Memory Verse Monday – Week 51

And the Word became 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. John 1:14

 

John chapter 1 addresses Jesus Christ as “the Word”. Beginning in v1, John points out that “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” He goes on to say that the Word was part of creation, that in Him was life and that He was the light of men.

 

In v14, John explains the incarnation of Jesus. This Word, this God, became flesh, was born as a man to fulfill God’s grand plan of salvation. We know what this verse means but let’s not forget the reason for the verse. It can be found in the last few words. Full of grace and truth.

 

Jesus was God’s answer to our folly. He is a symbol of grace and forgiveness. He is the mediator between us and God. While we were yet sinners, Christ died for us, so that we would be spared from God’s eternal punishment. Jesus is full of grace and truth.

 

As important and wonderful as it is to remember the birth of Jesus, it’s doubly important to remember the grace and forgiveness of our Lord through Jesus Christ. Have you received His pardon?

I enjoy learning from God’s word, it amazes me, the wisdom and treasures of God and the way He reveals them to me day after day in a profound manner. In this space I share with you what I’ve learnt through my time with the Word. I earnestly believe that learning alone isn’t sufficient but walking in the word is crucial in a believer’s life. As much as I desire to walk in the word, it’s not always easy. My hope is to encourage you, my dear friend, in your walk with God with words that He has used to strengthen my own walk with Him.
