The Coming Word

“The Word became flesh
and made his dwelling among us”

(John 1:14)

Reflection:
God’s Word is a revelation of God. When He speaks He reveals Himself – His being, His will and His power. It is a revelation of total majesty, absolute holiness and astounding beauty. We have also come to understand it as a revelation of astonishing love.

Now that Word of God, that expression of Himself, is taking on a completely new dimension. The Word is becoming flesh, ‘being made in human likeness.’ (Philippians 2:7) And in that form and expression He is coming to live amongst humankind.

This is the greatest wonder of them all. That God should ‘become flesh and dwell among us’ – that He should enter into our earthly life as one like us – that He should become as one of us so that we might become one with Him.

Response:
Walk these last hours, conscious of the unfolding revelation of God’s great love.

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, whilst so many fail to see, help me to watch and wait in wonder. Amen.
