Sunday was our church’s Special Christmas service so we didn’t continue Ephesians this week. Instead the message was about “Who is Jesus Christ and Why did he come?” What better message for a Christmas service then to talk about the person at the center of it. I checked the church’s website today and didn’t see the message linked so I don’t know if it will be put Okay- it IS on the mp3 list or not click that link and scroll down to the date 12/19/10 and message titled “Who is Jesus Christ and Why did he come?”. You can probably download the study sheet there too.
I will just still give you the notes below. It was a simple message stating the facts as given to us in scripture. You can copy this page for yourself if you’d like. Be sure to look up the verses next to the statement.
