The Apostle John knew and followed Jesus as one of His disciples and friends. He saw Jesus perform miraculous healings, casting out demons, healing the sick and raising the dead. He heard God speak and proclaim that Jesus was His son. John watched Jesus be crucified and die and also saw Him, heard Him, touched Him, and ate with Him, after He rose from the dead and showed himself to the believers for 40 days before watching Jesus ascend into heaven. This is why John began his gospel account of Jesus life with the startling and powerful assertion that Jesus is God our Creator, who came into the world and revealed Himself as a man.
John 1:1- 5 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.
9 – 18 That was the true Light which gives light to every man coming into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him. But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
Think about the depth of truth in this verse… In the beginning (the time and space of human reality) there was Jesus (the word) He (Jesus) was with God and was God!! He was there at the beginning of all human experience. He created our universe, and He created our environment, and He created us, with all other life.
In Him (Jesus) was life … Jesus is the source of our life, without Him we have no life; this life is the light of men . His life is the light (revelation) that the darkness (sinful man) needs so desperately to understand.
Jesus as (God) was and is our Creator.
Think about the significance of this to all men and women in our world our families, our friends, our children.
There are no religions, no philosophies, no “scientific discoveries” no life styles, no political or social viewpoints that reveal the mystery and reality of life, apart from the one true source of all life which is Jesus Christ our Creator and Savior the one true living God. There are no paths to God apart from Jesus. There is no meaning to life apart from Jesus. What a precious gift we have in in Him!
In this Holy Christmas Season may we remember the reality of who Jesus is!
Blessings and Love to you all… Vince
