One of my favorite Lenten Devotionals is A Violent Grace by Michael Card. He’s a Christian musician that is exceptionally gifted at writing lyrics. This particular book is full of great devotions that help me focus on the sacrifice that Jesus made to bring me life.
One of my favorite quotes from the book comes when he is exploring John 14:6 where Jesus professes to be “the way, the truth, and the life.” Here’s what Michael writes:
The Incarnation changes everything. The way is not just a set of directions or a collection of wisdom—it is a person. The truth is no longer just the correct doctrine or an airtight piece of evidence—it is a person. The life is no longer just a biological fact—it is a person.
Think about that. The way, the truth, and the life is a person. Not just nice things to know, a checklist to follow, or words to say, but a person.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. … And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:1, 14
Where is God? He was born and lived among us. The Word became flesh and made His dwelling in our midst. And while the physical manifestation of the Word is no longer among us, Jesus is still here. We can interact with Him everyday through the Bible. The Word that became flesh lives among us
If you aren’t sure where God is, look for Him in His Word. He tells us that we “will seek [Him] and find [Him], when you seek [Him] with all your heart.” (Jeremiah 29:13) When you find yourself asking that question—where is God?—look for Him in the Scriptures with all your heart and you will find Him.
