The World Was Made Flesh

John 1:14
And the Word was made 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.

Jesus was always in the world. By His very nature as God He dwelt in the world as the omnipotent God. But here, in a certain time of history, the Word became flesh.

He was always God and he became flesh. He became man, with all of the frailty of the flesh. The pain, the suffering, the longing, the hunger.

He became flesh and experienced what we experience. He dwelt amongst us and gave up the glory of dwelling with glorious angels to be with us. So that His love may shine in this world. So that He may be the perfect lamb, the sacrifice without blemish. The Messiah who redeems us to Himself.

Who do you say that Jesus is?
