A Delightful Friday Morning To Everyone! Thank you for your wonderful responses and comments. Give God all the glory.
PRAYER: " Most Caring Father, Most High God! Those that trouble us conntinue to increase. Many are there that rise against us. Many say, "There is no help for them in God!" But You, O God, are a shield for us; You are our glory and the One who lifts up our head. We cry out to You with a loud voice and You hear us from Your Holy Hill. We will not be afraid of the thousands or the millions who set themselves against us and around us. Save us O Lord our God! Salvation belongs to You and Your blessings are upon Your people. Have nercy upon us and hear our prayer. This we pray in Jeus' Holy name, Amen!"
MESSAGE: Jesus the PREEXISTENT WORD!
1. As we continue to peruse the first portrait of Jesus in John's gallery, we see still something else about Him.
a. Jesus is the CREATIVE WORD! "All things were made by Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made" (John 1:3).
b. Jesus was the energy behind the creation of the universe.
c. He stood at the age of nothing and spoke creation into existence (Col 1:16-17).
d. He is our God and our Savior. Our pardon from sin and our salvation is in His control (Matt 28:18).
2. Thus we see these five truths in the first three verses of John:
a. Jesus is the PREEXISTENT WORD!
b. Jesus is the CONSTANT WORD!
c. Jesus is the COMMUNING WORD!
d. Jesus is the CONTROVERSAL WORD!
e. Jesus is the CREATIVE WORD!
3. Picture this! Jesus has always been and will always be. The power of His WORD is beyond our capability to even imagine. Who is the supernnatural being that created something out of nothing? We exist only because He ctreated us and we have special gifts only because He gave them to us. Apart from God we are nothing. To try to live without Him is to abodon the purpose for which He created us. Are you living for Jesus? He died for you! To Be Continued Monday!
May God help us to see how vauable and unique we are in His eyes.
In His Wonderful Word and Grace, Vic.
