‘All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made’ John 1:3 (NKJV)
According to the Tanakh, Yehovah created all things through His spoken word; during the first six days of creation, Yehovah spoke everything into being. Right from the very beginning, He has been a Yehovah who communicates; He has always spoken to, and revealed His heart to His people. When He speaks, His words are loving – they bring life, they create. In the B’rit Chadashah, Yeshua is called the ‘Word’. Yeshua is the ultimate way in which Yehovah has communicated with His people. Without Yeshua, mankind would still be groping around in the dark, desperately trying to find Yehovah, but in Yeshua, Yehovah has found us. Yeshua is the Word of Yehovah, made flesh, and He too is loving; His words bring life, and create. In fact, the Bible says that Yeshua was intimately involved in the creation of everything, from the beginning of time! So when you next look at the night sky, and all the stars in their places, pause for a moment and reflect: Yeshua made that! Next time you see the sea, or climb a mountain, or take a trip across country, pause: Yeshua made that! Next time you set eyes on your family, your neighbour, spouse or child, stop and really look at them – Yeshua made them! These things are not the result of random occurrences, but are the handiwork, the masterpieces, of Yeshua Himself. You too, are created by Yeshua. Not only did He die for you, forgive you, save you and redeem you, but He also made you! Let your heart and mind dwell a while today on the incredible intimacy with which Yeshua knows you.
