A “word” is a written or verbal expression of an idea that creates images in the minds of those that hear it. We use words to communicate with each other and share our ideas, feelings, thoughts, and intentions. Jesus is called the living Word because He is the expression of God, the communication of His thoughts, feelings, and intentions. A perfect representation of the Father’s mind toward us. Only through eating the bread from Heaven, The Word of Life, the written word, is the image of God restored to humanity.
We are blessed in this generation to have the written word recorded and put into many easily accessible formats. The Greek word translated as “Word” in John 1:14 is “logos.” Logos is more than just the written word. It is the divine expression of God Himself, the communication of His nature and will. Above all other things expressed by words, the truth has the creative power to change the very nature of things exposed to it.
Everything in creation is subject to the truth of God’s word, and everything in creation must eventually align with that word or bow to it. We have yet to grasp the reality of just how powerful and significant the written word is.
The Word was spoken, (Rhema) so it could be written. (Logos) I was written so it could be continually spoken.
Jesus is the Word of God made flesh. The written word expresses God’s nature, will, thoughts, and desires for humanity. As our Creator, we should be very concerned about learning what He wants and how He thinks. We should hunger and thirst for ways to please Him.
The written word is here to test us, just like the manna from Heaven tested Israel to see if they would walk in obedience. God sees how much we love and respect His written word and how important His thoughts and desires are to us. Our relationship and perspective on the written word reveal how much we love and believe in Him. They are the same. Our love for God will never rise above our love for the Bible and all its precious treasures. It is the only book that is truly alive!
Hebrews 4:12(NKJV) For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
