Word for the Weekend ~ John 1

"Adoration of the Shepards" by Gerard von Honthorst

"He was in the world and though the world was made through Him,
the world did not recognize Him.
He came to that which was His own,
but His own did not recieve Him.

Yet to all who received Him, to those who believed in His name,
He gave the right to become children of God --
children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband's will,
but born of God.

The Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us.
We have seen His glory,
the glory of the One and Only,
who came from the Father,
full of grace and truth."
