The Word Become Flesh

word become flesh

The Word of life came bearing the words of life. The mystery has been revealed.

This isn’t some unexplainable weird cosmic transformation where spoken words somehow all coalesce and take on a solid form; this is the one who had spoken, inspired and preserved these words, the word of God, this is God himself, become flesh and blood, all powerful, all knowing, all encompassing, I Am that I Am Spirit, taking on the flesh of his beloved children so that they may finally understand and  accept him for, at, and as, His Word.

Jesus is the Word and the Word is Jesus. And every word written about his life, death and return is also the Word of God, and is also Jesus.

He is called the word of God

His true name is so Holy, Ancient, powerful and precious that no one knows it but him, but that name is called the Word of God.

The implications of that are mind Boggling. You take this book, this Bible, Old and New Testaments, thousands upon thousands of words, and it is all for one purpose, it all explains and encapsulates one word, a name, that we cannot even begin to comprehend, it is the name of the Son of the most high God, the one who is one with the Father.

And the closest we can come to knowing what that name is, the best that the languages of man can come up with, that even comes close to revealing who he is—is to call him the Word of God.

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

What is his name? Flip through the pages of your Bible, There is his name.

Indeed it takes all that to even begin to explain who our Lord is, there is no earthly name that can speak all of that.  

But we get to call him, in our language, a name that is easy to speak, a beautiful name that all of us know as no one other than the Christ, the Savior, our Lord and even friend. The name that we now know can mean none other than the one whose true nature, the depth of whose love, power and glory we can never fully comprehend— we get to call him Jesus.

Wow, how cool are we? Better yet, how loved are we?

little children love 1 John

 

and truly our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ. And these things we write to you that your joy may be full. 1 John 1:3—4

When you began to understand just how loved, and by whom you are loved, your joy is untouchable.
