John 1:14 And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only from the Father, full of grace and truth.
This is one of those verses that makes me think of how much I would have loved to be one of the "us". They saw His glory, they knew Him, they walked with Him. But we also have to remember that we have these words for us to be able to relive what it was like. When you read a book you can picture yourself as one of the characters, even picture in your mind of just how the scenery was. Well the Bible does just that for us. There are many stories and details of exactly what went on when Jesus was alive. It is an incredible storybook, it is up to us read it and see the true story that is inside. Think of it also as a diary, it takes you into the mind of that person who writes the story and you get a personal glimpse of what they saw. How exciting it is to get to visit with Jesus, even if it is on paper. It's still a true visit with Him. So take time to find a story and read, and you will get to know Jesus better with each story that you read. Let the Bible become real to you!
