John 1:4,5

The following is a continuation of my personal journey through John.

4 In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men.

5 The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it.

Originally, from the beginning, life was found in the  λογος, Christ. Further, Salvation is found in Him. He came to this place corrupted by sin and operated as a The Light to both reveal our sins, and save us from our sins. The powers of this world could not overpower it.

Good stuff. I love the Bible and the Gospel of John.

John 1:2,3

Building upon yesterday’s post; I am still so amazed by the Gospel of John.

2 He was in the beginning with God.

3 All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. Read More Here

So, here Christ was not only with God in the beginning of this reality. There was not a single  component of this reality that came into existence without Christ creating it.

This indicates that God is ultimately in control.  Here’s my prayer.

But You, O Lord, are a shield about me,

My glory, and the One who lifts my head.

Psalm 3:3
