Jesus Is The Preexistent Word

Read John 1: 1-3


Jesus Is The Constant Word. “In the beginning was the Word.” He has always existed! He didn't come into being in Bethlehem. He has been here throughout all the endless ages of eternities past. He always has been! He is the unchanging Word of God! He is “the same yesterday and today and forever” (Heb. 13:8). That is why Christians can depend on Him. He will never fail us nor leave us (Heb. 13:5).

Jesus Is The Communing Word. "The Word was with God." He was in the presence of God as a distinct Person. This talks about the reality of the Trinity. Jesus is God, yet He is a unique being. He was there when God made man in His image (Gen. 1:26). He was there when the plan to redeem the world was formulated (Rev. 13:8; Eph. 1:4; Titus 1:2; 1 Pet. 1:19-20).

Jesus Is The Controversial Word. “The Word was God”. When Jesus came preaching repentance, men thought He was strange (Mark 1:15). When He began to heal and perform miracles, men thought He was a prophet sent by God (John 3:2). When He spoke the Word of God with power, men thought He was amazing (Luke 4:36). But, when He claimed equality with God, men thought He was crazy (John 19:7). He stopped being a blessing and became a controversy when He claimed to be God (John 14:9).

Jesus Is The Creative Word. “Through Him all things were made; without Him nothing was made that has been made.” He was the energy behind the creation of the universe. He spoke and it was! “For in Him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through Him and for Him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together” (Col. 1:16-17).


Jesus Is The Pre-Existent Word Of God. He has always been and He always will be! No matter where we wind up, or what we have to face as we travel through this world, we can rest assured that the pre-existent One is, and always will be, there for us. He is the pre-existent Word of the Living God!
