The Word became Flesh

John 1:14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth. #Bible

What God had to say to the world was given so perfectly, it had to be given by God’s only Son. So perfectly given as to leave nothing out. The Word couldn’t be just words, but also actions, and only Jesus the Son of God could carry them out.
The Word was made flesh to give us a taste of the fellowship of God, so Jesus dwelt among us.
What it must have been like to see Jesus in the flesh, especially knowing he is God. Seeing Him in all that He said and did, even Dying on the cross and rising from death, wow that’s the Glory of God.
Not only was Jesus full of Grace and Truth, he also distributed it freely and abundantly, ushering those who believe in Him into Righteousness, free to fellowship with God the Father.
This verse like many reminds me of just how little I really know about my God, revealed to me in the Father, Jesus, and especially the Holy Spirit. I hope you like me will search the scriptures, as well as your relationship with God to continually know Him better.

Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. #Bible

We don’t know, but God knows His plans, thoughts, and designs for us. His plans thoughts and designs for our welfare, our completeness, and wholeness. His thoughts are pure and good. God has no evil, bad, dysfunctional, or wrong thoughts towards us.
God only wants the best for us, its what His pure perfect Love demands. He gives us Shalom, which is Jesus.
Shalom is to be in a state of wholeness. Also to restore or make right through payment or restitution. Which is exactly what our Savior Jesus came and did.
To wish Shalom on someone is to desire completeness in their life, Jesus delivered us into this new state of Peace/Shalom with our Father above all father’s.
If we strive to understand what our Fathers design or plans for us are, our reaction is to have nothing less than absolute devotion and obedience to Him expressing our Love and gratitude. God is Wonderful, Shalom.
