Scripture: John 1:1-4
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
The same was in the beginning with God.
All things were made by Him, and without Him was not anything made that was made.
In him was life, and the life was the light of men.
- Everything was made by God. He is in control.
- Jesus has been alive since the very beginning.
- Only in Jesus is there true life.
- We must believe that God created the universe and everything in it. This gives me an eternal, spiritual perspective through which to see people and events.
- Without Jesus, there is no life. Only after we accept him as our Lord and savior can we truly begin the journey of living the life we were created to live.
Heavenly Father, it is only through your Son, Jesus, that we can begin to live. Thank you for reminding me that You are in control — You are the creator of the heavens and the earth, and you created me. I ask for vision to see the world as a Christian — to see everything and everyone as your creation. And please help me to lean on and trust you through the everyday trials and tribulations, and to be a light in a dark world. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
