The Word Was Made Flesh and Dwelt Among Us

John 1:14-18

The Word was made flesh and dwelt among us.

The Lord Jesus took human flesh with all its limitations and weaknesses, except that He was and is sinless.

He knew hunger, thirst, weariness and pain. He is a Man of sorrows. He is acquainted with grief.

The truth of the incarnation is essential to the Christian faith.

But the Lord Jesus did not cease to be God when He took human flesh.

The Lord Jesus is both God and man!

No one has ever seen God, but the only begotten Son has revealed God to us.

John the Baptist was a great prophet born before Jesus.

But he testified that Jesus existed before him.

The Lord Jesus, the eternal Word has always existed!

The apostle John saw the glory of Jesus which was the glory of the only begotten Son of God.

Jesus is full of grace and truth.

Through Him come all the blessings of God's grace.

The law was given through Moses. But grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.

That grace is truly amazing!

The Lord Jesus came into an ungrateful world which did not receive Him.

He showed His love to the same world when He died on the cross.

The Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and that flesh was torn apart to save us poor sinners!

All these truths should cause every Christian to praise and to adore our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
