John 1: 14 (HCSB): "The Word became flesh and took up residence among us. We observed His glory, the glory as the One and Only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth."
The Word became flesh. The New Living Translation says: "So the Word became human and made his home among us." John 1:1 tells us that this Word is Jesus Christ, and that He is God. God became human. God "moved into the neighborhood" as The Message puts it. He is here with us.
There is often times when we want someone with flesh and bones to help us, to hear us, to be with us. We are reminded in this passage that God did this. And, He is still with us today in the form of His Holy Spirit.
Today, think about how different things would be if Jesus was walking beside in the flesh - and realize that He is walking inside you in the Spirit. Now live the life that you saw differently.
