FOCUSING ON THE SON

The month of December is one of the few times of the calendar year that more people think about Jesus. The other time is “Resurrection Day” (in other words “Easter”). Jesus being the son of God is also an important biblical theme as demonstrated in the following texts of Scripture:

Matthew 17:5 While he was still speaking, a bright cloud overshadowed them, and behold, a voice out of the cloud said, “This is My beloved Son, with whom I am well-pleased; listen to Him!”

Matthew 24:44  For this reason you also must be ready; for the Son of Man is coming at an hour when you do not think He will.

Luke 2:10-11 But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people; 11 for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.

John 19:14 Now it was the day of preparation for the Passover; it was about the sixth hour. And he said to the Jews, “Behold, your King!”

Hebrews 12:2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God

1 John 1:7 but if we walk in the Light as He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin

Because of these things, I am going to do a short series which focuses on Jesus for the next few weeks. We normally include Jesus in all of our teaching, but these sermons will focus on Jesus being “son.”
