When I read the miracles of Jesus, I am amazed by His power. Just think
about it-He could heal a person with a touch or just a word. At His word,
the seas calmed, and Lazarus threw his grave clothes to the ground and
walked out of his tomb. The works of Jesus often proceeded or were initiated
from his words. They were congruent. For some people, actions speak louder
than words, but in the case of Jesus, they both speak loud and clear.
In John 1:1, the apostle John used "the Word" to speak of Jesus in his
pre-existent state. He wrote, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word
was with God, and the Word was God." Jesus is God's final word to mankind.
There has never been a time when "the Word wasn't and when He wasn't with
God or when He wasn't God.
But there was a time when He wasn't in the form of man. A few verses
down in John 1:14, John wrote, "And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among
us, and we beheld His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father,
full of grace and truth."
I suppose that is the greatest miracle of all-that God would become
man so He could save us from our sins. He did not make a brief visitation.
He dwelt among us.
Later John would write "What was from the beginning, what we have heard,
what we have seen with our eyes, what we beheld and our hands handled,
concerning the Word of Life" (1 John 1:1 ) He dwelt with us and those alive
at the time saw Him, heard Him and touched Him.
