The Word became flesh

I think that the posts this past week have had an impact on people… From the amount of visits I have had, especially the one from A.W. Pink, you can find that Here. My thoughts on Christmas are  Here. So is it wrong to celebrate the birth of Christ on every 25th of December… Well no! I’m with Spurgeon of this one, that it should be celebrated all year around on any given day.

Spurgeon writes:

“We venture to assert, that if there be any day in the year, of which we may be pretty sure that it was not the day on which the Savior was born, it is the twenty-fifth of December. Nevertheless, since, the current on men’s thoughts is led this way just now, and I see no evil in the current itself, I shall neither justify nor condemn, by endeavoring to lead your thoughts in the same direction. Since it is lawful, and even laudable, to meditate upon the incarnation of the Lord upon any day of the year, it cannot be in the power of other men’s superstitions to render such a meditation improper for today.” (from sermon on Luke 2:10-12.)

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. John 1:1 And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:14 By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God; 1 John 4:2 He is clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. Revelation 19:13 He who testifies to these things says, “Yes, I am coming quickly.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus. Revelation 22:20

Soli Deo Gloria
