John 1:1-2, 14-16
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God … And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth. John testified about Him and cried out, saying, “This was He of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me has a higher rank than I, for He existed before me.’” For of His fullness we have all received, and grace upon grace.
The greatest miracle ever to occur was the birth of the infinite and eternal and all-knowing and all-powerful Son of God as a baby in a finite, fallen universe!
“The Word was God…and the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us.” Someone once said, “Imagine planting a garden and then becoming a plant.” It’s shocking to even contemplate making a choice like that; and yet, the distance between us and a plant is far smaller than the distance between us and God.
What would make Him make a choice like that to `plant’ Himself in this soiled world? Only one thing. God is saying to you today, “That is how much I love you!” Let that thought sink into your mind for a few moments. Doesn’t it make you want to love Him back with all your heart?
