GOD’S GRACE

February 1, 2016

Monday

 

John 1:14

 

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.

 

 

LESSON

 

The Word,” who existed co-equal with God before anything else came into being, “became flesh”a human being.This is the most concise statement of the Incarnation. He did not just appear to be a man; He became one. Yet He maintained His full deity. The word “became” usually implies a complete change, but that was not true in Jesus’ case. He did not cease to be God. “Flesh” in Scripture has both a literal meaning, namely, material human flesh, and a metaphorical meaning, human nature. A second, less used, metaphorical meaning is all that we were in Adam before our regeneration.

How do we replenish our exhaustion? The world into which Jesus was born was spiritually weary. We too are worn out from conflict, moral uncertainty. God has acted to come among us and to give us power to become free from exhaustion.
