John 1:14

John 1:14  So the Word became human and made His home among us. He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness. And we have seen His glory, the glory of the Father’s one and only Son.

Col 1:15  Christ is the visible image of the invisible God. He existed before anything was created and is supreme over all creation, :16  for through Him God created everything in the heavenly realms and on earth. He made the things we can see and the things we can’t see—such as thrones, kingdoms, rulers, and authorities in the unseen world. Everything was created through Him and for Him. :17  He existed before anything else, and He holds all creation together. :18 Christ is also the head of the church, which is His body. He is the beginning, supreme over all who rise from the dead. So He is first in everything. :19  For God in all His fullness was pleased to live in Christ, :20  and through Him God reconciled everything to Himself. He made peace with everything in heaven and on earth by means of Christ’s blood on the cross.

The Lord Jesus is the Word, but He has other names also, names that beautifully describe His character:

1Cor 1:30  God has united you with Christ Jesus. For our benefit God made Him to be wisdom itself. Christ made us right with God; He made us pure and holy, and He freed us from sin.

Now see what Wisdom has to say about you:

Pro 8:12  “I, Wisdom, live together with good judgment. I know where to discover knowledge and discernment.

Pro 8:13  All who fear the LORD will hate evil. Therefore, I hate pride and arrogance, corruption and perverse speech.

Pro 8:14  Common sense and success belong to me. Insight and strength are mine.

Pro 8:15  Because of me, kings reign, and rulers make just decrees.

Pro 8:16  Rulers lead with my help, and nobles make righteous judgments.

Pro 8:17  “I love all who love me. Those who search will surely find me.

Pro 8:18  I have riches and honor, as well as enduring wealth and justice.

Pro 8:19  My gifts are better than gold, even the purest gold, my wages better than sterling silver!

Pro 8:20  I walk in righteousness, in paths of justice.

Pro 8:21  Those who love me inherit wealth. I will fill their treasuries.

Pro 8:22  “The LORD formed me from the beginning, before He created anything else.

Pro 8:23  I was appointed in ages past, at the very first, before the earth began.

Pro 8:24  I was born before the oceans were created, before the springs bubbled forth their waters.

Pro 8:25  Before the mountains were formed, before the hills, I was born—

Pro 8:26  before He had made the earth and fields and the first handfuls of soil.

Pro 8:27  I was there when He established the heavens, when He drew the horizon on the oceans.

Pro 8:28  I was there when He set the clouds above, when He established springs deep in the earth.

Pro 8:29  I was there when He set the limits of the seas, so they would not spread beyond their boundaries. And when He marked off the earth’s foundations,

Pro 8:30  I was the architect at His side. I was His constant delight, rejoicing always in His presence.

Pro 8:31  And how happy I was with the world He created; how I rejoiced with the human family!

Pro 8:32  “And so, my children, listen to me, for all who follow my ways are joyful.

Pro 8:33  Listen to my instruction and be wise. Don’t ignore it.

Pro 8:34  Joyful are those who listen to me, watching for me daily at my gates, waiting for me outside my home!

Pro 8:35  For whoever finds me finds life and receives favor from the LORD.

Pro 8:36  But those who miss me injure themselves. All who hate me love death.”

See verse 31 – He rejoiced and was glad when the human race was being made – that was long before we walked on the earth! And even the, He knew already that one day He would have to come down and suffer a horrible death to redeem us, and still, He rejoiced and was glad!

You are somebody special in His eyes. He knew the terrible price He would have to pay, and He did it anyway.

Isa 53:3  He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.

Isa 53:4  Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.

Isa 53:5  But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

He would do it again if He had to! He loves YOU! Oh how He loves You!!!!

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

John 3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
