*Daily Reading: *

John 1:14-18 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth. (John bore witness about him, and cried out, "This was he of whom I said, 'He who comes after me ranks before me, because he was before me.) For from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace. For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. No one has ever seen God; the only God, who is at the Father's side, he has made him known.

The Challenge:

Pray for open eyes as you read over John 1:14-18

Ask your fellow athletes to recite the memory verse throughout the week. We are striving for accountability! As iron sharpens iron...

Memory Verse of the week:

John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

Take it further:

What does John mean when he says that the Word became flesh?

What is the son full of? Does this help us to be assured of what he says?

From whose fullness have we received grace upon grace?

Can we obtain grace from being obedient to the law? Why or why not?
