In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. John 1:1-2 NKJV
A Christian’s life should be filled with loving relationships. The foundation of our lives should be built on relationship with Jesus Christ!
A radio bible teacher visits a friend’s house once a month. He hosts a question and answer session. Everyone is welcome to ask questions. My wife and I attended a couple of times. We decided against attending those meetings.
The teacher has different views on theological issues and doctrines than I. That is not the reason we decided not to attend. He is much smarter than I am. He has much more knowledge than I do. He knows the bible and biblical history much better than I do.
The reason we decided not to attend is that we do not leave feeling as though we have spent time with Jesus. We do not leave feeling as though we got to know Jesus better!
In these verses John is talking about Jesus. Jesus is the Word of God! The scriptures are fulfilled in the person of Jesus Christ! Jesus is the fulfilment of God’s promises!
When I go to church or a bible study I expect to leave feeling like I have spent time with Jesus. When I read my bible or pray I expect to feel as though I have spent time with Jesus. Time spent in the bible and prayer is time spent with Jesus!
God the Father, Jesus Christ the eternal Son of God and the Holy Spirit lived in a perfect loving relationship since before time began. God created us to join that perfect loving relationship!
There will be times when I do not feel like God is with me. There will be times when I go to church simply because that is what I do on Sunday. Sometimes my time spent in the scriptures will not be as fruitful as I would like. There will be times when I feel as though my prayers are going no higher than my ceiling.
We all miss the mark from time to time.
There is a God in heaven. He loves you. He wants to spend time with you. You can spend time with Him today. If you seek Jesus you will find Him. Look for Him in the pages of the bible. Jesus is the Word of God!
Pray to your heavenly Father. Read your bible. Go to a bible study during the week. Go to church on Sunday. Do it to spend time with Jesus. Do it to know Jesus better!
Your Heavenly Father loves you more than the number of the sands on the seashore and the stars in the night sky. Jesus is waiting for you to seek Him. Jesus is waiting to spend time with you. Get to know Jesus better by spending time with the Word of God every day!
