Looking to Sunday (and Reflecting On the Incarnation) – December 4th

This coming Sunday, we will begin a brief three-part series on the incarnation. The incarnation, if you’re unfamiliar with the term, is the Christian doctrine that affirms the mystery that God became a man. This doctrine properly belongs to a theological category we refer to as Christology. So why are we doing this brief, heavily theological series? One simple reason is this: it’s Christmas season! This is a season of the year in which our “post-Christian” culture unanimously agrees to celebrate the most marvelous mystery at the heart of the Christian faith. Would you like some proof? Just try to count how many times you hear O Come, All Ye Faithful, or Hark! The Herald Angels Sing on the radio, or at the grocery store. As you casually glance through the refrigerated section of Walmart, looking for eggnog, what do you hear? Yea, Lord, we greet Thee, born this happy morning; Jesus, to Thee be all glory giv’n; Word of the Father, now in flesh appearing. Then, as you get into your car and turn on the radio, sandwiched between Jingle Bell Rock and Santa Baby is a Pop artist singing, Christ, by highest heav’n adored; Christ, the everlasting Lord Late in time behold Him come, Offspring of the Virgin’s Womb. Veiled in flesh the Godhead see; Hail the incarnate Deity, Pleased as man with man to dwell Jesus our Emmanual. In light of all this, it would be a shame for us, as a church, to miss the opportunity to pause and reflect on this glorious truth. And by the way, to the Scrooges out there who protest...

We are very intentional and strategic about the worship at Emmaus. These blog posts will help you blah blah blah.

Emmaus Church exists to see God glorified and churches multiplied by declaring and displaying the gospel. This blog is meant to be a resource to help our people declare and display the gospel to themselves, their families, friends, community and the world.
