Thursday Thought: Christ is the Word

When we speak of our Savior and call him the Son of God, let it be clear that Christ is not, in any way, a created being.  

This truth is reflected in his name, The Word.  With this title, the Bible declares that the Son of God embodies the deepest thoughts of God, the sum & substance of his eternal ideas and plans, and God's message to mankind.  All the heart of God is personified in the Son, and in him God is revealed to us.  

Jesus Christ is the Word.  If we want to know what the thoughts and plans of God are – particularly his thoughts about us & our final fate – we must go to the Son.  Whatever we find in the Son is God's true will; whatever is not found in the Son is false, no matter how plausible it may seem to our reason.
