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 NLT
This passage gives an eternal glimpse into the person of Jesus. Have you only thought of Jesus in the day He lived? Historians do –they label Him a human who walked the earth once during His 33 years among us. Believers, although knowledgeable of His existence prior to His appearance on earth as well as hopeful of His reappearance in the near future, should challenge themselves to meditate on this passage in John. These 5 verses, when placed in context with the entire life of Jesus, allow us to fully appreciate the Savior we worship.
