John 1:14 says, “The Word became human and made his home among us. He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness.”
He lived among us. He donned the costliest of robes, a human body. He became a friend of the sinner and a brother of the poor. He touched their sores and felt their tears and paid for their mistakes. And to all of us frightened ones, he shared the same message: “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me…I will come again and receive you to Myself” (John 14:1).
And how do we respond? Some pretend he doesn’t exist. Others hear him, but don’t believe him. But then, a few decide to give it a try. And when he calls your name, be ready. Look up. He will reach down and take you home…when Christ comes!
