DAILY?READINGS: Exodus 14:5-31; Psalms 49-50; Acts 7:30 to 8:4

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. John 1:1
The Word was made flesh and dwelt amongst us. John 1:14

These sublime words take us back into a timeless, dateless past. It establishes the eternality, equality, and deity of the Son of God. The Word becoming flesh is an amazing mystery and Paul was caught up in the wonder of it. “Great is the mystery of godliness; God was manifest in the flesh” (1 Tim. 3:16). There is nothing that will consecrate the believer to yield to this blessed person than the realization of the majesty, glory, and power of Him whom they have trusted. —Jim Paul

Thou art the everlasting Word, the Father’s only Son;
God manifestly seen and heard, and heaven’s beloved One.
Worthy O Lamb of God art Thou, that every knee to Thee should bow.
—Josiah Conder
