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.
