Jesus: The Word of grace and truth
1. Jesus came to us.
Jesus is the unveiling of God’s love for us.
Jesus makes life with God possible.
2. John bore witness to who Jesus was.
Jesus is before John the baptizer.
3. Jesus is God’s compassionate expression of grace and truth to us.
Jesus reveals to us who God is.
The late Martin Niemöller was one of Hitler’s prized prisoners. The famous German minister vigorously resisted tyranny. He was imprisoned for seven-and-a-half years at a camp where 238,756 persons were put to death. Yet he carried on a daring ministry at Dachau.
Pastor Niemöller was more than a former prisoner of war. He was a living testimony to truth. To talk with Niemöller was to visit a man who looked death in the face day after day and knew the power of the resurrected Christ. His remarkable life reassures us of the triumph of truth.
