Simply Jesus- Moves In

John 1 & 2

(v14) The Word became flesh and blood, and moved into the neighbourhood.

Being brought up in a small village where you knew everybody somebody moving in to the village was big news. They were often looked on with a bit of suspicion and were sometimes called "Outsiders".

I remember one older lady who lived in the village who had actually lived there a lot longer than I had been born but everybody referred to her as "Glasgow" Ellen. Signifying even decades later that she was not originally from the village.

When Jesus moves in to the neigbourhood, the Bible tells us that the people who should have been ready to receive him did not and did not even realise the greatness of the person who had just moved in.

I'm so thankful that Jesus has moved into our neighbourhood.
