DAILY DEVO...the Word is Jesus

As we begin reading in the book of John, John lays the foundation for what we will soon see unravel as the love that God has for us.

John very boldly states that the Word, which is the very reason for life, became flesh and lived among us...

(John 1:14) "The Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us. We have seen His glory, the glory of the One and only Son, Who came from the Father, full of grace and truth."

That may seem odd to you. How can the "Word" come alive, you might ask? I would like to bring our focus today on one word: "Word". In the first verse of John, we see that "Word" is very specifically defined...

(John 1:1) "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God."

There can never be any question about where or how the Word came to be. The Word has always been and will always be. It is unchangeable. It is Undeniable. And it is all powerful!

The "Word" is Jesus.

Jesus became flesh, to walk among us to show us firsthand that the "Word" is life and life everlasting. Many try to find fulfillment in other things; like a job or relationships, and some may find what they are looking for. But there will be no better fulfillment in life than a relationship with Jesus.

This is the very reason that Jesus came; to give life and to give it more abundantly.

Read the book of John with me. In these next chapters, we will find that Christ dwelled with John and He dwells with you and me also. Jesus is THE Word!
