In The Beginning

Scripture Reading: John 1:1-5

candle lightWhat is your earliest memory? How old were you? Who was there with you?

For some of those those memories hold joy. For others it could be pain. For others it may be a long time ago, for others it might not be so long.

There are millions of years of memories held on this planet. There are our memories, but there are also the memories of what was held in fossils telling us stories from millions of years ago.Yet through it all there is one constant.

God has been here from before the beginning. And at His side is Jesus Christ, the one we wait for who brings light into a darkened world. A world where for some memories are scary, scarring, and full of pain.

Jesus came to show us the pain can be overcome, the darkness can be pushed away, and that God’s light will shine forever.

Lord God, light Your light shine. Let it shine in my life so the darkness may not overcome me.
Help me see the light You bring to the earth in Your Son, Jesus Christ. Amen.
