Jesus Is...the Word in the Flesh (John 1:14-18)Pastor Joe Sanders, January 23, 2011
Part of the Jesus Is... series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
Ideas are...just that- they are ideas. There's not a lot of tangibility to them so long as they remain in the realm of the theoretical, philosophical. Ideas can change to world, but they have to be "fleshed out." We can have ideas about people or things or inventions or hopes or dreams or plans- but they don't change anything, impact anything or ultimately impact anything until they are made into a reality. Man has had ideas about God for millennia, but God knew that our ideas were all wrong and out of sync with the reality of who he was. God knew that we needed a full vision of who he was- so he showed us ALL of himself through Jesus Christ. We can know God and know Jesus and be like him and worship him and live life like him!

14And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. 15John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me. 16And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace. 17For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. 18No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him. (KJV)
