John 1:1-5: Who is the Man, Jesus?
As far back as man can remember or seek to comprehend
The Word existed with the Father without beginning or end.
Who was this person John wrote about? It all seems so odd
Until you understand the Word is Jesus the Son of God.
Not only was Jesus with our God, He, Himself, is God too
Fully God as Creator and Lord yet human through and through.
He, who was spirit came to earth, added the nature of man;
Gave Himself to pay sin’s price as heaven’s sacred lamb.
“In the beginning God created,” a quote from Genesis one.
Here in John’s gospel we clearly see the Creator is the Son.
Jesus the Son created the worlds in all their glorious splendor.
He, the Son of Father God, is creation’s beginning and ender.
“He is the image of the invisible God” as seen in Colossians one.
Creator of and before all things, sustainer of earth and sun.
It is He who holds it all together, designed the laws that rule us.
The Bible is given to reveal all truth that Satan might not fool us.
In Him is the life that we are given, to breathe, to learn, to grow.
In Scripture we find the words of life everyone needs to know.
He is the light that pierces the darkness revealing our true condition,
Exposing our helpless sin disorder, in need of His saving mission.
Here is the trouble in human terms: we’ve lived in darkness so long;
Unless light shines we do not know it’s not where we belong.
We were created in God’s great garden, endowed with capacity
To reason, learn, and commune with God for all of eternity.
Consider the truth as it stands today: humanity is marked by sin
Living in endless spiritual decay due to its presence within.
We all have God’s law imprinted inside, but sin is in full control;
The justice of God Christ satisfied instantly making us whole.
No longer compelled to yield to sin, nor fear the power of death.
I will be welcomed to His arms upon my last earthly breath.
I look forward to sharing these truths as we study the Savior’s words
Revealed in the Gospel of John, the greatest message we’ve heard.
