I have thinking for several years about writing a series entitled The Word Made Flesh. The phrase comes from the Book of John, chapter 1, verse 14:
“The Word became Flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.”
This passage speaks of the eternal Father who sent His Son Jesus Christ in the form of a human being, implanted him into the womb of a young virgin named Mary, and allowed Jesus to walk among other men and women, performing miracles, teaching and preaching about the Kingdom of God. He gave up his life willingly to his enemies who nailed him to a cross where he suffered a criminal’s death. Because He lived a perfect life, pleasing only His Father during his sojourn on Earth, Jesus alone as God/Man could satisfy God the Father’s requirement of a blood sacrifice for sin. He took upon Himself the suffering of all mankind so that the fallen humans whom the Father loves so deeply, could have a bridge back to God. On the basis of believing in Jesus as Savior and living for Him, we can live eternally with God in Heaven after death.
This blog will be a collection of stories from people who have believed the written Word of God and have experienced the truth and power personally. Each story would relate a particular situation where the promise or concept from the “Word” was lived out or “made flesh.” The purpose of this blog is to encourage readers to test and see the reality of 1) a personal relationship with Jesus Christ – the ultimate Word Made Flesh and 2) the validity, power, and timelessness of the written Word of God that continues to impact lives today.
Look for stories to come.
