The Greatness God Has Prepared for Us
A Sermon on John 1
November 11, 1979 – First Baptist Church (Conway, AR)
Dr. Henry here told how humanity is in despair over social deterioration and the threat of a nuclear or ecological cataclysm, driving them to see themselves as cosmic dust in a silent universe. While Naturalists and Marxists root meaning for the world in simple matter and in evolutionary or political progress, John reaches into the eternity before matter and shows Christ as the Logos of God. The hope of humanity is in the eternality, personality, and deity of Christ. Jesus has exegeted the Father to humanity, and he actively calls us to himself.
