In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning.

Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it.

There came a man who was sent from God; his name was John. He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all men might believe. He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light. The true light that gives light to every man was coming into the world.

He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God– children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.

The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
(John 1:1-14 (NIV))

John wrote these words to help people understand who Jesus is. John new full well who Jesus is. The words that he wrote have helped people come to this realization ever since they were written. At this time of the year when we celebrate Jesus’ birth, we all need to be reminded of Jesus’ stature.

Who is Jesus to you?

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Have you ever embraced perfection?

Every word of God is flawless;
he is a shield to those who take refuge in him.
(Proverbs 30:5 (NIV))

Have you ever held perfection?

Have you ever studied perfection?

Have you ever embraced perfection?

This is such an interesting point. It is one that I have read, but somehow I missed the implications of this passage until now.

When something is flawless, it is said to be perfect. God’s Word is flawless. It is perfect! We know God’s word as the Bible. I realize that there are numerous translations and that it is printed by man, but is not the vessel that is perfect. It is the message.

When we hold the Bible and when we study the Bible, as long as the translation is true to the original, then we are holding perfection. We are studying perfection. What is so profound is that God sent perfection to walk among us.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning.
(John 1:1-2 (NIV))

The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
(John 1:14 (NIV))

God sent His Son, Jesus, who is the Word made flesh. Jesus was and is flawless. Jesus is perfection.

Does perfection live within you?
