“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).
Before everything else.... before creation.... before life....
the Word breathed. It lived. It not only was with the Creator, it was
Him. It was His very being.... His very essence. It was His Truth, and
His purpose. That purpose brought forth His creation, and nothing came
into being unless it came through His Truth and His Word. His essence of
Truth became substance, and substance became matter. And His Creation
existed. His Word breathed life to all that He created. His light now
shines in the darkness, and will never be put out.
state of the world around you.... whatever seems to control it....
whatever you face in this life... whatever attempts to strike terror in
your heart.... REMEMBER, His Word still lives. His light still shines.
It can never be extinguished. You are His creation, and Jesus Christ,
the light that can't be extinguished, desires to live in you and breathe
life into you everyday. If you take Him into your life, He is your
light, and He lives in you. That life... that light can never be put
out. That life will live forever... just as His Word will live forever.
His Truth and His Word, continually shine in the darkness bringing His
light and life to His creation. No matter what His creation becomes,
take heart. His Word and Truth lives and breathes and lights His world.
It can never be extinguished. He has overcome the world.
