Jesus is the Word
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made” (John 1.1-3 NIV).
Language allows us to share our thoughts, feelings and lives with other people. Whether we use spoken words or hand gestures, we feel connected with others when we communicate. Someone who is new to a language may feel very isolated if they are unable to speak with the people around them. Being acknowledged and understood is one of the basic aspects of being alive. Without language we feel alone. The Bible says Jesus is the “Word of God.” He is the Word communicating connectiveness within the Holy Trinity (God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit). He is also the Word communicating connectiveness between God and His people. Jesus is God’s mouthpiece telling all of us that we are loved, we are valuable and we are worth dying for. Just before Jesus died on the cross, He declared, “It is finished” (John 19.30). What He communicated at that profound moment was that His Blood shed for our sins had become words of grace spreading all over the world. Through Jesus, we have powerful words that we can claim every day: “Death has no sting” (1 Cor. 15.55). “We are forgiven” (Matt. 26.28). “We are righteous” (Romans 3.22). “We are God’s Children” (1 John 3.1). “We are co-heirs with Christ” (Romans 8.17).Jesus died to give us His Words, so let us live in their truth and declare them as ours.
