12. Word of God

Just a few thoughts I have been enjoying lately in relation to the Word of God. I hope to expand on this in days to come.

John 1:14 “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.”

1 Tim. 6:15-16 “he who is the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone has immortality, who dwells in unapproachable light, whom no one has ever seen or can see. To him be honor and eternal dominion. Amen. “

“whom no one has ever seen or can see” – “we have seen his glory”
The Unseen was made manifest. Rays of that light too bright for the eyes of men are revealed to our hearts in the person of Jesus Christ.

“who dwells in unapproachable light” – “and dwelt among us”
The Unapproachable came “God with us” to dwell as man among men.

“who alone has immortality” – “And the Word became flesh”
Why flesh? “Since therefore the children share in flesh and blood, he himself likewise partook of the same things, that through death he might destroy the one who has the power of death, that is, the devil…” Hebrews 2:14 
The Immortal came, partook of flesh, to die for sinful men!
