John 1:1 says “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” What is this ‘Word’? In the original Greek language of the New Testament, the word being translated as ‘Word’ is Logos, a powerful concept impossible to translate directly into any other language. Logos is the root word of Logic in modern English. It has also been translated as reason, account, meaning, cause,  and principle.


The doctrine of the Logos had been developed for centuries before Christ by the great Greek philosophers, including Heraclitus, Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, and the Stoics.  Sometimes Christians tend to forget that Jesus was not just the Savior of Israel. He is the most high God, Savior of all people, available to all who call upon His name. While the Greeks did not have access to the revelation and Scriptures of God’s chosen people Israel, they did have a passionate desire for Truth. Their search for truth led them to their (merely intellectual) conception of Logos, the Source of all Truth.


In John 1:14 we are told, “And the Logos became flesh and dwelt among us.” In other words, this source of Truth the Greeks had been seeking for centuries had manifested in the physical world as a human being. Much like most of the Jews who could not recognize their Messiah foretold in their own scriptures, many of the Greeks did not recognize Jesus as the Logos made flesh. However some did. Both Jews and Greeks. The Gospel spread like wildfire,  with many early Christians sacrificing their lives as martyrs for the sake of the Gospel.


And now here we are, two thousand years later, and Jesus has still gone unrecognized by most of the world. Jesus wants a relationship with each and every one of us. He came to “seek and save the lost” (Luke 19:9). That’s right, God is seeking you and me! Whether you think your life is too messed up for God to fix, whether you think your mind is too logically inclined to believe in God, or whether you just feel lost and don’t know where to turn, Jesus came for YOU.


I am convinced that all who seek for truth diligently and unwaveringly will end at Jesus Christ.


“Ask and it will be given, seek and you will find, knock and it will be opened. For everyone who asks, receives. The one who seeks, finds. To the one who knocks, it will be opened.” - Matt 7:7,8
