The Word Became Flesh and Dwells in Us

Open bible overlaid over Christmassy background with holly, etc.

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4 In him was life, and the life was the light of men. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

A manger filled with hay and cloths laying on top6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7 He came as a witness, to bear witness about the light, that all might believe through him. 8 He was not the light, but came to bear witness about the light.

9 The true light, which gives light to everyone, was coming into the world. 10 He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world did not know him. 11 He came to his own, and his own people did not receive him. 12 But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, 13 who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.

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.

John 1:1-14


16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. 17 And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.

Colossians 3:16-17


As God blesses us with His Word, may your words be a blessing to Him and to all who read them, and . . .

May your verbs be active.
May your adverbs be advisedly absent.
May your sentences never end with a preposition.
May your infinitives never be split up.
(We’re sure you know how to easily correct them.)
May your italics never be used for emphasis.
May your sentences never begin with “But” or “And.”
But may you know when to break the rules.
And may you all have a very Merry Christmas!
