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. (Colossians 1:18)
The Only-begotten Son of God is also the firstborn son of Mary (who incidentally was a virgin at the time of His birth) and is the firstborn from the dead! Before the creation song sounded forth, the Son of God was there! As the voice of God hearkened and beckoned forth everything from ants to anteaters, pelicans to petunias, the Word of God rang through the dales. After the proclamation of God’s design was made known to a young girl, the Word of God became flesh and was born into our world. Sinful men could not abide the Words of love they were hearing so they silenced Him. But the Word of God will not be silenced – from the grave once again rang the voice of our Creator. A voice that sings out to this day in His churches!
Word of God, speak! Amen!
