Passage John 1:1-14
As we come to the end of our focus on the 9 Christmas lessons we arrive at John Chapter 1, where John tells us that “The Word became flesh and dwelt among us” This week we’ll think about: What does this tell us about Jesus?
- Who is he?
- What is he like?
- What does he want?
3 readings to mull over during the Christmas period as we think about the word becoming flesh and dwelling among us.
- Reading 1 – (Colossians 1:15-20) The Word… Who is Jesus? (Holy, God)
- Reading 2 – (Philippians 2:5-8) Became Flesh… What is he like? (Humble,Emmauel)
- Reading 3 – (1 John 4:10) Dwelt among us… What does it want? (Real Love)
Use these helps below to guide you as you meditate on these readings.
1. Pause… take 1 minute to slow down, to centre yourself and ask God to speak to you through his word..
2. Read slowly a few times… take time to slowly read the verses, taking in each word and really focusing on whats written.
3. What do you notice?… what stands out, a word? a line? and overall thought? what is it that stands out to you?
4. Pray… Pray about it, take the thing that stands out and give that over to God.
