“So the Word became human and made his home among us. He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness. And we have seen his glory, the glory of the Father’s one and only Son” (John 1:14, NLT).
Most of us won’t get a chance to see celebrities in person, although from time to time at an airport or on a plane, you can spot one. I’ve seen a few on my travels but have probably missed some as they tend to look rather ordinary in real life, especially if they try to blend in by dressing like the rest of us.
When Jesus walked the earth as a human being, most didn’t recognize the most important celebrity in history. Even those closest to him didn’t understand exactly who he was until after the resurrection. He couldn’t help but draw attention because of his miracles and teaching, but he was just like us in every way except one—he was also God. During his time on earth God was live and in person and he still is today, though many don’t recognize him because he looks like you and me: he is God the Holy Spirit, living in us.
