Everything that God made, He made good and brought light into darkness. For the bite of an apple, mankind sold good for evil and light for darkness. In great mercy and love, God promised to deliver us from the evil one, sin and death and bring us out of darkness and into his marvellous light. In this sermon Dion begins our Christmas series, as we remember with incredulity that at Christmas, God becomes one of us – fully human, yet remains Himself – fully divine, and how this begins the series of events that fulfil Isaiah's prophecy.
