THE STORY OF JESUS: John 1:6-18
“The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us.” (John 1:14)
Can you think of a ‘bad’ neighborhood near you?
A less than desirable area where you’d prefer not to live?
Jesus moved into a less than desirable neighborhood.
He moved in with us.
Humanity has turned God’s paradise into Satan’s garbage dump.
We have exchanged God’s glory for shame, misery, cruelty, darkness.
Our world is unsafe, and no amount of laws can make it better.
The problem is within us, we have lost our creation identity.
But God comes to us in Jesus, when we refuse to come to Him.
God knows the mess or struggle or weakness you are in.
God wants us back as His children; He comes to us in Jesus to do that.
We see God’s glory humbled in Jesus, dying so that we might be restored.
Restored as God’s children, as Jesus’ brothers and sisters.
Jesus wants to make His dwelling with you; will you let Him in?
What do you sense the Lord saying to you?
Lord, I cannot clean up my heart for You, I need Your help. Thank You for coming into my life, for restoring me as God’s child, and helping me shine with God’s glory!
