Dr. Hamlin’s Reflection for Sunday, Jan. 31, 2016

Weekly Calendar

 The opening two verses of the Book of Hebrews reveals a profound statement:  “In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom also he made the universe.”

 To understand the fullness of these verses, one has to be passionately in love with Jesus!  Throughout the annals of history, God has not stopped speaking to humanity.  Through the prophets, through priests and kings, through judges and ordinary people, through signs and wonders, through the spoken Word and prose God has not stopped speaking to humanity.  Yet, when God needed to speak in a more profound way, through a more personable messenger, God spoke to us by God’s Son, Jesus.

 John’s Gospel opens with a similar profound statement:  “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth (John 1.1, 14).”
