The single most magnificent mystery of the Christian life is the reality that the Eternal Word of God entered into and became a part of God’s creation. What would drive God to this? A loving longing to pursue the enemies of God, and make them friends.


Main Text: John 15:15; John 1:6-18

Simple outline:

  • Jesus doesn’t need more workers. Instead, He desires intimacy and friendship with each of us.

  • Jesus makes friends even of His enemies.

  • Jesus is the deep truth about who God is—so seeing that Jesus wants to make us His friends and family means God does too.
