The Stage Was Set–John 1 Part 2

The thought that God would come and dwell among us is a difficult concept to comprehend.  What is more, Since God’s purpose was to show us his true heart and love for us, lightning bolts and drama would not have quite sent the intended message.  So, God chose to appear with the minimum of fanfare.  He announced his arrival through the prophets, through the stars and through John the Baptist. 

He knew convincing men of his love for them would be difficult.  He also knew that most would reject him.  But, to as many as would believe in him, to them he gave the right to become his kids.  The right that is alive and well today.

God’s message of Love is equally pertinent today.  The world is as lost and counter to the message of God’s love as they were when Christ came. through the Church and media, his message of love is being spread throughout the world.  But, as in the time of Christ, most are hostile to the message of love God has shared.  Few recognize the sacrifice made by God’s appearance on the scene. Fewer recognize their need for a savior. But to as many as receive the message he still gives the right to be one of his kids for now and for eternity.  No greater right exists in all the world.

God Bless You

In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome[a] it.

There was a man sent from God whose name was John. He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all might believe. He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light.

The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. 10 He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. 11 He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. 12 Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— 13 children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.
