God-Write-the-Bible“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made.  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.” John 1:1, 3, and 14

How does a word become flesh? Just think about how many words we hear, speak, read, write, and type each day! How often do teachers use words in the classroom?  How many words are used by parents to their children? But our words can by no means become something other than words. The same is true for the words in this article. None of them will someday become flesh. It is an impossibility! There is, however, a language that does become flesh.

Each of us has a very special language inside of our bodies. The Lord has designed it so that every cell should adhere to this exceptional code. This giant word is called DNA and is incredibly complex. It is truly the language that allows us to have a body to dwell within. It is because of this word (DNA) that our bodies become flesh. Although every living thing needs DNA, this is not what God’s Word is talking about in John 1:14 when the Lord says through John, “The Word became flesh and dwelt among us.”

This Word is much more that DNA. This Word is the very Word of God, Jesus Christ- the Son of God and God the Son. Just as our bodies desperately depend on DNA, so our spirits are designed to be quickened by The Word of God. Sadly the first Adam chose to listen to Satan, the Father of lies, his wife, and his own heart instead of God’s loving and perfect command. Thankfully Jesus, the Last Adam, became flesh, pointing all who would listen back to the True and Living God.

May this Christmas season serve as a great reminder of just how amazing and truly humble God is; the One who stooped down from Heaven to become a man— The Word become flesh so we might be freed from sin; freed to understand and know the One who is the Word of God!

“[Jesus] made Himself of no reputation, and took upon Him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: and being found in fashion as a man, He humbled Himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.” Philippians 2:7-8  

“And we know that the Son of God is come, and has given us an understanding, that we may know Him that is true, and we are in Him that is true, even in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.” 1 John 5:20
