God's Purpose for Us All

John 1: 1-12
I heard a wonderful sermon on John 1: 1-12 at Lakeview Baptist Church in Hickory, NC about a year ago. We were visiting there one Sunday because the pastor and his wife had been on a Christian Music Cruise with us and we really enjoyed them. We had also heard from people in Hickory that Ben “gave great sermons, straight from the Bible.”

Here’s what he said about this passage: “Words are the way we communicate. God would communicate through Jesus. Since He had the Word (Jesus) right there with Him before He made anything – we know God’s purpose for us has nothing to do with material things, events or happenings. His purpose is the same for all: to be like Christ, whom He sent to be an example to us, to believe in Christ, who came to save us from our sins and lead us back to rightness with God, and to be children of God.”
