Jesus is the Word.

In John 1:1 and 14, we have Jesus introduced as the Word.  He is full of grace and truth.  He has always been with the Father.  We learn that through Him all things were created and He is the sustainer of all things.  I am amazed that as I study the Life of Christ how really amazing He is.  Jesus is the incarnation of God.  He was God with a Face.  He was the perfect union of God and man.  Never has an individual been the perfect representative of God like He was.  He of course is God.  Now how that happened is a mystery.  How does one explain the mechanics of how that happens but that is who Jesus is.  Of course to claim to be God you have to prove it and He did.  He rose from the dead.  He was the perfect sacrifice for sin.  His death, burial and resurrection secured mankind’s salvation, redemption and righteousness.  His broken body and shed blood secured us healing and salvation.  These are foundational truths for the gospel and Christianity.  Jesus came because man could not save themselves.  He lived so we could have forgiveness of sin.  There has been something that has separated man from God since the fall of man under Adam and Eve and that is of course is sin.  Jesus bridged that gap by allowing Himself to hang on a cross.  To have His body broken and His blood shed.  His death on the cross, burial in a borrowed grave and His resurrection from that same tomb gave us a chance to be reunited with God and have eternal life.  This is done by confessing our sins, renouncing them, truly being sorry for them and receiving God’s forgiveness.   I love salvation and redemption because it is so simple but complete.  Today give your life to Him and live in the full salvation God has for you.  Your promises are:  John 3:16, Rom 3:23, Rom 10:9-10, 2 Cor 5:17, John 4:4 and 2 Pet 3:18.  Your Insightful Sayings are:  It has been said that Jesus spoke more about resources than He did about heaven and yet most of His children know nothing about their proper use.  A life is like a building with proper maintenance it will be kept sound and strong.
