One of Christ’s names is the Word. He existed from the beginning. He was with the Father always. Everything was made through Him and without Him nothing was made. In Him was life and the life was the light of men.
Our dear John came to bear witness of Jesus who is the Light of the world. He gives light to every man coming into the world. Jesus was born to Mary who was of Jewish descent. The Jews are God’s chosen people, His own did not receive Him.
The Word became flesh and dwelt among us. The law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. John declared himself, “the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the LORD.” John also said, he was not worthy to untie Jesus’ sandals.
Phillip and Nathanael joined John in following Jesus. This God-man always spoke and taught the Word of truth in a powerful way, so that lives were radically changed. Here was the Word made flesh, standing in front of them. His voice brings healing, moves mountains and brings peace in the midst of horrific storms.
Believe in, hope in, trust in the Word; made flesh! You will be constantly amazed at all He will accomplish on your behalf!
