In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God… The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. (John 1:1, 14)
We know the purpose of Jesus’ death. I’ve been thinking about His life—what was the point of those three years, walking and talking with a small group of friends? What was He trying to tell us?
Is it possible He really wasn’t telling so much as showing? What if those three years were a demonstration of how He intended things to operate? What if the story Jesus came to tell wasn’t expressed in words but in logos, the Word made flesh?
What if Jesus is God’s instruction manual?
What if God’s pointing straight at His Son with a sign that says, “Do it just like He did”?
For two thousand years, people have been drawn to Jesus’ story. What if that’s what we’re supposed to do—live a remarkable story of sacrificial love and service that people can’t resist?
What if it’s really that simple?
