Man used to have a close communion with God, but that communion was destroyed they disobeyed the divine command given by God in the garden of Eden. That sin dragged all humanity with it and from that scenario a wall between God and man was created. Would everything stay like this? Would the failure of a man keep us chained in sin forever? In no way, because Christ descended and dwelt among us and overcame sin and death to give us eternal salvation.
It is good that we understand this that “the Word became flesh.” Let’s read a few verses in the book of John:
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 He was with God in the beginning.
3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.
4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind.
5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
John tells us here that in the beginning was the Word, that is, the Word exists from the beginning of everything, but, who is the Word? That word comes from the Greek Logos which means word, speech or reason. That is to say, when using the Greek word logos, is referring to Jesus Christ, meaning that in the beginning Jesus Christ has always been, that in principle He was with God and not only that He was with God but that He was God.
Through Jesus Christ all things have been created, through Him we breathe, we move, we get up and we drink every glass of water in our day to day life. Jesus Christ is our reason for living, and that is why we are going to find words in the Bible such as: “Put your eyes on the author and finisher of the faith.” Jesus is the only thing we need, if He is with us, we are complete.
That Word became flesh, lived among us as a man being God, suffered all kinds of temptations, suffered in vituperation, died for us and death on the cross, was scourged, hated and abandoned by all, and all this was done for love, for love of you and me, to save us from sin and hell.
Let us give glory to the only begotten Son of God, for the love that He has poured out upon us is great. If we put together the love of all the people who love us, of our mothers, children or couple, none of those loves would reach the stature of the love that Christ felt for us at the time of dying on the cross.
