John 1:1-In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
The Word has always existed, we had not yet been born to know God, or know the Word. God created the world so that we would have somewhere to be born, and to learn about Him. Had God not created the world, there would be no place for us to live. God has always been, and He will always be even after this world has passed away. His Word will always stand forever.
John 1:2-The same was in the beginning with God.
This verse takes me back to Genesis 1:1. In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. All things in this world was created by God, if it were not for God, nothing would have been made. Life would never have been created. God has power to speak things into being; HE spoke and it was. This explination resonates through verses 3-4.
John 1:4-In Him was life; and the life was the light of men.
Verse 4. All life is in God. HE is the ultimate light in all life. He is the light that shines in all men and women. It is His light that produces the love; His love that He wants all people to see. We are to be the lights that give hope to a lost and dieing world that does not know Jesus. Jesus is the light of the world, and in Him there is no darkness at all. Once we lived in darkness doing the deeds of the Devil, but now that we live in the light, and for the light, we no longer have to live for darkness, or live in darkness because the light who is Jesus Christ lives and shines in us.
Living in the darkness brings up strief, lust, false accusations, jealousy, envy, hate, murder, and all the things that are not of God, but of evil. When someone lives in darkness, their heart and soul is in darkness and they cannot comprehend nor see the light. The person doesn’t know how to live in love because it is not there. They cannot do something that they were not taught, and they cannot give what they don’t have. They listen to rubbish that is fed to them from those that are living in darkness themselves, so that is all they know. A person that calls themselves a Christian should know better than to listen to such things that are not of God. God is truth, and the Holy Spirit is truth, and Jesus is truth.
The Holy Spirit will lead and guide us into all truth. He will teach us the ways of God. He is there to comfort us when we lose someone we love, He is there to help us understand things that we don’t understand. There are times when God is silent and we don’t feel the presence of the Holy Spirit. We become uneasy, nervous, and afraid. It is in theses times that God wants us to pray evenmore, and trust Him eventhough we may not sometimes feel His presence.
We must know that God will never forsake us. He is always with us leading and guiding us, protecting us from danger , and harm. He is always watching over us through every storm of life that we go through. He is forever speaking to us through His Word, to our spirit with His still small voice. The love that God has for us will never fail.Human love does not always last, because human life and love isn’t forever. Humans hurt one another on a daily basis. He’ll never stop loving us because that is who He is.
It would take a lifetime for us to learn how to love like that. I feel that it hurts God’s heart because we do not know how to really and truly and genuinely love someone as He wants us to.
My Prayer: Dear Father in Heaven, Please help us to remain in the light of Your love. Help us to look to You for guidance and instructions concerning our lives. Please help us to know You more, and how to love one another as You have always loved us. Help us O, Lord, to seek Your face in all things from this time forth even until forevermore. All praise, glory, and honor, and thanksgiving belongs to You O, God, We love You. In Jesus name I pray and ask all of these things, Amen.
Continued Scripture from John:
John 17:3-Now this is eternal life: that they know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, to whom You have sent.
John 10:10-The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life,and have it to the full.
John 20:30-31-Jesus performed many other signs in the presence of His disciples, which are not recorded in this book. But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in His name.
Don’t forgt to spend some time with Jesus, He is waiting for you.
