TEXT: LUKE 12:35-40
Vicar Christopher Stout

"But know this that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief was coming, he would not have left his house to be broken into.  You also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.” 

If you’ve ever had your house broken into – if you’ve ever been a victim of a robbery – then you know that a thief deprives you of more than things.  A broken window – a smashed lock – someone has violated your space.  A thief deprives of more than things – a thief deprives you of security.  A thief is one of the many things in life that reminds us of the lack of control that we have.  As we gather together as Christ’s Church this New Year’s Eve and reflect upon this past year’s events, we can be reminded of how little control that we have.  Yet, as we gather together as Christ’s Church this New Year’s Eve, Jesus reminds us that in Him, we have peace and assurance in insecure times.

TEXT: JOHN 1:1, 14
GOD’S HAS BARED HIS HOLY ARM IN THE WORD MADE FLESH!
Rev. Kenneth W. Wieting


In many and various ways God spoke to His people of old by the prophets, but now in these last days He has spoken to us by His Son…through whom also He created the world.  Dear hearers of the Word made Flesh:


The Holy Spirit did not inspire St. John, to record the specific events surrounding the birth of Jesus.  In reading the Gospel according to St. John one does not hear of Joseph and the Virgin Mary or of the manger and swaddling clothes.  John begins before that night, even before the conception of Jesus, even before the conception of John the Baptist, even before there was a town named Bethlehem, even before there was the vocation of shepherds, even before there were sheep, even before there was a starry sky over Bethlehem or any stars anywhere, even before there were angels.  John gets immediately to the heart of the identity of the baby who lay in the manger at Bethlehem by taking us back before the creation of the world.
