John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, 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 all mankind. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
We all know about keeping schedules don’t we? They depend on arriving at the right place at the right time. That’s why the word “came” defined the reality of the first 5 verses of John for me. There was a plan! There was a time! There was a schedule! There was a baptist and there was a Jesus!
* John “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.”
* Jesus “came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. Yet …to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God—…born of God. The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen…the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth…For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ”
16 “Out of his fullness we have all received grace in place of grace already given.”
and that’s still on the schedule. Don’t miss it!
