Day 15

Day 15

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 came into being through him,

and without him not one thing came into being.

John 1:1-3

“In the beginning…”

….before the earth was formed; before there was anything, there was God; God who created everything. How long it took, how long it all evolved I have no idea; but that it was the work of God Almighty I have no doubt. That the wind of the Holy Spirit blew over the waters I have no doubt, that the Son of God was present I have no doubt.

John tells us that in the beginning, the beginning of the world as we understand it, was the Word. Jesus himself tells us that He and the Father are one, that anyone who has seen Jesus has seen the Father. Jesus was always the very heart of God. God, who is love, came in the form of man to live with us; to show us how much God loves us by giving his life on the cross.

We plan to celebrate the baby laid in a manger, God actually on earth as one of us, Emmanuel. How awesome to remember that Jesus was there at the beginning of the world we know. How wonderful to know that one day He will return bringing the peace we long for.
