Jesus, the Word of God

Who is Jesus?

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

Before there was anything, He was there.  Before the world, before time, Jesus existed as God and with God.  Nothing that we know was made without Him.  He had His hand in it all – and He still does.

The Word became flesh.  He entered into time and put skin on for our benefit.  He lived and walked among us, to complete a life lived without sin in complete righteousness.  He was God’s revelation of Himself to man, eating and drinking among them, feeling their pain, and laying down His own life, on His own accord.

The treasure of heaven, God’s best, left and entered into His creation.  He bankrupted heaven to be born a baby to a virgin mother of no wealth.  The Word became a servant and showed us what love really is.  Jesus was and is, in every way, God’s way of showing Himself – His character, His love, His example, His sacrifice, His forgiveness.  He is God.
