"And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth." John 1:14
When God comes near, to reveal what He is like, we see grace and truth. Jesus Christ. Full of grace and truth. Essential and Inseparable.
Grace and truth are the means by which people encounter and experience Jesus. And they are a two-point checklist for Christ-likeness in His followers. We thrive in grace and truth, and our oneness is a byproduct of our living in grace and truth.
This Sunday will be wrapping up a year of THRIVING at RbC. And it will launch us into a year of ONE CHURCH in 2019: one people encountering, experiencing and embracing our Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ!
Christmas Eve Service
"And [the Magi] asked, ‘Where is the one who has been born king?’” Mt 2:2
Imagine a world before Christmas… how dark, lost, and, quiet must it have been?
But everything changed that night. God became flesh and moved into the neighborhood… His salvation came, truth revealed, glory made known, and hope restored.
Join us this Christmas Eve as we worship "THE ONE BORN KING”. The One and Only- Jesus Christ: God’s presence made tangible, His person made understandable, and His position proved irreplaceable.
"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” John 1:1-5
We were far, AND GOD CAME NEAR.
His presence made tangible, His person made understandable, His position proved irreplaceable, His power declared undeniable… all through Jesus.
