In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
(John 1:1 (NIV))
Do you truly realize just what this passage is saying?
We all know that Jesus is the Word made flesh. From this passage we also know that Jesus existed from the beginning. We know that Jesus was with God from the beginning. We also know, based on logical deduction, that Jesus was and is God!
Still, there is one very important realization that each of us, as the Body of Christ, must fully embrace, and that is that for us to know God we must get to know Jesus. In addition, we come to the realization that in order to know Jesus, we must know the Word! This passage clearly tells us that what we call the Bible is how we get to know God, for it is a direct reflection of God’s character.
Now that we have established some fundamental principles, I want to ask a few questions.
Do you believe that God is all powerful?
Is He able to do things beyond your imagination, or have you put God into a box and limited Him to what you can understand?
Do you believe that the Bible is the Word of God?
Did you have to think about your answers or were you able to quickly affirm that God is all powerful and that the Bible if the Word of God? If you were able to do this, I want you to logically think about what this implies based on what John 1:1 says about the Word was God. This implies that the Bible is all powerful since it is the Word of God and that the Word is God!
Do you realize the amazing power that is God’s Word?
