Today's Verse : John 1:2-3


January 2, 2012

He [the Word, Jesus] was with God in the beginning. Through him
all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been
-- John 1:2-3

Jesus was there. He was with God in the beginning. But he was
more than just a witness of Creation; he created it! Jesus, who
allowed himself to be limited to human flesh and to die a cruel and
agonizing death on the Cross, was there at the beginning as the
Word speaking our world into existence. He made it. It is his. Yet
he came and died to redeem it. More specifically, he came to redeem
you and me. So when the Word speaks to us telling us how to live to
please God, don't you think we'd better pay attention? Better yet,
don't you think we ought to do it?

Holy Father, your plan to save me overwhelms and humbles me.
That you would send Jesus, the Word who created the world that I
know, is more wonderful than I can fully grasp. That he would allow
himself to be limited to the world he had made boggles my
imagination. That he would die for me so that I can live with you
captures my heart! Please help me as I seek to live my life based
on his teachings and your will. In the name of Jesus, the Living
Word, I pray. Amen.
