The Word (Logos) is the second Person of the Trinity who was with God in the beginning and who participated with God the Father and God the Holy Spirit in creating the heavens and earth (John 1:1-3 and Genesis1:26). Jesus, the Logos, is the full and perfect expression of God's nature, character, will and ability. Jesus is the 'first' Word from God and He has the 'last' Word from God. Mankind needs no other word about God or from God. He is God's pure word, perfect word and prophetic word. He expressed the heart of God and the thought of God.
We could even say: "He is the Logic of God." All human logic and philosophy must deal with Him. People may choose to ignore Him or dismiss His claims, but He keeps on speaking to all mankind. He is the relentless Word that will not and cannot be silenced!
In John's first letter, he refers to himself and some others as eye witnesses of the "Word (Logos) of Life" (I John 1:1-3). They were with Christ from the beginning of His ministry until they saw Him ascend back to the Father in heaven. They saw Him, heard Him and witnessed His humanity. Furthermore, they heard His words. Believing on Him, as the Word of Life, and receiving the original apostles words about Him, leads us to eternal life!
He is the Logos, He is the Life, and He is the Light of God.
Jean, Dawn and I extend our heartfelt greetings for all our friends and partners to have a blessed Christmas. His life in you is a gift to us! May each of us be impacted by Him in new ways as we celebrate His Incarnation!
END OF THE YEAR STEWARDSHIP
I always endeavor to do some planning ahead on my tax obligations. It seems each year I find it advantageous to give an end of the year offering(s) to ministries I support.
Thank you for a great year at FMCI.
Be blessed in every way,
Bro. Jim Hodges
