The Light Has Come

December 2, 2018 Pastor: Bryan Glisson Series: Let There Be Light

Scripture: John 1:1–1:5, John 1:14–1:14, Matthew 1:18–1:25

Series Introduction: Jesus is the light that has come from Heaven. The light that has reached us is like no other and has come like no other.

Introduction: Why is the virgin birth so important? Does the virgin birth really matter? Why was it so important that Jesus be born of a virgin?  Why did Jesus have to become a man?

The Virgin Birth Conceived  (Matthew 1:18)

  • Not by Joseph
  • By the Holy Spirit

The Virgin Birth Challenged  (Matthew 1:19-20)

  • By Joseph
  • By Science
  • By the Cults
  • By the Church

The Virgin Birth Concluded 

  • Jesus Must Be Man (Matthew 1:21)
  • Jesus Must Be God (John 1:1, John 1:14)

The Virgin Birth Considered 

  • Jesus is the Predicted One (Matthew 1:22-23)
  • Jesus is God in our Presence (John 1:1-5; John 1:14)

The Virgin Birth Constructed 

  • By Obedience (Matthew 1:24-25)
  • By Humility (Luke 1:46-48)
  • By Faith  (Matthew 1:24)

Application: Does the virgin birth really matter? Your salvation depends on it. The Light--Jesus came for your benefit. How will you respond to His coming?

Challenge: Use this Christmas Season to tell your circle of influence that the Light—Jesus has come.
