And the Word became flesh and lived among us, and we have seen his glory, the glory as of a father’s only son, full of grace and truth. (John testified to him and cried out, ‘This was he of whom I said, “He who comes after me ranks ahead of me because he was before me.” ’) From his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace. The law indeed was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. No one has ever seen God. It is God the only Son, who is close to the Father’s heart, who has made him known. (John 1:14-18, NRSV)
The word became flesh and lived among us. The word here for lived is more the word, tented…
God came to us and put up a tent and decided to stay a while. He wanted to be with us and make His home with us!
He loved us enough to come and live with us, to make His home with us! He took on our nature and our lot and our flesh and lived with us!
God made Himself known to us through His son, our savior who came to us and lived with us!
