Five Minutes with God

Five Minutes with God is a distinct and exciting approach to daily Bible devotionals. Instead of a lofty goal of going through the entire Bible—or even the New Testament—in one year, Five Minutes with God focuses on shorter passages so that the reader can absorb more of the text and apply it to everyday life. This daily podcast will step you through the Gospel accounts of the life of Christ. Each day’s podcast also ends with a thought for further reflection and a call to prayer. By reading, reflecting, and praying, Five Minutes with God will help you come to know Him, love Him, and follow Him like never before.

HOST: Michael Whitworth

Text: John 1:14-18

And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth. (John bore witness about him, and cried out, “This was he of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me ranks before me, because he was before me.’ ”) For from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace. For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. No one has ever seen God; the only God, who is at the Father’s side, he has made him known.

It is a thought unlike any that has been dreamed of by man—often thought of as preposterous or ridiculous. The very idea that deity, in all of His power, wisdom, glory, and would lay it all down and take on flesh. No god ever dreamed up by mankind would do such a thing. And yet, one of the great differences between God and any mythical god devised by the mind of men is that God loves! He is not only the all-powerful, all-knowing, all-present Creator and Ruler of the universe, but He is also a loving Father. Thus, His Son came into the world and took on flesh in order to show us God and bring grace and truth to mankind. He came because He loved us!

How does Jesus coming into the world prove the love of God?

Don’t forget to pray and have a great day!
