You just cannot begin John’s first Chapter at verse 14. You have to begin at the beginning… “In the beginning was the Word…” Genesis comes alive to us again. He was there. Jesus was there. In Him was life, and that life was the light of men. That light shines in any darkness, but the darkness has not understood it. And I puzzled over it until verse 14: “… the word became flesh and dwelt among us.” The Word was still distant to me until Eugene Peterson’s Message, made it understandable, made it come alive: The Word became flesh and blood and moved into the neighborhood – He was here, right next door. I could be with Him; knock on His door, any time. And it is still true today! May we renew our strength because of Him and His proximity as once again we renew this Christmas season! Amen.
