When God Became Man and Dwelt Among Us
Date: Jan 2018

People still wonder how the world began. Scientists and experts present their theories of how life started. The Bible does not debate these theories, it simply says: “In the beginning God...” and so in the opening verses of the Gospel of John, we read these words again, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God, who became flesh and dwelt among us.” Life begins when the Giver of life provides the energy to ignite that living spark - God is the Giver, Jesus is the Gift.

There has always been darkness in the world. In a sense it represents the old pre-creation chaos trying to re-assert itself. The birth of Christ is a sign of overcoming darkness by light and reminds us that God will not let the darkness have control. It is also a promise of the final triumph of light over darkness, a celebration of hope, of joy, of love and of (God’s) light. When the angel came to the shepherds and “glory shone around,” it was more than God’s light breaking into the Bethlehem night; it was “the everlasting Light” shining into every dark corner on earth. We ought to honour that “Light,” the light of Christ, the light of life, the greatest gift ever given to humanity.
