April 29: Never Done Before or Since


Scripture Lesson: John 1:10-14


On this date in 2002, Brian Sprout – a Division 3 All-American – became the first and only player in the recorded history of baseball to hit for the home-run cycle in order. The St. Olaf College slugger hit a solo shot, a two-run homer, a three-run homer, and a grand slam in four consecutive at bats during a 39-4 rout of Augsburg College. Never done before or since!


Today we find in John’s Gospel something else that has never been done before or since. The Word (Jesus) became flesh and dwelt among us. From the beginning of time, the Word was with God and was the agent of creation. Jesus left the glories of His heavenly Home as God’s Son to come to this world in the form of a man. Jesus came to this world for only one purpose – to pay the price for our sins and mistakes by dying on the cross.

  1. What does it mean to you that “the Word became flesh and dwelt among us”?

  2. What did Jesus give up to come to this world?

  3. Thank Him for loving us that much!

Jesus gave up the glories of heaven for us, to come to this world, to suffer, and die for our sins. He paid the price for us, a price we could not pay.

I love these pictures, basuece through them I see LOVE,HOPE, TRUTH and EVERLASTING LIFE WITH MY SAVIOR. The pictures of his CRUCIFICTION tells me that if he could endour all the pain and humiliation, then so can I. You are not worshiping the pics, but seeing what our LORD went through for all of us. We were made in HIS IMAGE and COLOR HAS NO MEANING IN HIS EYES. I am Native American and in our language that He gave us, HE is Wanka Tanka, The Great Spirit, Our Creator. All he wants EVERYONE to do is LOVE ONE ANOTHER and TELL OTHERS ABOUT HIM. Thank you Great Spirit for your Unmerciful Treatment, I am waiting for you to return. God Bless Everyone.
