“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. All things were created through Him, and apart from Him not one thing was created that has been created. Life was in Him, and that life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, yet the darkness did not overcome it.” (John 1:1-5 HCSB)
Do you understand the phrase: “In the beginning”? For example, let us take the first few minutes of a long journey. The journey has to first start, then continue and at last come to an end. In any condition, it has to first start. Without a starting point nothing can exist. A human’s life starts when he is born. A new year starts on January. Anything you can imagine or know about is there because someone started it in a particular point of time. Someone took the initiative and behold, many new things are coming to reality.
Likewise the phrase “In the beginning” means the appropriate point when the truth existed eternally. If you are confused, the truth, here, refers to, or means, Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ, the authentic truth and the original Word existed in the beginning leaving no credit for anything else to exist before Him. You cannot say that God existed from a particular point of time. God is not time-limited. God existed before time. This period is called “In the beginning”.
Some people mistake God to be someone unreachable, a mysterious being with whom mere men cannot come in contact with. Yet others try to reach this unreachable divine person by human methods. The Bible portraits the picture of a meek and loving God who came from heaven to earth to bring billions of people to Himself. This is the love of the One Who created you.
God is one. There are no three Gods. The same God exists in three different persons. When we read “the Word was with God, and the Word was God” it does not mean that there were two different Gods. Jesus Christ is God’s identity. What God does, Jesus does the same. What God thinks, Jesus thinks the same. What God speaks, Jesus speaks the same. So, when you love Jesus, you are loving God as well.
The supremacy of Jesus and the supremacy of God is one and the same. God cannot say, “I am greater than My Son Jesus Christ.” Also, Jesus cannot say, “I am greater than My Father.” Numerous people are reading this article. They all are reading it in different locations, using different gadgets. Yet no one can say that this article is in plural form; it is only one article. The one and same article gets displayed in various ways. Likewise the power that Jesus owns is the same power that God owns and it is the same power that the Holy Spirit owns.
Do you know His love includes YOU? Regardless of how terribly and horribly sinful you may be, He loves you greatly and deeply. Will you just believe and accept Jesus into your hearts? It’s never too late to repent, not until the door of grace is open. God is calling you among billions to come to Him and to abide in Him and to live for Him. How do you respond to God’s call?
