John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
John 1:14 And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us; and we saw His glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.
We see that in John 1:1 the Word is spoken of, and in John 1:14 it is indicated that the Word was made flesh.
The Word is Christ Jesus, the Messiah, and being called the Word, it is because he is the action of God the Father. That is why we see that Jesus fulfilled all the word of God.
This makes us understand that the word of God is something active and for this reason we must live it, because by living it we are in the Word, that is, imitating Christ Jesus and this leads us to be with God, because the Word is the one who is with God, if we do not live the word we will not be in the Word and consequently we will not be with God, for this reason the Pharisees were not with God because they did not live the word of God.
