“The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.” — John 1:14
During this time of year most of the Christian world celebrates the birth of Jesus Christ. The truth is, no one knows the exact day and month Jesus was actually born since the Bible never documents this detail. The important thing to focus on is this: that God came down from heaven and took on the form of man, in order to die on the cross for our sins.
The apostle John called Jesus the “Word.”
He was the logos, the embodiment of God’s message to us – a lost and sinful humanity. His message was clear: Unless you repent and turn back to God you will be lost for eternity. “There is only one way back to God the Father”, Jesus said, “and only one truth and one way to forgiveness from sin and eternal life, and following Me is the only way” (John 14:6).
Jesus, Immanuel (God with us), lived among us, taught us by word and deed how God expects us to live. He was full of grace and truth and we beheld His glory. Finally, He was crucified on the cross to purchase the redemption for all of us who would believe upon Him.
Let us never lose focus of the real reason we celebrate this season of the year. It’s all about Jesus Christ, and the greatest gift that God has given us: His only begotten Son, the holy lamb of God that takes away the sins of the world.
Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill among men. We praise You, we bless You, we worship You, we glorify You, we give You thanks for your great glory, Lord Jesus our Savior and King!
