Sunday December 20,2020 | Jesus was Born

The birth of Jesus was good news! Jesus was no ordinary baby. He was God’s Son, sent to earth from heaven. Jesus came into the world as a human to bring us life. He brought light into darkness and showed us what God is like.

This Week’s Lesson: Jesus was Born

  • Session Title: Jesus Was Born
  • Bible Passage: John 1
  • Story Point: Jesus came to bring us life.
  • Key Passage: 2 Peter 1:3
  • Big Picture Question: How does the Holy Spirit help Christians? The Holy Spirit comforts us, shows us our sin, and guides us as we live for God’s glory.

John, one of Jesus’ disciples, wrote to tell people about who Jesus is. John wrote that the Word—Jesus—existed in the beginning, before the world even began. The Word has always existed with God, and the Word has always existed as God. He was with God in the beginning. When God spoke at creation, all things were created through His Word. Not one thing was created apart from Him.

The Word brought life into the world and light for all people. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness could not hide it.
God sent a man named John the Baptist to be a witness to the light. John was not the light, but he came to tell people about the light so they might believe. The true light was coming into the world to give light to everyone.

When Jesus came into the world, people did not recognize Him. His own people did not accept Him. But this is good news: to everyone who did accept Him, He gave them the right to be part of God’s family—to be children of God.

The Word became a human and lived among us. People saw His glory—the glory of the one and only Son of God. He was full of grace and truth. John the Baptist told people that even though Jesus came into the world after him, Jesus is greater because He existed before John. People received blessings from Jesus, grace upon grace. Long ago, God gave people the law through Moses, but now He has given us grace and truth through Jesus Christ.

No one has ever seen God, but Jesus—God’s one and only Son—has shown us what God is like.
