God's Last Word

We who have admitted Jesus Christ into our lives as Savior and Lord are happy indeed that we did so. In matters of health care, we are familiar with the custom of a "second opinion." If I go to a doctor and he or she advises me to have surgery, I can leave that office and consult with another specialist about my condition. Concerning our decision to receive Jesus Christ, we surely would have been ill-advised to go out and try to get a second opinion! Jesus Christ is God’s last word to us. There is no other. God has headed up all of our help and forgiveness and blessing in the person of Jesus Christ, the Son.

In our dark day, God has given us Jesus as the Light of the world. Those who refuse Him give themselves over to the outer darkness that will prevail throughout the eternal ages.

We may not like what the Great Physician tells us about ourselves and our sin. But where else can we go? Peter supplied the answer to that question. "'Lord,' he said, 'to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. We believe and know that you are the Holy One of God.'"

This is the Savior whom God is offering. He is the eternal Son, equal to the Father in His Godhead, co-eternal and of one substance with the Father.

He is speaking. We should listen!

Verse

The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:14

Thought

In our desire for friendship intimacy with Christ we must take care not to overlook who He is — the eternal Son, equal to the Father in His Godhead, co-eternal and of one substance with the Father. He is our friend, our shepherd, our master but He is also God!

Prayer

How is it that You the Eternal God died and rose again for me? And You speak to me? I can't fathom it but I thank You and set my heart to listen to You.
