This morning I read in the Word of God:
In the beginning the Word already existed. He was with God, and He was God. John 1:1 (NLT)
I stopped.right.there, although I was supposed to read through 18 verses of John 1 this first verse sent my mind into a whirlwind of thought. The Word was before the beginning. The Word was already in the beginning before there was a beginning. The spoken Word, the written Word, the living Word. “Word” is defined by the Free Dictionary at freedictionary.com as
A sound or a combination of sounds, or its representation in writing or printing, that symbolizes and communicates a meaning.
