John 1:1 (NASB) In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Once again, I was reminded how important words are. While trying to back up a rather large delivery truck, I knew something was wrong. My partner had stood at the back of the truck to guide me into the dock, but what he wasn't looking at was the top of the truck. Today's verse shares that in the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. Sounds kind of confusing, but the truth is that Jesus Christ is the Word - the most important Word in the Bible. I began to read the letters on the front of the truck trailer, it read 11'6" which meant that the truck height was 11 feet 6 inches in total height. As I backed up, I stopped suddenly and remembered the words 11'3" written on a sign at the driveway to the loading dock. How important those words were. I kept me from doing a lot of damage. Remember the Word can do a lot of damage to our walk in this life; it can mean the difference between life and eternal death. A great place to start is at the beginning with Jesus, the Word, and get to know Him before you run into something else.
