The Bible’s Greatest Mystery and Miracle – John 1:14 – Inspirational Bible Verses

the Word became flesh dwelt among us John 1 14There are many great events and miracles that take place in the Bible. There is the creation of the earth and all the universe – definitely a great event. There are recorded miracles of the dead rising and living again. There are miracles recorded where the lame walk and the blind see. We see great events and miracles where men are not consumed by fire, water is turned to wine, humans walk on water, healings, and fire from heaven etc.

But the greatest miracle that ever occurred was without any pomp and circumstance. It occurred in an obscure location, amidst a privileged few, where a baby was born to a virgin as God became flesh and dwelt among us. The incarnation of God stands alone as the greatest miracle that ever occurred. The highest God was born in the lowest place assuming the form that He would redeem.

The birth of the universe pales in comparison to the incarnate birth of Christ. He who gave light and life to the world, gave eternal life and light to mankind as he was born unheralded in a manger.  In this birth lies the greatest mystery of all, that God could humble himself in love to be born as a child in order to redeem all of humanity. This event recorded in the pages of time forever rewrote the future for each and every one of us, each word being penned with the blood that was shed to ransom a lost and dying world.

As we learn of the miracles of men being saved from the mouth of lions, and a morsel of bread and fish feeding a hungry crowd of 5,000, let us learn of the mercy of God miraculously loving mankind in such a manner that He would suffer long and hard that He might be able to rescue us from a certain death in sin.

Christ, in whom there is no beginning and no end, took a page out of time to begin a work as a baby in Bethlehem that He would finish in His appointed time as a man upon the cross. The holy miracle of Jesus’ birth sets Him apart from the rest of humanity. The divine delivery is unparalleled as God transformed the laws of nature, showing us how far He was willing to go to redeem us.

Christ Jesus became flesh and lived among us John 1:14 – There is no greater miracle. In this we must REJOICE. \o/

John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

  1. The Bible in a nutshell. Really well said. Brings tears of gratitude.

  2. everything has paled and i feel a real urge to know God right away.please pray and guide me.Thank you.

  3. Truly incredible! What an awesome thought! As I read this excellent post, it brought to mind that what we consider “miracles” are really nothing to God. As Gabriel assured Mary, “with God nothing shall be impossible” (Luke 1:37).

  4. Thank you for reminding us Darrell of the Greatest Miracle ever, Emanuel, God with us. Jesus Birth is recorded very clearly in Scripture including the day He was born, the 25th of December, some my be confused about this Truth but God is not, as you shared…

    “This event recorded in the pages of time forever rewrote the future for each and every one of us, each word being penned with the blood that was shed to ransom a lost and dying world.”

    God knew the exact moment Jesus would be Born and also Die, lets not doubt that He recorded it for those who have eyes to see.

    Thanks again Darrell for a great message with a great focus, our Awesome God of Love and Compassion.

    Christian Love from both of us -Anne

    • Thanks for sharing Anne – The birth of our Redeemer gives us all cause to rejoice. May we all have eyes to see His grace -In Christ Darrell

      • Yes Darrell , it’s very True, we are to be very thankful for God’s Mercy and Grace and also show that we have His free gift of Salvation in our lives.

        So many today have itching ears and so deny His Truth shown by their words and actions, if we doubt any of God’s Truth in Scripture, we are still in darkness and childish, we have not matured, to say we Love God or that He indwells us, means we show both are Truth in our lives and as we walk as Jesus walks, we are like Him in this world.

        1 John 4:17-19 Herein is our Love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as He is, so are we in this world. There is no fear in Love; but perfect Love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in Love. We Love Him, because He first Loved us.

        1 John 3: 1-11 ( 6-7 ) Whosoever abideth in Him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen Him, neither known Him. Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as He is righteous.

        Christian Love from both of us – Anne.

  5. I am in awe that we are loved this much!!! PRAISE HIS HOLY NAME!!!!

  6. Amen and amen, Darrell. Nothing more significant than this. There is so much about the incarnation that we don’t fully understand–how He became us so He could place us in Him forever. This “Divine-togetherness,” as it’s been called. It just makes my head go tilt!🙂 What an amazing God who loves us this much!

  7. What a love story that God would give His Son to us and loved us before we love Him.
    Without Jesus Christ the world will still be dark in sins and hopeless. Thank God Jesus was willing to be the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world.

    Praise God and I want to share this message that you have so beautifully related, Darrell.
    I know you will agree for who could withhold such a message? Thank you.
    Look for it on Sunday 26 January, 2014.

    blessings to you and family

    Evelyn

  8. Amen. Sharing thanks Darrell. Blessings to you and Gracie❤

  9. Funny how something can suddenly strike a chord. I’ve been a believer for a long time, so none of this is new to me. However, something about the way you present this makes my heart ache in a way I didn’t know was still possible. I guess I forget to ponder the wonder of this miracle…Thank you, Darrell, for such a beautiful and moving reminder. Blessings to you.
