John 1:9-13 ESV
[esvignore]John 1:9-13[/esvignore] – God has come to his people in the form of a man. Deity incarnate. How much more natural a vessel could God have chosen for His creation to see and understand? To what else in this world can we relate to more naturally than another man? But many in John’s day did not see the incarnate deity, Jesus Christ. Though they saw him as a man, they do not see him as God. Though they lived in a culture where God’s name was proclaimed, they did not receive Christ as King. He was there, but he was rejected. This is true in our day as well, and the text lays out some conditions necessary to receive and believe Jesus Christ and become a true child of God.
