John 1:14

Henry Mahan

"And 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"(John 1:14). My friends, if you will carefully consider it, this is the most extraordinary fact ever declared in human language. God became a man and "took upon Him the likeness of sinful flesh." The Ancient of Days became an infant of days. The Son of the Most-High God became a man of sorrows. He made the world; but as a man, "he had no place to lay His head." He who made the rivers asked a woman to give Him a drink of water. He who cast out devils was tempted of the devil, and the author of life died and lay in a tomb.
