“The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us”


“The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth” (John 1:14)


Maranatha, the Lord Jesus, come quickly. 


Amen, Maranatha! Lord Jesus, come to the midst of us who are swaying with darkness and emptiness. Please come and grant your grace to the Korean churches that are being stained with division, conflict, and discrimination. Let love flourish among us, so we may build caring and inclusive communities. 


We crave the news of Christmas not only because of how our lives have become broken in the darkness of COVID-19. The church, which should be the foundation of God’s love, has lost its first love and the mission to be the salt and light of this world has been abandoned and trampled on.


Jesus left the throne in heaven and to us as a human. He was born in a manger because there were no places to stay and arrived at a time when newborns were brutally slaughtered and scenes of parents heart-breakingly crying were common. Life was being slaughtered by ruthless power, and Jesus arrived in the form of a fragile young baby in the face of power and violence suppressing and exploiting the poor. However, the angels who appeared before the shepherds sang, “Glory to God in highest heaven, and peace on earth” (Luke 2:14).


The Lord, the King of Peace, rejects the powerful and raises the humble. The Lord comes to us to bring forth good things. As God’s will is fulfilled on earth as it is in heaven through the incarnation in Jesus Christ, our hope becomes reality. 

I pray that all members of the PROK, as well as all the Korean churches, embrace the Lord, who is the path, truth, and life.


The Lord, who comes to us who are weary and walking through the deep, dark valleys of chaos. The Lord is the source of life who revives, restores, and redeems us. 


May the grace of  Christ, who came as Baby Jesus, be with us.
