Good morning.


"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind."

(John 1:1‭-‬2‭, ‬4)


It is not by chance that John begins his gospel in this fashion. He wanted his audience to see and understand the importance of the Word. Jesus underscores this when He says, "It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’ ”

(Matthew 4:4)


By the time Jesus gave the discourse on abiding in the Vine and His followers being the branches, they understood what He meant when He said, "You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you."

(John 15:3) The implication of these words was that they had already gone through the pruning process.


It is noteworthy that the New Testament writers were well versed in the Old Testament and saw the importance of the Word for Christian living. What was true then, is still true today.


The more we immerse ourselves in the Word and prayer, the more fruitful we will be.


Have lovely day.


Blessings.

Mike and Daphne
