My wife and I were traveling over the New Year and Remix had the privilege of having a fine young (yes, actually younger than me) preacher by the name of Dana Dill step in and speak on the final scripture in our “The Light Shines” series looking at John 1. I have known Dana since I first started interning at South Shores Church and he was a sophomore in high school. I have watched him be a leader among his peers, continue on to Biola University, be a terrific intern, graduate college, take on full time ministry, get married and now continue his education at Talbot School of Theology. And if I may say so, this man has a tremendous heart for Jesus and for the church and an incredible desire to serve both faithfully (not to mention he is a very gifted communicator). My office is next to his and I am blessed weekly by this great man of God. (Follow his blog here).
A few words about this sermon:
This is a beautiful and theologically rich sermon on John 1:14. Dana helps you to understand the passage in light of the author’s aims in the whole chapter, while also giving you a lot to chew on as you develop a full understanding of what the “incarnation” is. Do yourself a favor and listen intently: beginning with the opening prayer (grace & truth), his humorous illustrations, thought-provoking quotes from historical figures and pastors, plus his own reflections and insight… listen intently and see if it doesn’t make you love Jesus more for coming down and pitching a tent in our backyard.
The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. – John 1:14
