20 October 2020 – John 1:14 (NIV)

Scripture

The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

Reflection

Have you ever read something and the words seemed to just jump off the pages and became alive to you? That is the power of words. What an amazing, creative God who gave us His son Jesus as the Word of God. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” John 1:1. Jesus taught by speaking God’s truth and through his actions in the flesh, his words and deeds recorded by scribes and witnessed by thousands. To this day Jesus’ legacy of words remain so that we can know him more through reading the bible, speaking and hearing from him in prayer, meditation, and through many other ways. He is a God who loves to commune with us and invites us to dialogue with him, to know His heart.

Just as in a human relationship where we get to know someone really well through IN PERSON communication, God gave us His Word. As Hebrews 4:12 says: “For the Word of God is living and powerful”. We don’t need to see the body in the tomb, and we don’t need to bow to a made object; the one we worship is ALIVE! May we know Jesus like words jumping off the pages, that can be seen and understood.

Thoughts for the day

  • If there is a bible passage that you’ve read before, but do not understand it, read it again and ask God to reveal its meaning and make the word alive to you, or reveal something new to you about Him that you had not seen before.

Prayer

Wherever you are, take time to acknowledge God and trust in Him again. Give God your worries. Take a moment to give each thing you are worrying about back to God.
