The Word Working In Us

The Beloved Disciple wrote in John chapter 1:

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

2 He was in the beginning with God.

3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.

4 In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.


14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.

Jesus is The Word made flesh and every Word He spoke provides us the Way, the Truth, and Life.  As we read, dwell, and meditate on His Words which establish a definite expectation, we will become like Him and also be lights in the darkness.  In chapter 14 Jesus spoke:

6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”

The Sons and Daughters desire to become mature and walk in the same manner as Our Lord Jesus Christ for Jesus Himself said:

12 “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.”

This stage of greater works is only accomplished by the continual planting of The Word in our hearts as It relates to the walk Jesus promoted and revealed to us through in the Gospels and Epistles.  In order for us to be as He is, we must place our focus on His Words and acts.  The disciples were eye witnesses and given the power and direction through The Holy Spirit to expound on The Word given to them when they wrote the Epistles.

23 Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him.”

Agape Love is the key to keeping His Word in our hearts and Jesus promised that He and FATHER would Love us and make THEIR abode in us.  What a great promise!

As we continually plant The Word in our hearts then we will produce much good fruit of Love, faith, and hope.  Let The Word prevail in us so that our light grows bright for His promise is sure and will come to pass.
