Sunday Scripture ~ John 1:1

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God.”   (John 1:1)

John begins his story about the life of Jesus on this planet by revealing to his readers what it had taken him nearly three long years to absorb:
Jesus, the man who walked dusty Palestinian roads, who ate and drank and got tired and spoke gritty truth, was more than just a teacher or a prophet. He was God in the flesh.

John wants his readers to begin with awe and then move on into the stories of what Jesus did and what he said, for the words and the deeds will support that feeling of awe. Jesus, the Word, embodied God’s message to us. He bore witness to the truth about God and he, himself, is the message from God.

This Sunday, let’s rejoice in God’s great rescue plan, and may He help us to see the glory of it and to worship in response.

Ever in awe,

  1. To be in John’s head at the time of realization would be absolutely mind blowing to realize he had walked along beside God. Can only imagine the thoughts in his head of the questions he could have asked. Did he beat himself up because he didn’t realize or catch on? When reading Jesus’ words when on Earth, I’m not sure I would have realized at the time. Such an amazing time, but also sounds to be such a troublesome time because those in control who ran things, just could not see. But then, God always has a plan. I keep reminding myself of that fact. Things happen according to his plan so guess John was not to realize at first. Have a great week. 🙂

      1. I love how God made him GET UP and GET OUT OF THE TENT. He had to change his perspective to introduce him to the Awe. And THEN Abraham believed and it was credited to him as righteousness. Isn’t God AMAZING??? Have a wonderful day!
