Good morning!! Today's Bible study... John 1:1-18
I've found a resource called 'Essential Jesus' - 100 Readings to get to know Jesus, and thought this would be a great place to start. Part One is called 'Who is Jesus'. So have a read of this passage, and add your thoughts!
Things to think about:
-That Jesus was with God in the beginning, and He is God.
-That through Jesus, all things were created.
-That in Him is life, and the life He gives is 'the light of men' - when we have Jesus, we have light, and that changes everything, we are no longer in darkness.
-v5 "The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it" - this is still true today, and true of us when we have Jesus.
-v10-11 "He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, yet the world did not know Him. He came to His own and His own people did not receive Him." - a warning.
-v12 "But to all who did receive Him, who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God" - this is a beautiful promise and truth - that we become God's children through believing in Jesus.
-v14 - we have seen Jesus' glory in the way He lived, full of grace and truth
-v18 - we haven't seen God, but Jesus has made Him known.
