The Word Became Flesh


Year 8-Day 361: Today, I am grateful The Word became flesh.

It is the miracle that never ceases to amaze me. In fact, the more I contemplate, but more wonderous I realize the miracle of "God, incarnate, come" as the hymn states. 

John 1:1  states: "In the beginning the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God." 

Genesis is the other place where we read, "In the beginning". I love that John reuses that familiar phrase for the Gospel of Christ from his perspective. That God would choose the limitations of human form to understand our weaknesses amazes me more with every passing year. 

For us... and not against us... that we might find a relationship with Him once again. The consequences of sin is death, but The Word became flesh so we might know forgiveness and restoration. To be called the adopted sons and daughters of the living God is a gift that arrived in the form of a baby. 

Helpless and humble was the circumstance of His birth. He came to bring us hope, new life and peace. 

Today, I am grateful The Word became flesh.
