john 1:14 sermon

John states, "The Word became flesh." Yet the Positivist tries to keep his religion after he has denied his God. That the glorious perfections of Deity might be displayed — the glory of God's infinite wisdom, almighty power, unspotted purity, inflexible justice, boundless compassion, inviolable truth. It is not necessary to abate any of our antipathy to her errors, but a church must not be refused a place in Christendom which holds the Incarnation and related doctrines.VI. From the benignant character of His religion.II. O. Mackey.One of the secrets of Victor Hugo's power over the French people was their memory of the following: When the disasters of the Franco-German war were falling thickly, and the iron band was closing round Paris, word came that Victor Hugo was coming to the city. How then do we come to know Hebrew? Till He teaches us we cannot know God's thoughts about us; we might see the words in the Bible, might see the Word made flesh, but yet not be able to understand their true meaning, any more than we could understand a foreign book till some one had taught us the language.(T. How can we, who believe the Godhead has found room enough in it to dwell in all His inexhaustible fulness, think low of it? THE PERSON HERE SPOKEN OF. He was made of a woman, which explains partly those fine feminine traits discoverable in His character. The incarnation took place between these utterances.2. The mind of man had to be prepared. Negatively. O. The stormy ages will be calmed only because a Divine voice has said " Peace be still." The Holy Trinity existed previously, and dim prefigurations of the doctrine are noticeable in the Old Testament. His Divine glory was constantly manifesting itself — when the star led the wise men — when He taught the doctors in the Temple — when He healed the sick and raised the dead. The unsearchable love which showed itself at the beginning brought Him down again from His Father's bosom.2. The one is as necessary to our salvation as the other. Cynddylan Jones, D. D.)The influence of Christ's grace and truth upon artJ. He does not hide the truth, however terrible; but He utters it with infinite compassion. In the Son of God alone could the necessary merit be found.3. THIS ASSUMPTION OF OUR BODY BY CHRIST IS A PLEDGE OF ITS RESURRECTION, and such being the case, how we ought to reverence it!VIII. Each individual believer in this covenant of grace, lives eternally. Indeed, a vast change has imperceptibly stolen over the minds of men, which is seen in the fact that whereas sculpture was the prevailing form of art among the Greeks, painting is the prevailing form among Christians. By the side of this all other fatherhoods are types and figures.3. And from the Spiritual advent all after life takes its date and derives its impulse.3. The concourse and co-operation of each nature to His mediatory works, for in them He acts according to both natures. Linking man to God it removed the antithesis between them. Class Jesus, as some do, with Plato and Shakespeare, and He would receive no more honour than they. His wonderful birth is succeeded by a wonderful life.(W. The intensity of kindness may always be measured by the sacrifices to which it leads. Persevering, however, the pictures gradually began to raise their veils, and permit him to have an occasional peep at their rare beauty: they softly whispered to him a few of their secrets; and as he continued unwavering in his devotion, they at last flung away their reserve, showed themselves with an open face, and revealed to him the wealth of beautiful ideas that was lodged in them. Believers are destined to a heavenly inheritance, to live with Christ, to enter into His joys, to share in His dominion, to be for ever with the Lord. You know it now because the word was made sound, and you caught it. III. The incarnation took place between these utterances.2. And now we can safely address ourselves to the second part of our subject, and inquire what St. John means, when he says that "The Word became flesh." That He might die. And how could it thus become outward, save in a human life; that sweet and lovely and altogether exquisite human life which the Gospel pages mirror to us? And how could it thus become outward, save in a human life; that sweet and lovely and altogether exquisite human life which the Gospel pages mirror to us? There is grace in other men; but they have it as water flowing through a pipe: He as water in its fountain. "Who hath delivered us from the wrath to come. Each individual believer in this covenant of grace, lives eternally. His heart was an overflowing fountain of love, a plenary spring of goodness, which perpetually sent forth streams of grace, to bless a barren and desert world. Take each by itself. He refers all creation to the instrumentality of One whom he calls the "Word;" whom, afterwards, he calls the "Light"; and presently as Incarnate, the "Son." The marriage of God and man eighteen hundred years ago is but the prophecy of a day when the bells of heaven shall ring in the nuptials of a ransomed Church with her royal spouse.(Prof. But the real "beginning," or genesis, is given in the first chapter of the Gospel of St. John. The insignificance of man's dwelling-place involves its own insignificance. But men required something more, something to show them how to live and to make themselves ready for their pure inheritance. (2) How born? All His actions and words are in harmony with the idea that He was the Word made flesh. Till He teaches us we cannot know God's thoughts about us; we might see the words in the Bible, might see the Word made flesh, but yet not be able to understand their true meaning, any more than we could understand a foreign book till some one had taught us the language.(T. Cynddylan Jones, D. D.I. The Incarnation teaches Theism by teaching us more than Theism. Advanced thought a short time since founded the hope of the universal forgiveness on the fatherhood of God. The sorrow of condemnation. Braden. "We beheld." What an inheritance! All is by the Word, expressive: but into the life which is the light of men — that is to say, which in men becomes self-conscious, intelligent, capable of reflecting the Maker's image, He, the Word, can pat more meaning, more expression, than he could into the inorganic creation; and so can render it more significant, more declaratory of the Divine thoughts, mind, and will. Denton, M. A. (3) What flesh afterward? God is in nature; but nature is dumb. A FAVOURED PEOPLE. (2) Most fit "all things were made by Him." That He is —1. On this same Rock of the Incarnation of the Eternal Word, Life, and Light, we can securely build all the other truths of our most holy faith; the Fatherliness of God, the brotherhood of men, and all else that most concerns us to know and believe for our souls' health. Creation is part of His handiwork, as the Revealer of God. It is not for the Christian, who has had so much done for him, and who constantly needs more, to be a selfish man. (1) Some have traced it to the Jewish Targums, where the angel of the Lord of the Old Testament is designated the Word of God. But He was as remarkable for His firmness. Till He teaches us we cannot know God's thoughts about us; we might see the words in the Bible, might see the Word made flesh, but yet not be able to understand their true meaning, any more than we could understand a foreign book till some one had taught us the language.(T. Communion.III. The gracious character of the Saviour will aggravate the punishment of the finally impenitent.3. For who created the desire? It is no longer possible; we are reminded to think of this earth as the centre for whose benefit all else exists. TO APOLOGETICS. It was necessary that the world should know that He was God. And shall He who creates the capacity leave it unsatisfied?III. We all know, I should suppose, how easy it is to drift into a notion about the work of Christ, which amounts really to this: that He came not to do the will of God, but to alter it. All creation is expressive; but one part of Creation is more expressive than another. Aristotle's and Plato's triads, again were simply psychological. (1) Full of grace. Cynddylan Jones, D. D.In classical times the prevailing form of art was sculpture. Cynddylan Jones, D. D.It is often thrown in the face of believers in the Incarnation that we paint human nature in colours too black, that we recklessly and unduly disparage this creature of God. 11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not. THE RELATION OF THE INCARNATION, THEN, TO THE BODY OF CHRISTIAN DOCTRINE is not difficult to be determined.1. TO CHRISTIAN WORK IN RELATION TO THE EVANGELIZATION OF THE WORLD. If we study the great principles which constitute His doctrine we hear the voice of one who spake as never man spake. All creation is expressive; but one part of Creation is more expressive than another. But apart from Christianity nature also opens out another side to the matter. That is to say, the Divine laid hold of the human in such a way as to make the human, so far as it could be made, a true image and reflection of itself. AN INCARNATION OF GOD IS NOT IMPOSSIBLE. (1) Grace and truth are spoken of in the concrete; not full of the news of grace and truth. The B.C. Creation is part of His handiwork, as the Revealer of God. Offer man a Saviour crowned with visible power, or who shall secure wealth or pleasure, who would not acknowledge Him? That round which it turns is the biggest of all miracles, and if you take that all the rest is natural.II. Denton, M. A. The development of the kingdom of God among mankind follows naturally a historical method; and so Genesis comes first, with much afterwards, in the preparatory dispensations, before the birth of the Saviour. But what moved God to unite Himself with a creative form? That attraction we find in the Divine child of Bethlehem, born that He might regenerate the world, and all the courtesies and kindnesses of Christmas between families, households, rich and poor, old and young, are rightly done in His honour who came to unite us to each other in union with Himself. Liberalism does not know how to reconcile these ideas, and by rejecting the Incarnation has rejected the only method of reconciliation.V. Acts 3:22). Nor does it matter that His life was lived on a small planet. How different with Christ! Think what the difference is between saying, "Jesus is only a man seeking God, adding one more to the many guesses as to the nature of God:" and saying, "In Jesus we see God seeking man, and seeking him out of pure love in order to save him": "Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners." We look, then, as we are bidden to look, for the reuniting power between God and man, to the Word made flesh and dwelling among us.I. In the moment of creation He became to man the mysterious basis of that strong mysterious thing which we call life; the indwelling light, through whose guidance and illumination man might know God, and become like God. His PERFECT WISDOM, which spake as never man spake.IV. He is full of grace, but He has not neglected the sterner quality. TO THE IRRELIGIOUS THOUGHT OF THE AGE. He gave His only begotten son; what more could He do?(J. That of two distinct natures and persons by one spirit: mystically.3. The origin of the expression. We could not tell what God's thoughts about us were until He showed us them in a way we could understand. The incarnate life of Christ stands in close relation to the development of Christian character. It is more for Him to be made than to make many worlds.3. It is more for Him to be made than to make many worlds.3. Patton. He who became flesh is the Word, the Revealer of God, at once Power and Wisdom, Light and Life. And He let us know them by sending Jesus Christ into the world. Therefore to furnish an example the Word was made flesh.V. Being past these points of belief, LET US PAUSE TO STIR UP OUR LOVE TO HIM WHO THUS BECAME FLESH FOR US.1. The Incarnation gives to the Bible its unity. THE HUMAN GENTLY MELTING INTO THE DIVINE. Grace, too, as opposed to the rigour, threats, and curses of the law; and truth as set against the shadows and ceremonies of the law. We see our calling. In the previous verses of the chapter St. John has been speaking of the Word, though only in the fourteenth verse does he begin to speak of the Word Incarnate. TO RELIGIOUS COMMUNION. H. Hitchens, D. D.I. Then it is a great pity; certainly it deserves to be true. Much every way. True, we do cherish very humble views of it; but humble views are not low views. There was nothing great about Bethlehem (Micah 5:2). Christ took a complete and perfect soul and body that He might heal the whole nature of that sin which had infected every member and faculty. It took God longer time, perhaps greater pains, to beget Christ in the human mind than to beget Him in the Virgin's womb. "( Augustine. God could not travel faster than the conditions of humanity admitted. And He is the same to day, yesterday, and for ever. The book of Acts is the second volume of the life of Christ, the first being an account of all Jesus "began." The grace is truthful grace; not in fiction, fancy, to be hoped for or dreamed of; but grace, every atom of which is fact, redemption which does redeem, pardon which does blot out sin, renewal which actually regenerates. We can see now what the real ground of all such rejoicing is, and how solid it is. Divine wisdom. That attraction we find in the Divine child of Bethlehem, born that He might regenerate the world, and all the courtesies and kindnesses of Christmas between families, households, rich and poor, old and young, are rightly done in His honour who came to unite us to each other in union with Himself. )Voluntary sympathyH. In order that suffering on behalf of others should indicate kindness it must be voluntary. But in the Word God has spoken. That the gates of paradise might be opened. Prior to the Incarnation a wide gap divided the Creator from His creation, but the Incarnation filled it up, and did away with the antithesis. AN INCARNATION OF GOD IS NOT IMPOSSIBLE. What comfort do we get from the conception of an infinite brain? The singular advancement of Christ's human nature, it being hereby replenished with an unparalleled measure of Divine graces (Psalm 45:8), and so He becomes the object of worship (Acts 7:59).3. THE DOCTRINE OF GOD. In order that suffering on behalf of others should indicate kindness it must be voluntary. This is the only true basis of missionary confidence, and the continuously fulfilling prophecy of the final victory.IX. Yet the properties of our nature are not imparted to the other, nor is it proper to say that the Divine nature suffered, or that the human was omniscient. Just now the deprivatory account is the popular one. General in the case of all believers.3. You demand a proof: I appeal to the story of missionary enterprise. But He was as remarkable for His firmness. (2) And yet distinct from God. He dwelt among us, and we saw His glory. Man longs to appease a justly offended God. The Incarnation, then, was but the beginning of a great career which is still in progress. His personal humiliation from the manger to the cross side by side with the glory of His morals and perfect character.2. Avowed infidels, as well as Christians, feel almost reverent in its hallowed presence.2. "My friend, he already has come down," I replied. And He is the same to day, yesterday, and for ever. He was with God, and was God. Aristotle's and Plato's triads, again were simply psychological. When Christ assumed our nature it was —(1) Not united consubstantially as the Three Persons in the Godhead are united. His spirit did not faint because of the magnitude of the task He undertook. (2) Christ became incarnate to redeem him from —(a)Sin. There are three illustrious unions m Scripture.1. Why the Word, flesh? Where is the roll of the missionaries of Unitarianism? (1) Grace and truth are spoken of in the concrete; not full of the news of grace and truth. The one occurred without man's choice, the other requires his seeking.(D. In Christ there is no defect either way. From the creative Word St. John passes to the indwelling Light, that "true Light, which (as he says) lighteth every man." He was known by this name in the Jewish Church long before His advent.2. )An argument for the IncarnationW. In order that suffering on behalf of others should indicate kindness it must be voluntary. (4) So that each nature retains its own essential properties distinct, and the two understandings, wills, powers, etc., the human and the Divine are not confounded as Eutyches held. Here is the certainty of immortality.II. A. So it has been since the Incarnation. If we begin in the remote past, with Samson and Hercules, we shall not experience any very formidable difficulties in grasping the principle which fashioned their characters. His WONDROUS LOVE, which prompted Him to go about doing good.VI. The word is used particularly —1. THE WORD.1. It is not necessary to abate any of our antipathy to her errors, but a church must not be refused a place in Christendom which holds the Incarnation and related doctrines.VI. But we can only surrender ourselves to its power when we admit that it is the life of the Word made flesh. Two Divine things are more clearly seen in Christ than aught else.1. And yet, in all of it, he announced the cure of grace. Thomas, D. D.(text in conjunction with Ephesians 3:17): — There are two births of Christ — one unto the world, the other into the soul. We become "partakers" of it. Adore the love of the Father and the Son who devised this method for your recovery (Philippians 2:7; John 3:16; Hebrews 2:16). One may say with tolerable accuracy that fine art is the creation of Christianity. The Word, who was in the beginning, and was in the beginning with God, did not make man, as man makes a thing — a piece of furniture, or a house, or what not — turning it out of hand, and so leaving it to shift for itself. It teaches or implies —I. Yet lowly as was our Lord's life in general, there were occasional gleams of it.1. )The glory of Christ beheldC. He must suit His pace to the tottering steps of man. (2) Others to Philo, who spoke much of a semi-divine person called the Word of God. The Light that was only inward; and, being only inward, was dimmed and almost quenched by man's darkness; must needs become outward also, in order that it may shine in all its native purity and strength, and shining thus may reveal God to man, and man to himself. It is a revelation of God.1. He who became flesh is the Word, the Revealer of God, at once Power and Wisdom, Light and Life. O. Mackey.One of the secrets of Victor Hugo's power over the French people was their memory of the following: When the disasters of the Franco-German war were falling thickly, and the iron band was closing round Paris, word came that Victor Hugo was coming to the city. That manhood might be glorified. That He might sympathise with men (Hebrews 2:17). By sight, and by touch, and by voice, says he, I became acquainted with a certain human life; a life, which had a peculiar charm, a special glory about it; and that glory I can only describe as the glory of a well-beloved and only son from a father. The life of God appears on the earth not only harmonized, but perfectly blended with the life of man. Acts 3:22). Were it a mere question of love or power, He could have been sent earlier; but as it was also a question of wisdom, He must not be sent at a period likely to defeat the end in view. Garbett, M. In a palace, cradle of ivory, robes of estate! It testifies to benevolence of disposition, only in as much as it is a free-will offering. Being made flesh He will be a benefactor to it. Written communications must have been subject to manifold hindrances and limitations as an agency of salvation, as was shown when they were actually employed.5. Experience.3. The development of the kingdom of God among mankind follows naturally a historical method; and so Genesis comes first, with much afterwards, in the preparatory dispensations, before the birth of the Saviour. He that built repaired. But by taking the seed of Abraham. From those supplies of grace which are afforded to the believer, from his conversion to his reception into a world of glory. But then we might see and hear A word and yet not understand it. M'Cheyne. These are all true, but short. Take each by itself. He was a man, no doubt; but no man ever looked more like God. After man had fallen He might have refused to repair the injury. The diviner the life, the closer the inspection requisite to understand it. The scribe and the Pharisee, the philosopher and the guide into the paths of pleasure, the bringer forth of things new and the bringer forth of things old, whatever their pretensions, alike failed to satisfy the cravings of human hearts, so manifold and deep, and left them sighing, "Who will show us any good?" As the Son is to the Father, so is the Word to the mind, They proceed both. TO MAN'S PLACE IS THE SCALE OF BEING: correcting the depreciation of man by science and the exaggerated dignity conferred upon him by Pantheism. The world might have perished, its inhabitants might have been lost, and His glory would have been without a stain, His felicity unimpaired. That round which it turns is the biggest of all miracles, and if you take that all the rest is natural. TO THE DOCTRINE OF GRACE. Brown, M. It is equally clear that a man who denies all cannot be invited to the Lord's table. Howat. The greatest glory of the Tabernacle was the most holy place. J. Vaughan, M. He was with God, and was God. In the Son of God alone could the necessary merit be found.3. Witness stoicism. The human nature is a glass, through which we may see the love and wisdom and glory of God clearly represented to us. LET US BEHOLD THIS TABERNACLING OF GOD WITH US. "Sin shall have no more dominion, etc."(b)Satan. Garbett, M. According to the orthodox view a continuous path stretches from the smallest particle of matter at the very bottom of creation right up and away to the sublimest heights of the Absolute and Unconditioned — all things gathered together in one in Christ, What a grand unity! We see our calling. The acceptance of this doctrine draws towards Christ; its rejection separates from Him by an impassable gulf? "(c)The world. And Christians may find their faith strengthened by finding the conclusions reached by the Bible arrived at by other roads.I. If we were so much beholden for the Word spoken, how much more for the performance; if for the Word that came to flesh, how, then, for the Word become flesh.2. But infidelity must go back to Christ or forward to despair. He knows the Hebrew word, and he tells us in English what it means, and so we come to learn. The one occurred without man's choice, the other requires his seeking.(D. Spurgeon. At the manger of Bethlehem we may dare to look forward to that union of human love, of human hearts, of which the noblest of our race have ever dreamed, a brotherhood sometimes recommended as abstract argument, sometimes dictated by revolutionary terrorism, but which, to be genuine, must be a perfectly free movement of human hearts and wills drawn towards each other by supreme attraction.
