As God, Christ is Also the Logos

What a wonderful name for Christ! This one-minute devotion explains.

Besides proving Christ's deity, John 1 describes Christ as the Word (Logos). 

Revelation 19:11-13 uses this name for Christ at His second coming: 
“I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and wages war. His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself. He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God.” 

Our finite minds cannot fully grasp the concept of Christ as the Word (1 Corinthians 13:12), but we know Jesus fully expresses God: 

“In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom also he made the universe. The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven” (Hebrews 1:1-3).

The word logos is sometimes used for the written Word of God (e.g., Hebrews 4:12), but John 1:1-18 uses it to describe the Lord Jesus Christ, our preexistent Creator God who brings life and light to mankind.

Please read The Message or the Messenger for further understanding of Christ as the Word. And I also think you'll enjoy Jesus in the Old Testament.

If you own Wisdom for Life, I encourage you to read or re-read Day 28 for further insights. If you'd like to know why you sometimes see these little blue boxes about Wisdom for Life devotions, I explain HERE.
