Today’s Text: John 1:14
Today’s Key Thought: God has revealed himself to us in the person of Jesus Christ.
Imagine being in a perfect place. There is no pain, hurt, difficulty, or any other effects of sin. Then imagine having to leave that place to come to a place that is full of all of those things. This is exactly what Jesus did when he came to earth. He “became flesh”. This eternally existent Creator became like His Creation. Not only did He become human, but he lived among us. John even states that not only did they see His full humanity, but they also saw HIS divinity (“and we beheld his glory, theglory as of the only begotten of the Father”).
Jesus came and showed us who He was. He revealed God to us. If we are going to be like Him, then we ought to help people get to see God’s impact in our lives in our actions and words.
