Wisdom and Truth Minute: Day 6

Jesus is the Word
John 1

Hi, I’m Howie Campbell, and this is a Wisdom and Truth Minute.

“In the beginning, God created the Heaven and the Earth.” (Genesis 1:1). “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God… All things were made by him, and without him was not anything made that was made” (John 1, 1 and 3)The Word became flesh; the Word had power to create. The Word was God.

Therein lies the distinction between Jesus Christ and all other gods, spiritual leaders, religious constructs and “-ism”s. It turns out that Jesus, the Word of God, is God. So when Jesus says “I am the way, the truth, and the life; No one comes to the Father but by me,” (John 14:6) he’s speaking truth from a position of ultimate authority and power. If you are in Christ, you have the assurance that all the promises God made concerning you are true.

Wisdom and Truth Minute: Day 5

Friday, the Sixth Day
Genesis 1:27-28

Hi, I’m Howie Campbell, and this is a Wisdom and Truth Minute.

Who hasn’t heard the expression, “Thank God it’s Friday”? Some say it with a sigh of relief after a strenuous workweek. Others look forward to the coming weekend activities. I wonder if anyone thanks God for what he did on Friday. Do you realize that Friday is the sixth day? That means Saturday is the Sabbath rest, the seventh day. That also means Monday isn’t the first day of the week – Sunday is!

Listen to what God did on Friday, from Genesis 1:27-28: “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female he created them. And God blessed them.” Since God created and blessed us on the sixth day, I say, thank God for Friday! How about you?
