In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. All things were created through him, and apart from him not one thing was created that has been created. (John 1:1-2)
Pastor John’s Notes:
Jesus is the Word, that is, he is the truth of God offered to us in a way that we can understand. Jesus was with God before creation. He was an acting agent in creation. Being born into the human family, Jesus is the eternal God written into human history. Jesus is the Creator, and so he is not unfamiliar with us or oblivious to our circumstances but knows everything about us. He is our God and loves us more than we can ever know.
Lord Jesus Christ, you are both my creator and my redeemer. Therefore, I am indebted to you doubly. I am happy to surrender my life to you. Be glorified in all of my life.
