Episode 651


1, In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

John 1:1

This says that God existed, and so did his Word at the very start of the world. It was with him at the start of creation. It was him, and Jesus was the Word made flesh. Now think about when you give someone your Word. What does that mean? It means that you are promising your integrity to another person. They can ensure, or they can trust in what you’re saying because you’re giving them your Word. It is the one thing that we have that holds more value than anything else. Your Word is a direct reflection of your integrity. When you say you’re going to do something and you don’t do it. You are failing at the integrity of your Word. And I hope that you don’t take that too harshly because it’s something that I struggle with. I lie. I tell my grandfather I’m going to visit you. I get busy. I don’t visit him. And in return, I’m the one, and he’s the one who ends up hurting over the situation because he’s expecting me; I didn’t meet the expectation that I set, and therefore I feel bad, and I feel that shame for not meeting the expectations that I said, that happened to me on Friday. So this is a very big thing. When you give someone your Word, they should be able to expect it. 

Now God is not like me. God is not fickle, and when He gives us His Word, he will never take it back, and he gave us a promise from day one. He promised that we can be in a relationship with Him. Remember that God used to walk in the garden with Adam. From day one. He promised us that the impossible was possible with him. He has given us many spoken promises over the years, and one day, a baby born in the Word was made flesh. And Jesus made it a way for us to have a relationship with God. He made room for miracles. Jesus was God’s promise to us. He is the image of what we strive to be for one another. And if I can take my friends and family at their Word when they promise me something, how much more can I take God his? So think about that today as you go about your day. God, it’s Word is Jesus. Jesus was the Word made flesh.


Father God, we thank You, Lord, for this beautiful Monday and this beautiful week. God, as we prepare for this Advent season as we prepare for Christmas. We just want to continue to keep you and Jesus at the center of our conversations, at the center of our hearts, and at the center of why we do the things that we do. We absolutely adore you; we love you. Thank you in advance for everything that you do on our behalf, for everything that you are moving on our behalf for all of the battles that you are fighting on our behalf. We thank you. We love you. We pray this all in your son’s Mighty Name, Amen.
