In the Beginning
I John 1:1-3 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.
As I look at these words written nearly two thousand years ago I wonder how many people have read, hear, and reflect upon these verses and applied it to their life. The world as we know it was made by God. However, do I really believe this and reflect this belief in my daily live? If I do then I have an advantage over the person who does not believe. The advantage that I have is a starting point for all my beliefs: God!
Since all things were made by him getting to know him will open the flood gates of knowledge before me. The more I learn of him the more I see the sinfulness of mankind and the need to proclaim his message of grace. The more I learn of him, the more I see how wonderful this world was made. The more I know him the more I understand Genesis 1:31 “And God saw everything that he made and behold it was good”. And as the disciples had Christ to lead them into all truth, we have the Holy Spirit to guide us daily from the words of the scriptures. So stay in his word and let the Holy Spirit guide you in all truth.
