Welcoming Jesus

welcoming jesus

 

It is the time of the year that we celebrate the birth of Jesus. We come together with friends and family in welcoming Jesus. Together, we celebrate the arrival of the promised Messiah, the Anointed One Who comes to bring peace and reconciliation between God and all who would believe and call on His name.

This advent season in our online Bible Study, His Beloved Jewels Bible Study,  we are studying the coming of Jesus and focusing  on Him alone. This advent season, we welcome Jesus into our busyness, our hectic schedules and  With so much emphasis on so many things which are fun yet ultimately have no lasting value, it is reassuring that Yahweh will honor our time in His Word. It is the great adventure, this pursuit of God.  It  is the making of what fulfills our life; where we find satisfaction.  ” And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.” (Heb 11:6, ESV)

The Word

Our founding passage which our study is based on is John 1:1 which reads,  “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” (ESV) Jesus, the Word of God, was with God before there was time, He is eternal, the Beloved Son of God..

The Word is translated from the Greek word logos…

“something said (including the thought); by impl. a topic (subject of discourse), also                   reasoning (the mental faculty) or motive; by extens. a computation; spec. (with the art.          in John) the Divine Expression (i.e. Christ):—account, cause, communication, ×                            concerning, doctrine, fame, × have to do, intent, matter, mouth, preaching, question,             reason, + reckon, remove, say (-ing), shew, × speaker, speech, talk, thing, + none of these        things move me, tidings, treatise, utterance, word, work ..” excerpted from James Strong, A Concise Dictionary of the Words in the Greek Testament and The Hebrew Bible (Bellingham, WA: Logos Bible Software, 2009), 45.

He is the Divine Expression of the Triune God.  He has never had a beginning and will never have an ending. He is our Alpha and our Omega.

Colossians 1 :15-20 states,

He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together.  And he is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent.  For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.” (ESV)
