There are two kinds of words spoken in our daily lives – kind and unkind, positive and negative, productive and nonproductive, good and evil, true and false.
Realizing we must be accountable for the deeds done in our bodies as well as the words we speak, let us take-heed to what we think and what we speak.
Jesus says in Matthew 12:36,37: “But I say unto you, that every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. For by thy words thou shall be justified (proved as being right), and by thy words thou shall be condemned (disapproved). So we see our words now reflect our destiny then .
Since we were all born into sin, with Adam’s nature, we are naturally sinners, however, we do not have to remain that way. This is the reason for John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting (forever) life. The key word here is believe. We must believe in the Word of God.
As we look at the first chapter of St. John, the first 3 verses let us know that in the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by HIM; and without HIM was not anything made that was made.
John 1 :14 says, And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld (have seen) His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father), full of grace and truth. The verse lets us know that Jesus is. the Word (the Word of God) .
We also see in the first chapter of Genesis where God spoke everything into existence. In Genesis 1:26 God said: “Let us make man in our image, and after our likeness: and let them (man) have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth.” I believe God was talking to JESUS when He said, “Let us make man in our image and after our likeness…” (someone like ourselves).
The fall of man came in the second chapter of Genesis when Adam and Eve disobeyed God’s command. In order for us to be restored back onto the right relationship with God there had to be a sacrifice (Lamb) without spot or wrinkle (sinless).
God’s Son Jesus was the only one qualified. The law
Old Testament) was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by JESUS CHRIST in the New Testament. No man has seen God at anytime, the only begotten son, which is in the bosom of the Father, HE has declared HIM (John 1:17,18).
