And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.

—John 1:14 

Jesus is the Word.  He is the personification of God’s complete communication to humanity.

That He became flesh and dwelt among us testifies that before he came: (a) He existed;(b) he was not a man (He was not “flesh.”); (c) He came from somewhere else, namely heaven.

When He came, He came as one of us (except without sin) so that He could communicate with us as one of us, and ultimately, so that He could die for us to purchase the forgiveness of our sins.

When He came and dwelt among us, we say something of His glory, not all of it, mind you.  We couldn’t see the refulgent gory of almighty God, but we saw the glory that God intended to share with human beings, created in His glory.  We saw the glory of the perfect image bearer of God Almighty.

We saw the glory of the only begotten Son of God the Father—the eternally begotten Son of God, co-equal and co-eternal with God the Father and God the Holy Spirit.

In Him we saw the fullness of God’s grace and of God’s truth.  When we see Him, we see God.

Truly there is no other like Him.  Because of who He is and because of what He did to save His people, He deserves all worship and honor and glory forever and ever without end.
