone, was coming into the world. 10 He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world did not know him. 11 He came to his own, and his own people did not receive him. 12 But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, the gave the right to become children of God, 13 who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God. 14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.

Linus got it right when he recited Luke 2:8-14 for the audience in “A Charlie Brown Christmas” (by Charles Schulz; directed by Bill Melendez), but do you know who Jesus Is?
(Fun fact: As Linus said “Fear not” he dropped his security blanket, representing we can let go of the things of this world and be secure in Jesus.)
