Glory of Incarnation

John 1:14   (KJV)   14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

Creation shows God’s existence; Christmas shows God’s existence among us.

The greatest act of humility is when God took upon Himself humanity.

john-1-14-glorious-incarnationThe Word becoming flesh is the best and clearest revelation of God.

The first man walked with God. The fall of man broke that fellowship. On the coming of the Son of God, on Christmas, after thousands of years, God “walked” among men—again.

Jesus is full of grace and truth; a Jesus void of grace and truth is a different Jesus.

Christ is full of grace and truth, that’s why Christians also walk in the fullness of—and continuous growth in—grace and truth.

On Christmas, Jesus lived among us—visibly, temporarily. Now, Jesus lives in us—invisibly, permanently (?). Both are glorious. How much more glorious it is when He comes the final time and lives with us—visibly and permanently.
