John 1 from Around the World!
As we head into the Christmas season with many churches still meeting online, we want to bring the Gafcon family together again to celebrate the Word made flesh. We hope and pray that you know the unity of the Spirit as you watch members of Gafcon reading John chapter 1, just as at Pentecost when our video of the Nicene Creed read by Gafcon was so well received and used far and wide in churches around the world.
During the current season of Advent, we have been thinking and praying for our brothers and sisters who are suffering for their faith. John 1 shows that Jesus is our example in suffering:
He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. v11
Our faith and our suffering are not in vain, because:
Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God. v12-13
Our hope is secure.
We continue to wait for His second coming and we rejoice in the promise of salvation that His first coming brought.
We hope you can use this video in your church live-streams and broadcasts this Christmas as we join with fellow believers around the world to proclaim Christ faithfully to a world in desperate need of His grace and truth.
