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

John 1:1

Words are important. After all, they are the primary way we communicate with one another. Words can be easily misconstrued if they are not carefully planned. Just think how politicians must judiciously consider what to say (and what not to say!) during a campaign in hopes of winning an election.
In ancient Greek, logos was the “word” used to represent the rational force/principle that holds the universe together. For the Jewish people, logos referred to that by which the living God communicated to mankind. Naturally, this was the name John used at the beginning of his Gospel to speak of Jesus.
So, as we read or speak or sing our words, let’s never forget that they have meaning. And when we are speaking of THE Word, always remember that Jesus is the only Word that holds all other words and phrases together. Jesus is the one Word we should never lose and always repeat. He is the eternal Word who was there in the beginning (at creation), the middle (for the Gospel), and the end (throughout all eternity).
