Everything That God Is, Jesus Is

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”

John 1:1

Ponder This

The apostle John had lived and walked with Jesus for three years. He had seen Jesus in all kinds of situations. Years have passed. Now Jesus has gone back to Heaven, and John, an aged man, writes these words. As a Jew, John would have an ingrained resistance to any kind of idolatry. Yet he said of the Lord Jesus Christ that He is fully God and calls Him “the Word.”

What is a word? A word is an expression of an invisible thought. You can’t hear my thoughts, but you can hear my words; therefore, you know my thoughts. You can’t see my thoughts. My thoughts are invisible. But my words make the invisible known to you.

Everything God is, Jesus is. Everything God has, Jesus has. Everything God does, Jesus does. Jesus is God, fully God. He is not part-God and part-man. He’s not all God and no man. He’s not all man and no God. He is the God-man. Jesus makes the invisible God known to man. He is the very Word of God. He is God’s Word to this human race. He is God in human flesh.

Practice This

There has never ever been another like the Lord Jesus Christ with a supernatural nature. Read John 1:1-18 today. Have you acknowledged Jesus as the One and Only?
