Christmas 9

Excite

Passage John 1:1-14

As we come to the end of our focus on the 9 Christmas lessons we arrive at John Chapter 1, where John tells us that “The Word became flesh and dwelt among us” This week we’ll think about: What does this tell us about Jesus?

  • Who is he?
  • What is he like?
  • What does he want?

Extend

3 readings to mull over during the Christmas period as we think about the word becoming flesh and dwelling among us.

  • Reading 1 – (Colossians 1:15-20) The Word… Who is Jesus? (Holy, God)
  • Reading 2 – (Philippians 2:5-8) Became Flesh… What is he like? (Humble,Emmauel)
  • Reading 3 – (1 John 4:10) Dwelt among us… What does it want? (Real Love)

Use these helps below to guide you as you meditate on these readings.

1. Pause… take 1 minute to slow down, to centre yourself and ask God to speak to you through his word..

2. Read slowly a few times… take time to slowly read the verses, taking in each word and really focusing on whats written.

3. What do you notice?… what stands out, a word? a line? and overall thought? what is it that stands out to you?

4. Pray… Pray about it, take the thing that stands out and give that over to God.
