Jesus Is The Personalized Word


Read John 1:14

The Manner Of His Incarnation. "The Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us." The manner of His incarnation is a mystery. How could God become a man? The answer lies in the mind of God alone. All we know is that God chose a virgin named Mary and caused her to miraculously conceive and bring forth a baby. On that night when Jesus was born, God had come to earth. Somehow, the Word became flesh! While Jesus Himself had existed from all eternities past, He took up on Himself a robe of flesh there in Bethlehem. The Creator was born to the creature. God placed His life in the hands of mortals. Jesus pitched His tent here among mortals. He lived among us, worked among us, prayed among us, suffered among us and died among us. God walked upon the earth and was unrecognized by many who came into close contact with Him.

The Mystery Of His Incarnation. “The Word became flesh”. There in Bethlehem, God stepped out of eternity and onto the stage of human history. He came as a tangible proof of the existence of God and of God's willingness to save mankind. Jesus came to this world to reveal God to man. He did this through the medium of His flesh.

The Majesty Of His Incarnation. “We have seen His glory”. John saw the glory of Jesus in a very real sense. In Matthew 17, John, along with James and Peter, accompanied Jesus upon a mountain side. There, Jesus allowed the veil of His flesh to be pulled aside and He revealed the glory that was concealed beneath. Jesus concealed His heavenly fame within an earthly frame. However, His greatest glory was revealed the day He allowed Himself to be nailed to a cross and died for sinners. On Calvary, the glory of God was in sharp focus!

Some Thoughts

  • Jesus left the halls of Heaven and came to live among men.
  • He took upon Himself a robe of flesh so that He might be able to die for mankind.
  • The greatest evidence of the glory of God is the broken body of Jesus Christ.

“But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Rom. 5:8).
