The Word became flesh ~

I am certain of this...that every day God reveals to us so many things we could never have time to write about it all. It is just too much. Each year I try to set a goal of reading through the Scripture of God; it usually takes me three years.

In the first chapter of John the author, inspired by God, tells us that:
Joh 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Joh 1:2 He was in the beginning with God.
Joh 1:3 All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made.
Joh 1:4 In him was life, and the life was the light of men.
Joh 1:5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
Each of theses verses has been disected and studies many times. Chapters in commentaries have been dedicated to just these five verses. My professor, Dr. Neil Nelson is a greek teacher. This passage is the first he has his students read in the Greek language. The "Word" is pertaining to Jesus Christ. Jesus is the Word. You say, "So what? What's the big deal?" Here is my point. To think the our Creator became flesh, later on in the chapter (v.14), to save us from eternal separation from very hard to understand and accept. I cannot fathom that kind of love. Can you? When I spend time meditating on this I am in tears. God's grace and mercy is born from his holiness. God is, "Holy, holy, holy!" In the book of Revelation is says:
Rev 4:8 And the four living creatures, each of them with six wings, are full of eyes all around and within, and day and night they never cease to say, "Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come."
There are angels in heaven that are created just to respond on His holiness. Why would God give us His only Son to save us? He loves us. He loves you. Meditate on these five verses and you cannot help but respond in thankfulness. Remember that the "light of men"(v.4) is Christ. The only light in you is Christ. Continue to walk in His good fellowship and feel His good pleasure flow through you today. God bless you ~
