The Word Became Flesh!
John's gospel tells us what Christmas is really all about! He doesn't tell us about the angels, shepherds, wise men, or the star. John's gospel tells us the Incarnation story of Christmas. The story of the infinite becoming finite, the invisible becoming visible! John tells us, “The Word became flesh." The Word of God did not just look like a human being, nor did He suddenly appear before us; He became one of us and dwelt among us in the flesh. For centuries, theologians have sought to explain the mystery of the Incarnation. Yet, their best efforts take us only so far.
Friends, we will never fully comprehend the Incarnation on this side of the veil. Why would our creator God humble himself and come to earth as a weak, vulnerable baby? In simplistic terms, "the Word became flesh" out of love for us so we might come to know and believe in Jesus, our Savior. "The Word became flesh" and dwelt among us so we could have a vision of God we can better grasp. God, in his immeasurable, unfailing love for us, stepped out of heaven, so we might one day step into heaven for eternity! That is the astounding Good News of the Incarnation. So, don't overthink it; embrace it, give thanks, and rejoice "the Word became flesh" for our redemption!
