This week’s memory verse from Called and Created’s Bible Reading and Memorization Plan is John 1:14. It says that the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory – the glory of the Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
At Christmas, we celebrate the birth of Jesus – when the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us. He was literally God with us (Matthew 1:23) – God in the flesh! Why did He come? He came to save us! The little baby who lay in a manger would one day grow up to be our Savior, giving His life for us.
Jesus came from the Father, full of grace and truth. He showed those around Him God’s grace, and His heart of love for them. He came to establish the new covenant of God’s grace, under which we receive salvation by faith as a gift of grace, rather than trying to be good enough to earn His acceptance.He forever changed the way we relate to God!
The Word became flesh. He was full of grace and truth. Give thanks to God for sending His Son!
