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.
That pretty much says it all! John begins this great gospel and lays the foundation by describing our Lord — who He is and what He is all about. He is God and He’s been around since the beginning. All things were made by Him and in Him is life.
When the things in this life start getting the best of us; when things don’t make sense; and when there is hurt and sorrow in our lives, it is good to go back to John 1:1-4. When we read these verses, it is a reminder that there isn’t anything our Lord can’t handle.
Walking in the light of our Lord,
Pastor Rich Kikuchi
