Name of God

THE WORD

The Word is Power – In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not anything made that was made (John1). YWHW, spoke The Word and brought forth the glorious wonders of all creation. It is through faith that we understand that the universe was created by the Word of God (Heb11).

The Word is Life – Psalm 33 confirms that by the Word of the LORD the heavens were made, and by the breath of his mouth all their host. In him was life, and the life was the light of men… and the Word became flesh and dwelt among us. (John1). ‘Light and life to all he brings’ will be sung many times at this time of year but how many recognise that life? Isaiah proclaimed, ‘those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness, on them has light shone’, but how many close their eyes to that light?

The Word is Truth – In him you also, when you heard the Word of Truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit (Eph1). Those who have heard and believed the Word are called to share that truth by becoming sowers of the Word. By sowing the seed of the Word of God you are sowing the life of the Lord into the lives of others.

Jesus said, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free” (John8).

Pray that the truth of The Word will penetrate every heart that hears it and that each person would open their eyes to the Light that has come and to the Life they can receive.
