And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us…
Hebrews 4:15 says, “For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.” That verse says it all, really. God is not some distant ruler who seeks to be appeased by outlandish rituals. He knew that our sin kept us from coming to Him, so He came to us, wrapped in flesh. He became one of us that we might become like Him.
He walked and He talked among men. He knew them personally. He knew them intimately. He was known as a friend of sinners (Luke 7:34). He touched the untouchable and loved the unlovable. He sought out the despised and rejected. He came “that they might have life,” He said, “and that they might have it more abundantly” (John 10:10).
The woman at the well found that, when we are unwilling to search for Him, His is willing to search for us. My friend, no matter where you are in life, Jesus wants to meet you where are. You don’t have to get cleaned up. You don’t have to build an altar. All you have to do is acknowledge His presence right where you are, and He will meet you there.
Do you know the Lord today? I mean, do you know Him personally? If not, He gave His life that you may do so. Only through the shed blood of Jesus can we know Him. If you will turn from all sin and trust Jesus alone to save you, He will save you today and keep you saved forever. Thank God He is a personal Savior!
