And now on with the show. After a really great weekend, I have lots of thoughts to share. Hopefully this is an interesting week.
14The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. (NIV)
Do you know how big of a deal this is? The Word, Jesus, the creator of the universe, God’s son, left heaven, and was born, as a baby, as a man, like us! WOW!. Emmanuel, God with us! GOD with US!! Take a look at the message
14The Word became flesh and blood,
and moved into the neighborhood.
We saw the glory with our own eyes,
the one-of-a-kind glory,
like Father, like Son,
Generous inside and out,
true from start to finish. (MSG)
He moved into the neighborhood! Emmanuel, God is with US! That’s a big deal. And its because of that that I can’t stop singing!
- O holy night! The stars are brightly shining,
- It is the night of Our dear Saviour’s birth.
- Long lay the world In sin and error pining,
- ‘Til He appear’d And the soul felt its worth.
- A thrill of hope The weary world rejoices,
- For yonder breaks A new and glorious morn. ( O Holy Night )
And what is really really cool, is this is just the beginning of our delivery. He came full of grace and truth, and later on , the veil is torn, his blood is shed and we are FREE!. But lets not get ahead of ourselves, here we are Christmas time. Let us remember this incredible event – Emmanuel – God is with us!
