It’s more than a holiday for family, more than bunnies and eggs, and more than a family dinner. Easter changed the world.
Over the next 21 days let’s take some time to walk with Jesus’ closest friend, John as he tells us who this man was, and is.
Here’s what we know about John’s biography about Jesus. It was written after Matthew, Mark and Luke had written theirs. Mark begins his around the time of John the Baptist, Matthew traces his back to the time of Abraham, Luke goes all the way back to Adam, and John decides to go all the way back to the beginning of time. It’s almost like he’s saying, “Hey guys… this is bigger than even human history. It predates history!”
‘In the beginning the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God. He existed in the beginning with God. God created everything through him, and nothing was created except through him. The Word gave life to everything that was created, and his life brought light to everyone. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it.’ John 1:1-5
As we take this journey together… let me ask you… how long have your current troubles and issues been going on? A few weeks? Your entire marriage? Since high school? Maybe generations?
John wants us to know that “THE WORD”, Jesus, the Son of God, the second person of the Trinity, he predates them all. He is eternal.
How about we start with giving our finite troubles today to the one who is infinite?
