The move from Christmas season to Epiphany season should not be a let down. Christmas is a season of great joy, but Epiphany is as well. And so that's my exhortation to you: Keep the party going. Keep the celebration going. The themes change, but the festivity remains.

This is a follow up to my January 1, 2023 sermon. My opening comments on the passage are not on the audio here (thought you can get them on the YouTube stream of the service here ), so I will reproduce those comments here, along with a few other notes.

Christmas celebrates the incarnation of God’s Son. John describes it as the Word made flesh. Isaiah used the language of “Immanuel,” meaning “God with us.” In the incarnation, God becomes man without ceasing to be God. Jesus Christ, from the point of conception by the Holy Spirit in the womb of the Virgin Mary, is fully God and fully man, two natures in one person. The natures are not mixed and cannot be separated.
