In today’s (chronological) Bible reading… Psalm 106; John 1:4-14… we are introduced to the incarnation – God becoming flesh.

The coming of the Messiah… Jesus the Christ… is the point of the Bible!

God promised a Deliverer as far back as the Garden of Eden.  Jesus, after what must have seemed like forever for those who were waiting for the Messiah, was the Deliverer.  Sadly, too many didn’t recognize Jesus as the Messiah.

Jesus would be a new kind of King; the people He came to rescue often didn’t know what to do with Him.  But, Jesus continued… teaching and ministering… showing people like you and me how things work in Heaven.

“He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him.  He came to know His own, and His own did not receive Him.  But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name.”                                                                                                                                            – John 1:10-12
