Jesus Messiah

There is no more thorough, compelling rendering of the breadth of the beauty of Jesus, than that found in John’s first chapter. So comprehensive is this passage… painting Jesus in the most vivid colors:

He is from the beginning, Eternal
He is the Word
He is God
He made everything that is
Life is in Him
That life is the light of men
Darkness cannot put it out
Jesus was coming into the world that He made
His own people did not know their Maker
Those who DID believe were GIVEN the right
to become His children, born of the will of God
Jesus is credited for the possibility of and the ability to be saved
Jesus, the Word, dwelt with us
We have seen His glory
He is full of grace and full of truth
From that fulness we have received GRACE UPON GRACE
Grace and truth came through Jesus
Jesus, Himself God, made God known to us
He is the Lamb of God who takes away the world’s sin
He was baptized by The Holy Spirit
He is the Son of God
He is Messiah
He is King of Israel
He is the Son of Man

This Christmas, my heart overflows with thanksgiving for Immanuel. That He would come to save, come to reveal, come to reconcile repentant sons and daughters to Himself is more than my mind can grab hold of. While my mind fails to understand, my heart is alive, full of awe and adoration for the Savior of the world.

This Christmas I pray He’d be honored… lifted up as He ought to be, as He deserves to be. I pray I would reflect a woman having received grace upon grace, by giving grace upon grace to my people. I pray I would express to Him the treasure He is… that there is no thing, no one, no pursuit worthy to compare to Him.

Riches I heed not nor man’s empty praise
Thou my inheritance, now and always
Thou and Thou only, You’re first in my heart
High King of Heaven my treasure Thou art
Heart of my own heart whatever befall
Still be my vision oh Ruler of all
(Mary Elizabeth Byrne; Eleanor H. Hull)
