Living By Faith

IT IS COMFORTING to know that in my life I have tried to walk with God. Along with the prophet Jeremiah, there is a fundamental fact of life that has guided me. It is this:

The Word Became Flesh

IN THE BEGINNING was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it (John 1:1–5).
