“In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son…”Hebrews 1:1-2a
I have loved words and writing since I was very young. But as the years march on, more and more situations arise when words somehow fall short. There are times of overwhelming joy (like when we adopted our children from birthparents who chose us) and others of profound sorrow (as we’ve stood at the graveside of a child, grandparents, or a loved one). Some circumstances are too profound for words.
While the inspired Word of God has given us all that can be written about Him, we still find it difficult to convey in words some aspects of the essence of our divine Creator. That is why God’s way of revealing Himself to us—beyond the prophets or visions or miracles—was through a person. The very Word of God has come to us in a person, Jesus Christ. Through Jesus’ birth, life and death for us, we can know the “radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being” (Hebrews 1:3).
Though we may struggle to express ourselves at times, God’s greatest expression of love to us is spoken boldly and plainly through His Son.
When words fall short, rejoice in the knowledge that “the Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us” (John 1:14).
