In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made....The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. (Jn. 1:1-3, 14)
These verses serve as a great announcement, a grand fanfare that ushers a King into our midst—they are meant to get our attention.
The beauty of the King that is announced surpasses that of any earthly king bedecked in gems and finery. John's description is meant to stir our hearts to hearken to the presence of the Christ, the One who exhibits grace and truth—the very nature of God. Have you come into His light?
