Bible Reading: John 1.
Insight: “The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us . . . full of grace and truth.” (Joh 1:14)
Insight one: Can a limited human being see or know the Infinite God? This is not possible! But the God who created all things took the initiative to become a flesh in the world He created. As the Word became flesh Jesus was born in Bethlehem. The purpose of Jesus’ birth was to save us from being condemned to death and to raise us from the dead. We know God through Jesus’ salvation and become children of God.
Insight two: How can we, as being saved, live out the Christ of the Word becomes flesh? The Lord Jesus has revealed God’s grace, truth, and glory so that people can see the glorious God. Today our responsibility is to live out the way, the truth, and the Lord of life, so others can see God in our lives. Living out the likeness of Christ is the repetition of the Word became flesh.
Prayer: Thank God for Your coming to the world and becoming a man so we can be children of God. May the Holy Spirit remind me from time to time that I am now granted the grace, not what I deserved, nor my own strength, but Your love that has saved me. Help me, let me not fall asleep in Your grace but actively share Your salvation with others and live in Your goodness. I prayer is the victorious name of Jesus, Amen!
