14 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.
God lived among us. Let that really sink into you mind and your heart. The creator of all things became man to live with us. How many religions teach that? Most teach of mankind working up to God but in Christianity Jesus came to our wretched, dark, sinful world. God left his paradise to arrive in a manger to live the life of a poor traveler only to die on a cross. All for the sake of us. That, my friends, is love.
