DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage

Dear Friend in the Lord,

Incarnation – Saviour: In today’s Gospel, the Son of God, the Messiah, takes on the full human nature, yet remaining fully divine.  God entering our world gives us the assurance that God is fully with us and He empathises with our human suffering and sinful tendencies.  Pray that we get to know Jesus more personally.

 Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

John 1:1, 9-14, 18

In the beginning was the Word: the Word was with God and the Word was God. The Word was the real light that gives light to everyone; he was coming into the world. He was in the world that had come into being through him, and the world did not recognise him. He came to his own and his own people did not accept him. But to those who did accept him he gave power to become children of God, to those who believed in his name who were born not from human stock or human desire or human will but from God himself.

The Word became flesh, he lived among us, and we saw his glory, the glory that he has from the Father as only Son of the Father, full of grace and truth. No one has ever seen God; it is the only Son, who is close to the Father’s heart, who has made him known.
