The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us.  We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. (John 1:14, NIV)

What a mystery!  We are trying to comprehend the PRE-EXISTENT WORD of God … the “Logos” which was present when God “spoke” (i.e. “Word”) the universe into being!  How does one understand something that exists before and outside of time and space, when all we know and observe is bound by time and space?!

Then further try to comprehend how that pre-existent, eternal, immortal and all-powerful Word allowed himself to be born in the flesh – born of a woman – then raised, taught to eat, walk and speak! How can one explain that?  We can’t.  It is simply incomprehensible!

And yet, that is how the Bible describes Jesus – The Word made flesh.  When we look at Jesus, we literally behold the Father’s grace, glory and truth!  How thankful are we that God has chosen to reveal himself to us in Jesus – the Word of God!  Praise the Lord, Amen!
