Reflecting on the Most Recent Sermon
Sermon Series: Behold Sermon Title: Behold, God Has Come to Earth
Delivered On: December 24, 2017
The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven. ([bible]Hebrews 1:3[/bible])
Thank Jesus for leaving the glory of heaven to enter human history for the purpose of saving you and bringing you into a loving relationship with your heavenly Father. Ask the Holy Spirit to help you grow in your understanding of the divine nature of your Savior. Lift up prayers of praise for the glory, power, and grace of Jesus.
