He Just Was

John 1:1
In the beginning the Word already existed.
The Word was with God,
and the Word was God.

John 1 is such a powerful chapter!  The excitement I feel as I am reading it this morning I can't even explain!  Just powerful to my soul!  Before I was a Christian it was important to me that I know where God and Jesus came from.  How they "were" so to speak.  No one could ever give me an answer.  They always said, "They just always existed.  They just were and are."  That was never good enough for me.  I needed to know.  Well, I am now a Christian and all I know is, "They just already existed.  God just is and always was."  Then the Word...Jesus...well verse two explains that...

John 1:2
He existed in the beginning with God.

He just is.  And you know what?  Today that is good enough for me.  Why?  Because somehow that is enough.  My finite mind doesn't know where they came from, or really understand it. my heart somehow...I just get it and it is exciting!!

The whole first chapter of John is so exciting to me.  So many nuggets of truth...

John 1:14
So the Word became human and made His home among us.  He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness.  And we have seen His glory, the glory of the Fathers one and only Son.

Jesus.  He became human.  He came here and lived to sacrifice Himself for us so that we can live with Him forever.  Gods one and only Son came to earth and lived as a man so that He could die for each and everyone of us...that we might live! 

John 1:29b
..."Look!  The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!"

Ohhh...what a proclamation from John the Baptist.  John telling everyone who Jesus is and why He came.

As I said...powerful chapter!  There is so much more and it is so exciting.  If you let it happen...The Word...will just reach out and grab hold of you...and you will never be the same!
