Ever lied? Exaggerated? Made a promise you didn’t keep?
The proverb says: “A person is only as good as their word.”
Why? Because our words are an extension of our nature. They are two sides of the same coin. You learn who I am by how I speak.
When I lie, gossip, slander and spin, it tells you who I am.
When I make a promise and don’t keep it, it tells you what I’m like.
When I say something and do another, It tells you about my character.
So when Jesus is described as the living word (John 1:1,14), it is he who tells us who God is. Jesus is God’s word in the flesh. Everything Jesus said and did expressed God’s will and purpose. While prophets spoke the words of God, Jesus came as The Word of God. The words and deeds of Jesus are God’s message to us.
That means when we ponder on the culmination of Jesus’ life this Easter, we hear God’s greatest conversation. Before and after every word that has ever been spoken; any guidance ever been given; every prophetic dream; every revelation from heaven, it’s the person of Jesus that becomes God’s greatest word. His compassion and kindness as he healed the sick. His provision as he multiplied the bread and loaves. His sacrificial and unconditional love demonstrated by hanging broken on the cross. The living word spoken for us. The ultimate conversation.
In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son (Hebrews 1:1-2a)
How are you celebrating God’s ultimate conversation this Easter? Our prayer here at God Conversations is that you may hear the fullness of God’s message to you through his son Jesus!
