This verse is the heart of the gospel. God chose to become human flesh so that He might remove the curse of our sin and make us new people.
John the apostle describes what he saw as one of the twelve. When Jesus became human flesh, He revealed the glory of God, glory full of grace and truth.
Finally, I love the verse also found in John one: “The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it” (John 1:5).
The darkness has never overcome the light. The darkness will never overcome the light.
This is a verse of eternal hope. As bad as events are, evil will never overcome the light. Christ is the light of the world and in Him we have our hope.
