Text: John 1:1-9
The purpose of this opening section of John’s gospel is to introduce us to another John, John the Baptist. The name “John” has deep significance. Its root meaning is “God is gracious.” John the Baptist is sent by God with an important message. That message is grounded in a fundamental truth that we often don’t recognize. That truth is that our world is totally dependent on God’s Word (Hebrews 1:3). This Word not only gives us life. It also give us light. This light enlightens every person and overcomes the darkness of our world. John is given the joyful task of witnessing to light in a dark world. We are given this same task.

The Epistle to the Galatians
December 7, 2016
Paul now expands on what he had just written to the Galatians. He calls them foolish because they were turning to the law rather than depending of faith apart from the works of the law (Rom. 3:28). He presents the example of Abraham. Abraham believed in God’s promise and was regarded as righteous more than four hundred years before the giving of the law. The law played a necessary but temporary role in defining the problem of sin. However, with the coming of Christ that role is over.
