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
It’s interesting that Jesus is called the Word, which is a fairly abstract concept. How many people today are referred to as books?
When we feel distant from God, all we have to do is open the Bible and ask the Holy Spirit to guide us.
Previous societies did not have books handy. Many people could not read. It was harder for them to get to know Jesus, but they still could through words and communication.
Words connect us. They are a gift. Communication doesn’t always come easily, but it is essential to maintaining our relationships. When we open the Word and pray, we foster a good relationship with God. Amen.
