Jesus made His home with us so that we can find our home in Him and lead others to do the same. What an incredible truth – that God would make His home with us. He has inhabited our world, experiencing its stress, our struggles, our temptations, our challenges. Family challenges? Jesus had them. Trusting God for daily provision? Yes, that, too. Ministering to hurting people? Facing opposition? Jesus empathizes and shows us the way forward.
So the Word became human and made his home among us. He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness. And we have seen his glory, the glory of the Father’s one and only Son.—John 1:14 NLT
Prayer: Jesus, living among us, You showed us the way to live. You taught us how to love others. You taught us how to suffer and sacrifice. You taught us how to lead from a position of humble submission rather than pride and position. May I live, love, and lead like You today. In Your name I pray, amen.
