The purpose of signs

I teach through John every year, and I love the way the word "sign" is used in his writings. Signs are the for the purpose of pointing to something.

This is a good reminder at Christmas to use the signs around us to share the Gospel.

An excerpt from John Piper's advent poem on Nicodemus, Part 1:

"Forbid that we would see the sign
And miss the thing that you design."
