And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us.
I have always been impressed with the Gospel of John’s opening words. It seems to reach a peak when John speaks of the Word becoming flesh. In other words, Jesus takes on human form for the sake of salvation and redemption.
Incarnated godliness in human form. Total holiness coexisting with total humanity. All in the same place and at the same time is wrapped up in the same oneness.
I marvel at such a majestic maneuver on the Lord’s part. Since He is the Almighty, we know He could have spoke and it would have been done. Since He is the Creator, He could have created a new breed and done away with sinful man just to start over again.
No but He decided to go out of His way for us. He decided to become like us so that we might have eternal life and life out this earthly life like Him. He became flesh. He took on the form of a man.
He became flesh for us and our sakes, our salvation.
Read John 1:1-17.
