Psalm: 41


John: This marks the opening of John’s gospel. As the gospel closes, John states that if everything Jesus did had been written down, John doubts the world could contain them all. Verse 14 is the pivotal verse of all of scripture: “And the Word became flesh (man) and dwelt among us.” I think that not enough could be written about this verse alone. The very idea that God would become flesh should drive us to our knees in respect. I have said it before: there is not event in all of human history more important than this one. Not Jesus’ birth, nor His death, nor even His resurrection. Ponder that.

Gospel: John 1:1-18

New Testament: Acts 2:37-47

Old Testament: Judges 6:25-40
