Show Notes
Part 2 of Advent series "Preparing The Way" 1. THE MYSTERY OF THE GOSPEL IS THE INCARNATION. Mystery = that which can be made known by Divine revelation . . . according to [God’s timing] . . . to those who are illumined by the Holy Spirit. 1 2. THE MISSION BEHIND THE MYSTERY IS REDEMPTION. “You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus. He will great and will be called the Son of the Most High . . .” (Luke 1:31-32a) 3. THE MOTIVATION BEHIND THE MISSION IS GOD’S UNTHINKABLE LOVE. 7 Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. 8 Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. 9 This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. 10 This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. 11 Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. 12 No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us. ----------------------------------------------- 1 The Greek word musterion is translated "mystery" (i.e. Phil. 4:12; Col. 1:26).
