The incredible truth of this passage is that God did not stop at loving us from a distance. He came to where we live and struggle, to rub shoulders with us and finally, to bear our burden on his shoulders demonstrating the depth and reality of His love for us forever. The Word who was and is, who personally lived with God and was God in the beginning, became flesh and lived (tabernacled) among us in real space and time. This unique Word shockingly and stunningly entered human history and became one of us so that we might feast our eyes on His glory ‚Äď a life that overflowed with grace and truth.
