Christmas Message

A Church needs both simple gospel basics and deeper truth -- and I think that both young Christians and mature Christians need both. Here's an example of a simple message I delivered one Christmas, to mature Christians:
• Christ was God's revelation, and
• Christ was God's salvation. 
I quoted appropriate Advent verses in support, and applied it by saying that we the Church therefore need to be centred in God's revelation, and hold out God's salvation. OBSERVATION: I am thankful for my own salvation to a professor, Herbert Jantzen (see the German Wikipedia -- he is now 95 years of age). He taught us complex theology -- yet regularly changed gear, and spoke to us as if we knew nothing.
