Sermons in “Deep Roots”
The Christian faith cannot be shrunk down to a set of moral principles. Jesus said, “I am the truth,” so in him the message and the messenger are one. Creeds are like the score to a Bach cantata: they free us to grow closer to God together.
You hear people saying many different things about Jesus and who he was. As Christians, it’s important to realize that we say the greatest of all: God from God, Light from light, True God from true God, Begotten, not made. If this is not who Jesus is, then God has not come to rescue us himself, as we and our world so desperately need. But if this is who God is, then we have the greatest God and Savior one could possibly imagine.
