Advent Meditation Week 2

December 10: John 1:9-18

  • “The Word became flesh.” Reflect for a moment on the incarnation (being made into flesh). The eternal, all-powerful, all-knowing, sinlessly perfect Son become human so that you could become a child of God. Wow!!
  • Jesus was full of grace and truth. Is it easier for you to give grace to people or challenge them with the truth? Humbly pray for the capacity to do both this Christmas.

John 1:9-18English Standard Version (ESV)

The true light, which gives light to everyone, was coming into the world. 10 He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world did not know him. 11 He came to his own,[a] and his own people[b] did not receive him. 12 But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God,13 who 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 became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son[c] from the Father, full of grace and truth. 15 (John bore witness about him, and cried out, “This was he of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me ranks before me, because he was before me.’”) 16 For from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace.[d] 17 For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. 18 No one has ever seen God; the only God,[e] who is at the Father's side,[f] he has made him known.
