Service Sermon Introduction
12th January For about 30 years, Jesus had been a nobody. In the gospel stories it's as if, someone has hit the pause button. There is total and utter silence. In the obscurity of Galilee, he is just another carpenters son. Hidden away and incarnated in the midst of his people. What a secret for Mary and Joseph to keep. Were they dying to share who their son really was? Would anyone have believed them? As time went on, did they ever lose faith in the promises of God, about their son, 'Emmanuel'. "God with us". What I was wondering was much more mundane, was Jesus any good with wood? How good a carpenter was he?
5th January John is a true theologian, and nowhere is that better expressed, than in the opening chapter of his gospel record. His record does not begin in Bethlehem, but at the very beginning of creation itself. Jesus is not expressed as the vulnerable child born in a stable, but described as the Word of God made flesh, source of all light and life. John says, 'The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has never put it out'. Its flame is eternal. Shining through history. Glimpsed in times of darkness. Radiant, in the moments of God's revelation. As a star shone over Bethlehem.
