And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us . . . John 1:14
Lovely words in a free devotional series by Janet Denison:
The “Word” is Jesus. . . Just as an idea is expressed and made known through words, God is expressed and knowable through Jesus. Jesus had always been with God and he had always been God. Christmas Day is when God made himself visible to the world. And God wanted us to know him as a tiny, newborn infant.
The God of the universe could have presented himself to the world any way he chose. He chose to become a baby, born to a peasant couple in a stable. Jesus is not a “character” of the Christmas story; he authored the Christmas story to reveal his character.
Looking Forward to Christmas, Janet Denison
We hope you will join us to reflect on Jesus as The Word as we prepare for Christmas this year.
