The Word

John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was fully God.
John 1:14 Now the Word became flesh and took up residence among us. We saw his glory-the glory of the one and only, full of grace and truth, who came from the Father.

This earth went a very long time without God’s physical presence. Finally He sent His Word to walk this earth in the same physical characteristics we share. His Word, His Son, Jesus left the side of His Father to humble Himself as a baby of a poor couple to walk where we walk and experience the temptations we experiences. He was fully God as He walked this earth but also, at the same time, fully man with the same physical needs and emotions we experience. The big difference is He walked and experienced life on this earth in the way God originally designed. Jesus walked with God the Father and without sin. He showed us we are to walk on this earth in complete fellowship with the Father, speaking and living His love and peace to all we meet in our walk. Our question is are we willing to expend the time and effort to read and study how Jesus walked and talked on this earth? He is our example. He is the One we are to imitate. The word “Christian” means “little Christ’ A little girl will imitate what she hears and sees her mother do when the girl plays with her dolls. Will we imitate what we read Jesus did and said?
