Answer the following question out loud: “What is God like?”
In today’s devotional verse, we read:
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
The “Word” John writes about is three things:
- A distinct personality who is God’s companion;
- God himself.
Later in John 1, we discover that this “Word” also “became flesh and dwelt among us…the one and only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth” (John 1:14).
This Word is none other than Jesus himself. But isn’t that a funny way to introduce Jesus, as the “Word”?
Why would God be described this way?
