The Word made flesh
“Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign. Behold a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and his name shall be called Emmanuel.” – Isaiah 7:14, DR
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
The same was in the beginning with God.
All things were made by him: and without him was made nothing that was made.
In him was life, and the life was the light of men.
And the light shineth in darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.
That was the true light, which enlighteneth every man that cometh into this world.
He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
But as many as received him, he gave them power to be made the sons of God, to them that believe in his name.
Who are born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we saw his glory, the glory as it were of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” – John 1:1-5, 9-14, DR
He has come.
The Son who, with the Father and the Spirit, created all things has come.
Our Deliverer has become one of us. He has taken on flesh in order to redeem our flesh.
He has become human in order to be the first-born of a restored and remade humanity, one born of faith by the Spirit through the blood of the Son.
The King stepped down from His throne to become a pauper.
The Author of Life has become for us our sacrifice so that we may be re-made.
He is born today and nothing will ever be the same.
