The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
The bible is God-breathed; he inspired the words on every page. This text is a combination of books and stories and testimonies of the goodness of God. It touches on His nature, His story, history, and His truth.
This time of year rolls around, and it’s important that we remember why we celebrate. We are celebrating the Word-made-flesh. God didn’t only give us direction on paper and pen, or in this era, tablets of stone; He sent His one and only son to come to earth and dwell among us.
So that you and I would know that He was all man and all God; he felt our human emotions, our pain, our joy. He saw far beyond what any of us could comprehend, and he died for you and me, for those that lived among him 2,000 years ago and for those 2,000 years from now.
He came so that we could see the Word, the truth, the way, in person. If you are a visual learner, this was especially for you. His life was a testament to how we should live.
We don’t say, “Jesus make me more like you,” so that our breath runs out. We say, “Jesus make me more like you,” so that we can walk in the way of the Word.
Jesus, we thank you. We thank you that you came to earth, and we have an example of living by. We honor you every day, and although some days it’s harder than others, every day, we choose to be more like you. We extend grace and kindness, and love. We walk in purity, authority, and the confidence given to us by you and our Father. We love you with everything in us! AMEN!
