1 Thessalonians 4; John 1; Daniel 7; Psalm 8; 2 Kings 9; Genesis 11
John 1:14, “The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.” NIV
No matter how many times I read these words in John 1:14, I am struck with a sense of awe. The love that Jesus showed for you and me is an incomprehensible love. For God to take on human form, and live with us is so incredible that I can hardly wrap my mind around the concept. To know that our God would come to earth on our behalf to save us, words simply don’t do that justice.
Jesus brought us grace. Jesus wasn’t a finger-wagging God, set on pronouncing judgment. No, he brought us grace. He told us that what we weren’t capable of doing, he was about to do on our behalf.
I can’t hear that message enough! How about you!
