John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
The Lord who spoke the word that created all things, but us, was the Word (our Lord was the Word the Son of God) the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The Word formed us (man) with his own hand. Later the Word became man, was killed by man (through the will of God, when that same hand was pierce threw and nailed to a cross), rose from the dead to save man. The Word was man, to save man, from death. The Word became our salvation and all it takes from man to accept salvation in the words, "I believe" through faith. Where do we get the faith? from hearing the Word.
Romans 10:17King James Version (KJV)
17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
So the Word (Lord) made us, The Word became man, was killed by man, rose from the dead (over coming death) gave us the faith to believe through his word, and awaits our words "I believe" to save us and give us salvation. Yes, that is Grace, Grace is all from God, The Word gives you even the faith to believe and saves you by Grace...... so simply a child could understand right? Funny how if we don't have the faith of a child, or as a child, we over think it and never believe something this simple.
To believe is that simple, God made all, as the Word, we sinned, he gave us his son who was the Word, we killed him, God raised him, and if we believe we are given the Grace of God and that is Salvation....... Only a child would understand that, you can be God's child, believe it through Faith and Salvation is yours....... It only takes a word spoke to the Word and you become a child of God for all time...... Why is it that man makes it so much more complicated and drawn out, The Word just wants to hear the word.... tomorrow
