“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning.” John 1:1 (NIV)
“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 (NIV)
Jesus Christ was God in human form…vulnerable, fragile, able to feel pain and human emotion, yet, was fully God…God…who was and is and is to come.
God humbled himself and came in such a way in order to touch humanity with his holiness…a love gift to us…a way of salvation and redemption.
What does it mean to you that The Word, God himself, in the form of a little baby came to earth to dwell with us?
As you prepare for Christmas this week: decorating, shopping, planning and wrapping; don’t forget to prepare your heart, as well. Think about the fact that God became man for you and for me. Take time to ponder the true meaning of Christmas and the reality and power of God’s amazing Christmas gift to us!
