THE UNRECOGNIZED WORD

“The Word was in the world, and though God made the world through him, yet the world did not receive him”.

Jn 1:10 GNB

It is difficult for us, coming two thousand years after Christ, to imagine a time or a world, into which he had not yet come. John the apostle, thinking deeply about it all some decades after Christ, understood the world before Christ. The Word was part of it – the thinking of God, his self-expression and self-revelation. The Word was involved in the creation of the world. Some people “sensed” God. They saw him in the nature round about them, the sun, moon and stars that reflected his presence. So did the order by which the earth functioned – the revolving of the seasons, the rain that watered the earth, and the provision of food. So some people dimly groped after God, but the Word was not open, full and clearly the God-that-became-flesh that was still to happen in the incarnation of Jesus Christ, God’s only Son. But the world did not know his saving grace. Nor did they know their need of him. People, by thinking and observing, were able to see something of God’s working. They knew the world was his. They could see that, in his sovereignty, God had power in the ordering of some of the historical movements that took place.

But it needed more for them to know the sufficiency of his grace, the manifestation of his kingdom and his conflict with and conquest over, the principalities and powers of evil. Only God’s full self- revelation when the Word took flesh would reveal him in his fullness. The dawn was about to break and a new world was about to be born.
