"And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us,
full of grace and truth; we have beheld his glory,
glory as of the only Son from the Father."
These are simple yet powerful words that come from John 1:14. As children growing up in Sunday School, we learn that God is a very powerful being and our Creator. God had a plan and it was his will for it to come true. John tells us that God said he was going to send his Son to us. God's Word became flesh, the flesh of our Lord, and Jesus was born on earth. God said it and it came true. But how can this be? How can God just speak words and they come true? This is where we learn about faith. We may not be able to see it, or even explain the things that happen. We believe because it came from God. Miracles happen all the time and they need no explanation. We believe because we have faith in God and in Jesus Christ our Lord.
