Promises, Promises. Sometimes they are kept, and sometimes they are broken. It really depends on the integrity of the person who makes the promise. Decades ago people didn't need legal contracts to make sure others kept their promises because a person's word was good. His name and reputation were at stake.

Today, we have to rely on legal contracts because people often make promises when it is convenient, but they fail to carry them out. Integrity isn't always the greatest.

Before the world began, the Word was there. The Word was there with God. The Word was God. John 1:1

We see God's Word, His living Word as Jesus Christ; the written Word was the Bible. The integrity of God Himself was so great that He gave His Word and the Word was good. His name and reputation were at stake. He wouldn't fail, He wouldn't lie, and He wouldn't break a promise.

Rather than allowing what we think we know about God to define how we view Jesus, let us allow what we learn about Jesus to define and redefine how we view God. If you want to know who God is and what He’s about… if you want to know what God’s purposes, His priorities, His desires, His heart, His mind, then look at Jesus. He is God with us, the Messenger of all messengers and the Message of all messages. God became flesh, and God gave us the best of Him so we can live the best for Him.
