Text: John 1:1-5, “In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through him and without him not one thing came into being. What has come into being in him was life, and the life was the light of all people. The light shines into the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it.”
Devotional: When we look at the heart of Advent, we can find no better verses than those of today’s text. The center of the message is here, incarnation, God becoming human. In order to save us from ourselves, God became one of us. After all, he created us in the beginning. Sin and disobedience has robbed us of what we were created to be. In the end, Advent is about God becoming human so that we might once again be the humans we were created to be.
