Words are important to us. We want to know a child’s first word and a person’s last words. Sometimes we want the final word. Other times we wait for word on someone’s arrival. Jesus Christ is the living Word of God. He is God’s Word in the flesh. He brings us the good news of God’s plan to forgive and restore rebellious, self centered and sinful people. Jesus is the final Word, the Word about God with us, God for us. Pay attention to the Word.
