In The Flesh

The Bible says that we’re body, mind and spirit – but sometimes it feels like we’re being told our bodies don’t matter, or are something to be ashamed of.

In contrast, John writes about Jesus saying – “That …which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked at and our hands have touched”.

Jesus’ followers had reached out their hands and found warm flesh, a body that eats, talks, laughs, loves, weeps and bleeds like we do. The good news of 1 John is that in Jesus we have someone who is with us, in the flesh.

  1. Where do people hear the message that their body is something to be ashamed of?
  2. How does the affirmation of Jesus’ body affect the way your ink about your own body?
