Words that Breathe…Gospel of John

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through Him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.” (John 1:1-3).

God the Father, God the Son, and God the Spirit – as a community- breathed life into all things way back at Creation. Jesus is the Living Word: He continues to breathe life into those that surrender their lives to Him. This month we begin “Words that Breathe” – a 3 month journey in the Gospel of John. Just as God breathed life into Adam, Jesus breathed life into His Disciples in John chapter 20:21-22. 

‘Peace to you! As the Father sent me, I also send you.’ And when He had said this, He breathed on them and said, ‘Receive the Holy Spirit’ (John 20:21-22, NKJV)

During Jesus’ 3 years of ministry, He brought the Living Word to large numbers of people: rich, poor, Jew, Gentile, men, women, religious, irreligious, and the list goes on. His words and actions transformed lived then and they transform lives now. Transformation takes place because through the Holy Spirit, God breathes life into those that place their trust in Christ, the Living Word.
 When we consider the millions of books, blogs, articles, letters, instruction manuals, and other sources of words in this world, it is important to understand that only one book, out of millions, is a living, breathing, testament of God’s love for mankind. As the wind of the Holy Spirit blows through and among us, let us experience a fresh and challenge way…words that breathe!
