29: Never Done Before or Since
Scripture Lesson: John 1:10-14
On this date in 2002, Brian Sprout – a Division
3 All-American – became the first and only player in the recorded history of
baseball to hit for the home-run cycle in order. The St. Olaf College slugger
hit a solo shot, a two-run homer, a three-run homer, and a grand slam in four
consecutive at bats during a 39-4 rout of Augsburg College. Never done before
Today we find in John’s Gospel something else
that has never been done before or since. The Word (Jesus) became flesh and
dwelt among us. From the beginning of time, the Word was with God and was the
agent of creation. Jesus left the glories of His heavenly Home as God’s Son to
come to this world in the form of a man. Jesus came to this world for only one
purpose – to pay the price for our sins and mistakes by dying on the cross.
What does it mean to you that
“the Word became flesh and dwelt among us”?
What did Jesus give up to
come to this world?
Thank Him for loving us that much!
Jesus gave up the glories of heaven for us, to
come to this world, to suffer, and die for our sins. He paid the price for us,
a price we could not pay.
