Love with Skin On: Reflecting on John 1:14


Love with skin on. Discover the significance of love incarnate through Jesus Christ. Understand the value of human existence and find redemption through the Mediator and Redeemer. Reflect on God’s love for you and embrace the worth of human life.

Introduction: The Significance of Love Incarnate

If you want to know what love is, then look at Jesus. Jesus is Love with skin on. In John 1:14, we read the powerful and profound words:

So the Word became human and made his home among us.

John 1:14 (NLT)

These words may be familiar to us, but their meaning is extraordinary. They represent the pinnacle of God’s love for us, as he becomes one with humanity in the flesh of Jesus Christ.

Identifying with Humanity

Through Jesus Christ, God identifies with us in our human life. He understands our weaknesses and shares in our sufferings. Whatever we may be going through, Jesus Christ has experienced it alongside us. In times of difficulty, Jesus invites us to come to him and find rest (Matthew 11:28-30).

The Value of Human Existence

God’s love for us, demonstrated through Jesus Christ, affirms the immense value of human life. If God deemed it worthy to become human, then we must not undervalue ourselves or fail to recognise the worth in those around us. The Word resides within us, and our humanity is forever home for the One who is eternal.

Love With Skin On: The Way to Redemption

By becoming a human being, God provided the only means for true salvation from our sin and fallenness. Jesus Christ opened the way to become our Mediator and Redeemer, reconciling us with God and repairing our relationship with him.

Take a moment to reflect on the depth of God’s love, as demonstrated through Jesus Christ. Allow this truth to shape your perspective on yourself and others, and let it inspire you to embrace the value of human life.

Reflection Question

How does the knowledge that God became human in Jesus Christ impact your understanding of his love for you and the value of your own existence?
