John 1:1-14 (NIV)
The Word Became Flesh
1 In the beginning, was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him, nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. 6 There was a man sent from God whose name was John. 7 He came as a witness to testify concerning that light so that through him all might believe. 8 He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light. 9 The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. 10 He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. 11 He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. 12 Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— 13 children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God. 14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
Christ the Creator
According to this passage, what/who else is Jesus besides ‘creator’?
Jesus, I worship you, the unique Word of God. I pray today for a fresh revelation of who you are and a deeper understanding of what it means to be a child of God. Your light shines in the darkness of this world. Light is stronger than darkness. Please let your light shine in me. Allow Your light to shine through my life so that all I encounter can see, believe and become children of God. Glory and praise to You, God of Creation who was, who is and who is to come, God of truth, mercy, and grace. Amen
