Day 23 Celebrating Immanuel
In the beginning was the WORD, and WORD was with GOD, and the WORD was God. (John 1:1)
In so many ways the trinity of God still remains somewhat of a mystery to us even today. God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Ghost. But, we know that God the Father spoke all things into existence (Genesis 1:3). And, we know that God is called the WORD (John 1:1), and we know that the WORD became flesh and dwelled among us, which is interpreted, Immanuel (John 1:14). And, we know that the Spirit of God (Holy Ghost) works in the world and in the hearts and lives of man according to God’s will and purpose (Genesis 1:2 and Acts 1:8). The blessed Trinity of God. Amen.
How wonderful it is to know that the Triune Power of God rests in the hearts of man as a result of the birth of Jesus. Jesus was and is God’s ultimate demonstration of Love, Faith, and Kindness shown towards sinful man. Without the Love of God, we would all be lost and without Hope. But, thanks be unto God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost we have an eternal HOPE that dwells among us.
My finite mind cannot fully understand God’s infinite love towards fallen man. It seems we struggle and struggle to “understand.” And, the more we try to understand the more of a true mystery it becomes. The more we understand the greater our Faith in God that while we were yet sinners God sent His Son to die for our sins. Yet; the Bible teaches us that we cannot please God without Faith…So, Faith was built into our belief system in order to Please God and to follow God with all of our heart, soul, and mind.
This morning, you may be like me and want to know as much about God as you possibly can. Yet; no man, woman, boy, or girl can or ever will know ALL that there is to know about our Blessed Savior. His Greatness is a wonder. His Love is an amazement. His Mercy and Grace are astonishing…The more you know; the more you want to know! And the best place to find out about God is in His WORD…His Holy Word; the Words of God; the only true source…The Bible. And, the WORD became flesh and dwelled among us…. Just makes a person want to snuggle up to the Bible…Oh, how Good it is! Amen.
Remember, God Loves You!
