A classroom of children was busy.  Each child was drawing a picture.  The teacher went from desk to desk admiring each drawing and encouraging each child.  She came to one boy’s desk and studied his artwork.  “What are you drawing, Johnny?”  He answered, “God.”  The teacher chuckled and said, “Why Johnny, no one knows what God looks like.”  Without looking up Johnny said with conviction, “They will when I am finished.”

 

I want to say something daring—I believe that you will know what God is like after you hear this morning’s message.  The reason that I can say that is that the scripture that we are going to read this morning (beginning in John 1:1) presents God in “high-def.”

 

Our prayer is that, having seen Him for who He truly is, you will receive Him—you will prepare Him room.

 

  1. Jesus is revealed

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. . . .  And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth (John 1:1 and 14).

 

  1. In his divinity
  2. In his humanity
  3. Jesus is rejected

He came to his own, and his own people did not receive him (John 1:11).

 

  1. Ownershipis stated
  2. Opportunityis squandered
  3. Jesus is received

But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God (John 1:12).

 

  1. Believein him
  2. Becomelike him
