03 Dec Presence Devotional 6
And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth. — John 1:14
God came to earth. God came to us. The Son of God came and fully revealed the perfect and true presence of God to us. If you want to know who God is and what He is like – look at Jesus. All through the scripture, we see His attributes in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. He is love, life, peace, kindness, power, mercy, joy, and more. In all these things – He fully revealed the perfect and true presence of God.
Ask God to help you see Him in the scripture today. Read John 1 – the whole chapter again and ask Him to help you see Him and know His presence.
If you have children:
Ask your kids their favorite things about Jesus. Just talk about him for a few minutes. Tell them your favorite things. Enjoy the short conversation. May this time help us learn to speak of Jesus with our kids.
