“And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.” – John 1:14
Every year, in just two days we remember and celebrate the great and marvelous reality of this verse. We remember that Jesus Christ, the High King of heaven, was made low for us. He descended from His throne to come to this earth and take on human flesh. God in the flesh is something that we cannot fully comprehend, yet it is true, for through this work, He has became the Saviour of all those who believe. While Jesus walked this earth for 33 years, in the flesh, He dwelt with men. He interacted with them, spoke with them, ate meals with them, walked with them, talked with them, and lived with them. He was a man in every single way, yet without sin. He was a complete yet perfect human.
Yet even in His humanness He was glorious, because He was also completely God. His glory was veiled, but He was still glorious! He displayed the works of God by healing the sick with a word, cleansing the leper, giving the blind their sight, causing the lame to walk, and even raising the dead to life! Our majestic Saviour is the one who came for you and I. He was born an infant, fully God, and fully man, a precious little baby who came to this earth with one goal in mind: to die. Don’t let the din, noise, selfishness, and business allow you to forget the precious Christ-child this Christmas season. Remember above all that He came for you, so that all could be made well, and you could have everlasting life! This is the wonder of the Word made flesh! This is the glory of Christ, at Christmas.
