Series: Christmas from the Outside Looking In


December 24/25, 2016 Pastor John Welborn Christmas from the Outside Looking In Christmas through the Eyes of Heaven John 1:1-5, 9-18 “O holy night! The stars are brightly shining. It is the night of our dear Saviors birth! Long lay the world in sin and error pining till He appeared and the soul felt its worth. A thrill of hope the weary soul rejoices for yonder breaks a new and glorious morn!” John Sullivan Dwight “There will not be a system of government, there will not be a level of education & there will not be a sharing of wealth that will cure the human ills… regardless of how wise the system of government, how good the level of education or how wealth is distributed: greed, malice, murder and hate still exist.” Matt Chandler “They have all turned aside; together they have become corrupt; there is none who does good, not even one.” Psalm 14:3 “Do not enter into judgment with Your servant. For in Your sight no one living is righteous.” Psalm 143:2 NAS “Who can say, ‘I have made my heart clean, I am pure from my sin’”? Proverbs 20:9 KJV “Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin my mother conceived me.” Psalm 51:5 NAS “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23 I. God sends his Best & Final Word at Christmas “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Work was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not anything made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” John 1:1-5 “The Bible is the written Word of God. The Lord Jesus Christ is the living Word of God.” Jerry Vines II. God Illuminates our Condition at Christmas “The true light, which gives light to everyone, was coming into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world did not know him. He came to his own, and his own people did not receive him. But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.” John 1:9-13 “Therefore the law has become our tutor to lead us to Christ, so that we may be justified by faith.” Galatians 3:24 NAS III. God Manifests His Grace at Christmas “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. (John bore witness about him, and cried out, “This was he of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me ranks before me, because he was before me.’”) For from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace. For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. No one has ever seen God; the only God, who is at the Father's side, he has made him known.” John 1:14-18 “For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.” John 1:17 “To think that your sin is more powerful than the coming of God in the flesh, dying on the cross, absorbing that wrath and granting you His righteousness is ridiculous.” Matt Chandler “…where sin abounded, grace did much more abound.” Romans 5:20b KJV Christmas through the Eyes of Heaven proves that Jesus can take you from the Outside looking in, to sharing the Christmas Story from the inside out!
