The Word

Words ~ What words specifically remind you of Christmas? As I began brainstorming, I came up with mistletoe, reindeer, wreath, Santa, pine trees, presents, snow, and carols, which reminded me of who we are singing about, Jesus. I added to my list:  star, angels, manger, nativity, Bethlehem, Mary and Joseph, shepherds, and Son of God.

The disciple John explained that Jesus was the Word. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. (John 1:1)

In the introduction to the book of John, The Message Bible explains, “God’s word takes on human form and enters history in the person of Jesus. Jesus speaks the word and it happens: forgiveness and judgment, healing and illumination, mercy and grace, joy and love, freedom and resurrection. Everything broken and fallen, sinful and diseased, called into salvation by God’s spoken word.”

The Word created our world, entered into our world, and became human. He spoke words of salvation and eternal life. Jesus said, “Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God” (Matthew 4:4). Bread alone cannot sustain life. God sustains life as we trust Him and live in obedience to His will.

May we have a word with this Savior, enter into a relationship with Him, and bring Him our words of adoration, thanksgiving, and worship.

May your Christmas be blessed!
