The Word

John 1:1  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
John 1:14a The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us.
John 14:29. Jesus answered: …..“Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father….”

Words. We use them constantly. Written, spoken, in our thoughts. Emailed, texted, whatsApp’d, phone calls, conversations person to person. Different languages, different expressions. There is an almost unlimited number of ways in which we communicate using words. But the problem with words is that they can mean different things to different people. For example, the word ‘Home’ might mean a place of warmth and love for some people, but a place of abuse for others. The word ‘God’ might mean a loving Heavenly Father to some, but is a swear word for others.
So how can God communicate with us about who He really is in a way that cannot be misinterpreted? 2000 years ago He came up with a way, a breath taking solution, universal and eternal in its scope and consequences. God wanted to communicate His love for mankind in a way that was unambiguous, that would be so radical that it would put on record forever everything we need to know about Him. And He did it by sending His only Son Jesus, who not only showed how much God loved us, but who ultimately would die for our sins, enabling all those who believe in Him to be with God forever as His children. Jesus is the Way and the Word who is God.
