THE WORD WAS GOD
John: 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 The same was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
Brothers, the Word was God and the Word is God from the beginning until this day. We who are born again believers in Christ Jesus know His Word to be true.
4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
We are now life, and are to bare witnesses of the light. We are to shine our light, which is of God, into and own the lost world as examples of the life eternal which is in us, and can be in them if only they will believe upon the name of Jesus.
5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.
We too are to bare witness of the light just as John was doing in his day.
8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.
9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.
Brothers, be a light in this world. Shine the light of God into the darkness of this world, and be an example both for the lost, and for your brothers in Christ Jesus.
10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
Jesus came into this world and they did not know him.
11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
His own people did not receive him or know him as their savior. They had spoke of him from the beginning, and looked constantly for the messiah, but when He came they knew him not. Not only did they not know or receive him, but they cru.ified Him and preferred that the thief and murderer should be freed and Jesus be crucified.
Brothers, there are so many in this day who do not know or receive Jesus as there Lord and Savior. It is up to us to be a witness to them in this hour. It is very late and the time of His appearing is at hand brothers. Please busy yourself about the business at hand and completing the assignment than God has given you to do.
12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
My dear friends we who have received Him are given power to become the sons of God because we believe on his name, the name of Jesus. My brothers we are born of the will of God, and not of the will of man, nor flesh, nor blood, but by the will of God.
14 And the Word was made 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.
15 John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me.
16 And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.
17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.
18 No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.
Jesus has declared God the Father. We have received God's fullness, and have received grace for grace. By grace through faith are we saved, and made the sons of God. In his light we do walk until the day of His soon appearing. Praise God!
God Bless you my brothers,
