The Word Came

John 1:1, 1:14, 1:18

There are many aspects of the Christmas narrative, but today I want to focus on Jesus Christ as the Word.  This is a translation of the Greek word Logos, and to me a word is a means of communications.  A word takes an idea or concept in the mind and gives it expression.  Jesus Christ, the Word, gives God expression to man.

Jesus Christ is the Word Eternal v. 1

o   Deuteronomy 6:4

o   John 10:30

Jesus Christ is the Word Incarnate  v. 14

Jesus Christ is the Word Declared  v. 18

o   John 14:6

o   John 5:39

Celebrate Our Savior!

Luke 2:1-20

Often, when we are overexposed or oversaturated with someone or some thing, it tends to dull our hearts.  We can see that in the way many Americans are dull-hearted towards the Gospel, because they have heard the message so many times.  Likewise, a believer's familiarity with the Christmas story might also breed indifference.  I pray we will never tire of hearing the old, old story one more time.
