Devotional Shevat 28, 5780 – Word Made Flesh

Can His Word Become Flesh Within Us?  

John 1:12-14 “ But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. The Word Becomes Flesh and the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.” 

1 Peter 1:23 “… for you have been born again [that is, reborn from above—spiritually transformed, renewed, and set apart for His purpose] not of seed which is perishable but [from that which is] imperishable and immortal, that is, through the living and everlasting word of God. For, and this is the word [the good news of salvation] which was preached to you: 

“All flesh is like grass, And all its glory like the flower of grass. The grass withers and the flower falls off, But the word of the Lord endures forever.” And this is the word [the good news of salvation] which was preached to you.  

Proverbs 4:22 for they are life to those who find them, and healing and health to all their flesh. 

John 6:55 For My flesh is true [spiritual] food, and My blood is true [spiritual] drink. He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood [believes in Me, accepts Me as Savior] remains in Me, and I [in the same way remain] in him.” 

 As we mediate or chew on His Word, hide it in our hearts; and as we remember Him through eating His body and drinking His blood, His Word can become flesh within us. When we are sowing His Word into our flesh, it must bear lasting and abundant fruit 

There are many Scriptures He has given us, promises that He has had us feed upon till they have become literally a part of our flesh; nothing can shake us off of them. I believe every Christian is 100 percent sure about John 3:16, but we must be as equally sure of Psalms 103:3-5, and Isaiah 53:4 and on and on. We need to have our minds, bodies, and Spirits completely saturated till His Word becomes our very flesh.
