THE POWER OF THE WORD OF GOD
What Jesus taught and what He did are tied inseparably to Who He is. John shows Jesus as fully human and fully God. Although Jesus took upon Himself full humanity and lived as a man, He never ceased to be the eternal God Who has always existed, the Creator and Sustainer of all things, and the Source of eternal life. This is the Truth about Jesus, and the foundation of all Truth. 1 In the beginning [before all-time] was the Word (Christ), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God Himself. 2 He was [continually existing] in the beginning [co-eternally] with God. 3 All things were made and came into existence through Him; and without Him not even one thing was made that has come into being. John 1:1-2
“The Word became flesh” means becoming human. By doing so, Christ became (1) The Perfect Teacher—in Jesus’ life we see how God thinks and therefore how we should think. (2) The Perfect Example—as a model of what we are to become, He shows us how to live and gives us the power to live that way. (3) The Perfect Sacrifice—Jesus came as a Sacrifice for all sins, and His death satisfied God’s requirements for the removal of sin. 14 And the Word (Christ) became flesh and lived among us; and we [actually] saw His Glory, Glory as belongs to the [One and] Only Begotten Son of the Father, [the Son Who is truly unique, the Only One of His kind, Who is] full of Grace and Truth (absolutely free of deception).
We Serve a Mighty God Who is unlimited, All-Powerful, Omnipresent, and All-Knowing, Who bound Himself to His Word to Answered Prayer. He has Promised, “3 Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.” Jer. 33:3
We Serve a God Who has Promised, “24 And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.” Isa. 65:24
Jesus Himself is the Word—the Living Word. The pre-existent Word Who was with God “In the Beginning” has now become flesh (John 1:1-18).
Hiding (keeping) God’s Word in our hearts is a detterent to sin. This stone should inspire us to memorize Scripture. But memorization alone will not keep us from sin; we must also put God’s Word to work inour lives, making it a vital guide for everything we do.
Your Word I have treasured and stored in my heart, That I may not sin against You.
REMINDER: THE POWER OF THE WORD OF GOD!!!!
