John 1:1 It Begins With God’s Word

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

Scientists are always striving to find out the beginning of the earth and life of mankind. People want to know how and why there is life upon this earth. They want to know the purpose of mankind.

The majority of people hold to the belief that all of this is just random chance. Everything that exists and is today, is by the chance of evolution. Yet, they still seek to find the actual beginning, that remains elusive to their searching.

John writes that is was the Word in the beginning and that the Word is God.

As the world searches for what began everything and the purpose for everything, God’s Word gives the answer. It started in Genesis and was repeated by John, that everything began with God’s and His Word.

For the unbeliever it does not make sense, because then the question comes up as to when did God begin. However, for those who believe God’s word it lines up everything in perfect order.

The good news with knowing that everything started with God and His Word, is that believers can trust Him with everything in their lives. If God has the power by His Word to create everything, then He has the power to take care of everything also in the life of a believer.

One becomes a believer because God called Him. It does not start with the believer himself, but with God. God is at the beginning of all. He is also the end of all things.

Knowing this, the believer must be willing to look to God’s word for guidance in every area of life. God and His word have all the answers to life and its problems.

God has called you to believe upon Him and His Word. Instead of looking to this fallen world and the sin and lies it promotes, look to God and His word. It is perfect and infallible.

With the Holy Spirit, God’s Word and God, you have access to all power and authority in all creation. You have access to wisdom that was from the beginning of all time.

God created everything with you on His mind. He also sent Jesus, His Son, to die for you, so that you may have the life He meant you to have. This was His plan from the beginning.

Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Savior; that you will trust God with all of your life; that you will seek God’s word in every situation in your life; and that you will know God’s word for you each day.

Luke 7:23 Don’t Stumble

Blessed is anyone who does not stumble on account of me. Luke 7:23

People love to follow other people. They like to know how they should live their lives, by watching someone they admire as to how to that person lives his.

While this can help a person learn some good things, it can also cause a person to stumble. When the person being followed fails or does something wrong, it can crush the person following him, causing him to stumble in his views.

After John’s disciples came and asked if Jesus was the One who is to come, Jesus tells them to report what they see. After saying this, Jesus also mentions that the one who does not stumble because of Him is blessed.

One may wonder how one might stumble because of Jesus. Looking at the life of Jesus one will see that He was a human, just like everyone else, but was also God at the same time. Many people struggle with this concept and stumble in their belief in who Jesus was and what He could and would do.

Jesus also lived a holy life that was an extremely high standard, all the while living in this fallen world. Every believer is to live that same type of life. Yet, many stumble and fall away, because they cannot understand it or refuse to accept it.

No believer should see Jesus as just a man or a good teacher. He was much more than that. Those who fully realize who Jesus is and what He requires of every person, will be fully blessed in many ways for following Jesus and His ways.

Whoever looks at Jesus through the eyes of the world will stumble. Seeing Jesus for who He really is will keep one from stumbling.

Open your bible and study who Jesus really is. Study to know what He did and calls you to do. Allow God’s Holy Spirit to guide you and show you how to live your life.

Do not allow the false thinking of this world to corrupt your thoughts on who Jesus is. Allow God to answer your questions about who Jesus is and how to follow Him.

The world will put doubt and fears in your heart and mind, not God’s truth, who Jesus is. As you follow and trust in Jesus, you will be blessed for all eternity.

Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Savior; that you will know who Jesus really is; that you will not see Jesus as the world does; and that you will know the blessings of follow Jesus.
