Lord as Logos

Happy Resurrection Day!!!
It's hard to believe that Jesus, the man-God, rose from the dead on this day. (Well, not literally on this day, but that's beside the point). I'm so glad He did not stay dead!

What's also amazing about Christ is that He is called the Word (logos). John says this about Him: "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." (John 1:1-2). This is probably the reason why words have such an important meaning to day. Words build people up, tear them down, exalt God, and do so many other things. Through words, life is created. God created the earth by speaking it into existence, not by thinking about it, forming it, or any other way. When He did that, He gave words, both spoken and written, their importance. So then, shouldn't we use words of all kinds to proclaim His goodness and greatness?
