JESUS THE WORD
John 1:1-5, 14. This is one of the most amazing scriptures in the whole Bible. Let’s read it. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. Verse 14, And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and glory.
There are certain key scriptures that first need to be understood before we can understand the rest of the Bible. This is one of those. Let’s list the truths that this portion of the Bible has given us.
1) The Word has always been.
2) The Word was with God
3) The Word and God are the same.
4) The Word is called He
5) All things were made by the Word.
6) The Word is alive with the life of God.
7) This life is the light for mankind.
8) This light shined in the darkness (when Jesus came), but the darkness (fallen man) didn’t receive it. But as many as did receive that light (the Word) became the children of God. Verse 14.
9) The Word became the Man Jesus, God’s only begotten Son.
Jesus is the Word manifest in the flesh. God created the heavens and the earth by the Word. Remember in Genesis one it says several times, “and God said.” In verse 26 it says let “Us make man in our image.”
To know and understand the Bible is the most important thing you can do in your life. There are many important things to consider in your life: who you will marry, your career, your education, where you will live etc., these are all of utmost importance, but none of these even compare to knowing our Father God and Jesus His son. The only way you can get to know the Heavenly Father and Jesus His son is through the Word.
As you read and study the Word with an open mind, the Holy Spirit will be able to plant the truths of God’s Word into your heart and you will soon come to a level where you can truly believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and become a child of Almighty God.
The Grace of God and the truth of His Word be with you.
