|John wastes no time in his gospel when it comes to describing who Jesus is, in declaring what He came to do, and in pointing others to follow Him. We learn in chapter 1 that Jesus is the “Light,” the “Lamb,” and the “Life!” And it is a good thing because you and I need all three. We need Light to see the Lamb and we need the Lamb in order to have Life.
Re-read these verses and ask God to speak to you again!
John 1:1-5 1 In the beginning was the Word, (that is JESUS) and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of men. 5 The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it.
John 1:29 29 The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!
God is both Creator and Re-creator. Just as He created light in the beginning in Genesis one, He wants to bring the Light to our darkened understanding. Just as Jesus covered the sin of Adam and Eve by the shedding of the blood of an animal in the Garden of Eden, He has provided Jesus the Lamb of God to pay the price for our sins.
Just as God breathed into Adam’s nostrils and he became a living soul, so He wants to breathe life into our lives.
God tell someone this week!
