Read John 1:1-5
Points to Ponder:
In these sections of John, “the Word” = Jesus. What amazing things does John tell us that the Word is and does? Which is your favorite?
Words communicate things to us and other people. What does Jesus communicate to us about God? About who God is? About what God is like?
Light gives life. Think about how the light of the sun gives life to plants. Think about how the light of the sun affects us as well. Consider at this time of year that some people get SADD because the sun is hidden behind the clouds. How does Jesus, the Light of the world, give us life?
John 1:4-5 - 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.
Lord Jesus, you are the light of the world, the light no darkness can overcome. It can be pretty dark sometimes. There is a lot of evil in this world. There is a lot of injustice. There is a lot of sin and darkness, even in my own heart. My heart broods and is tempted to grow bitter inside me. Lord Jesus, forgive me for my bitterness and give life to me. Cast out all sin and enter in. Be born in me today! Breathe life into me that I might live for you with joy and freedom. Amen.
