And the Word was made flesh…

Article written by Brother Bledsoe

And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, full of grace and truth.

John 1:14

The life of Jesus is typical and yet unlike any other

He grew up in the home of a carpenter and was probably taught the trade and learned to work with His hands. He was on this earth less than half of what I have now been. His ministry spanned a total of about three years. Less than 1/16 of mine. Yet, He accomplished something more than me and all the others called into God’s service put together.

Not a one of us can save a soul…

But we can lead sinners to the One who can, Jesus Christ. If the blood of every believer, apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor and teacher of the Word who has ever lived was collected, all of it combined could not wash away even one sin of one person. But one drop of His blood has and will eradicate the sins of every man, woman and child who has lived and who will confess their sins and believe on Him.

John wrote in 1 John 2:2 (GW):

“He is the payment for our sins, and not only for our sins, but also for the sins of the whole world.”

Paul wrote in 2 Corinthians 5:21 (KJV):

“For he has made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.”

Jesus Christ is the unique God/man

We may not understand that but we will find it to be true if we will but read the Bible. We will find the short span of time from Jesus’ baptism to His ascension to be remarkable. Let’s see if we can take this journey together. We will all be richer by doing so.

Have a blessed day.

Maybe Take A Closer Look

God knows our heart therefore we might as well be honest with Him.  If we have not received answers to our prayers, perhaps we need to take a close look at ourselves.  We know that God still answers prayer—that is not debatable.  We know that He still performs miracles and that is not debatable.  We know that some people still get through all of the “stuff” of this life to get to God for the miracles that they need.

Born Again

When Jesus told Nicodemus that he must be born again it was beyond the man to comprehend even as it is to modern man. Nicodemus would later come to understand and would become a follower of Christ. If you don’t know Christ in the full pardon of your sins; just watch those who truly believe.

Building On Rock

People today believe the concept of individual autonomy. Truth has been relegated to “whatever is true for me is true.” Because the possibility of absolute truth has been widely rejected, people now depend on “personal truth.” But we can’t make up for the loss of absolute truth by creating our own truth. We are simply wrong too often.
