CHRISTMAS 2017!

 

“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.”
We love, especially this time of the year the story of the birth of Jesus in the synoptic Gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke; however for variety cast your mental and heartfelt tents on the John 1 passage briefly for an eternal perspective and for the personal implications, which are:
“But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.”
Even this time of the year, we have a problem of awareness that Christ, the Word made flesh gave us the power to become the SONS OF GOD, the greatest privilege in and out of this world. This time of the year it escapes us that few then almost 2018 years ago knew and believed what was happening as the little babe was born in Bethleham, Israel, more so it alludes us that the majority of the world remains in unbelief.
“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.”
Yet the LIGHT of truth shines on, then and now, enlightening every man that comes into the world whether accepted or not.
“There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. That was the true Light {that is, the Word made Flesh was the True Light}, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.”
Darkness then and now strives to overcome and substitute for this TRUE LIGHT, “THE WORD MADE FLESH”; but it can not.
“All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.”
The Word made flesh, this Lord Jesus Christ, continues to be TRUE and REAL and CONTINUOUS life, that is the true light of all men everywhere!
John 1:1-14King James Version (KJV)
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 The same was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.
8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.
9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.
10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
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.
