Most of us know Jesus is The Son of God. What most don’t understand is that He is also The Word of God.
It seems most people think only those who preach are ‘called’, but not so. We need no man teach us if we see ourselves as children of God. We have a Father and a Mother but everyone alive is a child of God, all made in His image. So we are the children, and they are the parents. We all can hear, love and obey our Father and Mother. We need no other to teach us or tell us what God has to say, we can read it all for ourselves and allow His Spirit to both lead and guide us home.
Jesus is The Word, John 1:1-5
The Word God spoke: Exodus 20:1
The Word God wrote: Deuteronomy 4:13
and The Word God made flesh John 1:14. He is our example of The Trinity.
Jesus told us that the road to follow Him would be hard. The Word goes on to say we will go through much tribulation. We must prepare to make it through that tribulation and stand in His day. Let’s not let the world overcome us and prepare for the time when they come to steal, kill, and destroy everything we have accomplished.
It is because of Jesus all things are possible. That we come to know The Father, who we are, and our goal in life. We are told we must obey God, to love Jesus, so how do we do that? That is only two things we must learn to do.
We are told to “keep” God’s commandments so we look up on how to “keep” the Ten Commandments. This is how we are to obey God. So what better way to figure it out than to follow our Perfect Example?
Jesus tells us that if we love Him to “keep” His word even as He kept His Father’s. So how did Jesus “keep” His Father’s Word? That is found in Deut. 6:8-9. So we take the Sermon on the Mount and obey our instructions in Deut..
It is up to those who know and trust in our Lord Jesus Christ to show, preach and teach others who our God is. We have to show how He protects and preserves us and our life’s work. And that requires evidence of our faith. Learn to “keep” both the law and testimony, to wear it, set your borders and protect all you love and own.
