We find a remarkable statement right out of the gate in John's Gospel: the Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us (John 1:14). This brief phrase captures the idea of incarnation, God becoming flesh and blood, which stands at the center of our Christian faith. But, do we really take this foundational truth seriously in the way we engage with God? We tend to focus our faith on knowing the right "words", the right beliefs, the right information, but does this focus honor God's work in the incarnation? When we take the incarnation seriously, we hear God's call to be more fully human: to take all this information in our minds and make it real in our daily lives. God wants to transform us entirely, our hearts and minds and everything else. What will it mean for us to know and follow God with our whole selves - our flesh and blood?
