Jesus our Creator II
The apostle John in introducing his gospel by proclaiming the Deity of Jesus exalted Jesus Christ as our God ,our Creator and our Savior, who came and offered us the “right” (power and privilege) to receive Him and to become “children of God“.
John 1: 9 – 18 That was the true Light (Jesus) 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.
Those of us who are believers who are “born of God” because we have “received” Jesus,we should realize during this Christmas season, that the only gift of true value that we have is that which we have received from Him. The precious gift that He offered us when He came to His own (creation) to extend to us the “right” to become children of God. May God grant that as His children we will shine with the “light” of our Creators glory, grace and truth during this time and always.
Love and Blessings in Jesus Creator and Savior
