In the Beginning

Bible in 2 years – Psalm 1, John 1:1 – 2:12

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.... The true light, which gives light to everyone, was coming into the world.... He came to his own, and his own people did not receive him. But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God."
John 1:1, 9, 11-13

Dear Heavenly Father,

Jesus is the living, eternal word, the bread of life – plentiful, abundant, good life. In Your design, light shines on the good and the evil. Jesus gives light to the world, to everyone, yet only those who receive and believe in Him, only those whom You have chosen by Your perfect will, become Your children.

Father, make me like Andrew and Philip who were eager to tell others about Jesus. Give me faith like Nathaniel who was quick to believe, “You are the son of God! You are the king of Israel.” Make me like those wedding servants who did whatever Jesus told them to do. Thank you for your life-giving word.

Amen.
