Today’s Scripture:

John 1: 14

The Word became flesh and dwelt among us. We observed his glory, the glory as the one and only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.

Lord God, when I think on You, I learn and realize that I would know nothing of You, without Your Word.  You gave us your Word so we would not only know You, but know how to seek You.  Jesus, Your beloved Son, coming in the flesh as a man, teaching and showing man Your love Father God, but the evil in this place would not accept Him.

John 1: 9-13

The true light that gives light to everyone, was coming into the world. He was in the world, and the world was created through him, and yet the world did not recognize him. He came to his own, and his own people did not receive him. But to all who did receive him, he gave them the right to be children of God, to those who believe in his name, who were born, not of natural descent, or of the will of the flesh, or of the will of man, but of God.

They condemned Him and put Him to death, the only begotten Son of God was denied, but through Your precious Word God, we have learned that Jesus was the perfect sacrifice for the sin of man, and through Him we have eternal life.  It is still amazing that even after 2000 + years we are amazed at Your divine love for us.  I can’t help but think about eternity past, and where it is that You God were, Your very existence is the most complicated thought.  Scientist say, “Space, the Universe, is so many millions of years old,” they have no idea when it comes to eternity what that really even means.  A hundred million years is only a beginning, to be lost, and not know Jesus, would mean total damnation, and outer darkness in the fires of hell.  As awful as that is, it is hard to wrap your mind around the fact that hell is forever, after being there a million years you would not be even one second closer to being free of the place.  God, You knew that Jesus (the Word) was the only way to reverse the sin curse that Adam and Eve caused.  We deserve hell and that horrible place, but You, through Your amazing grace, made away for eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.  Thank You Father God for loving me that much.  What an honor, and privilege it is to accept Your Son Jesus as Lord of my life.  I pray that people will realize that Jesus is the answer to eternal life.  Trusting, and knowing Jesus as my savior is the most wonderful thing that ever happen to me, there is absolutely no pressure in this walk with Christ.  He defeated sin, death, and Satan, and gave me authority through the Holy Spirit to have power, and walk in victory because of Jesus.  Holy, Holy, Holy, is the Lord our God, forever we praise You Lord.  We love You and thank You for all the blessings through the years You have bestowed upon us Your children. Even so come for us dear Lord, we wait for Your return.

Amen.
