Before time and space were created and before angelic voices chorused their read more...

John 1:4

John 1:4

The living God is LIFE. He is the Source of life, the Fountain of life and the Sustainer of life. God spoke animal and plant life into being, but God also breathed the breath of lives into the nostrils of Adam, and man became a living soul.

John 1:5

The Lord Jesus came into the world as the incarnate WORD of God, to reveal to the depraved mind of man the truth of God's eternal love and His perfect holiness. He came into the world as LIFE to breathe 'new-life' into the lifeless spirit of man, that lay dead in trespasses and sins, with no hope in the world. He came into the world as LIGHT to illumine the blackened soul of man, who in his foolish pride had sought to be as God.

John 1:11

John 1:11

There is much pathos in this verse, which is considered by many to be one of the saddest verses in Scriptures - for the God Who created the world and everything in it and chose the nation of Israel to be His special people - returned to the place that He created and to the people that He chose as His inheritance - but His own received Him not. And so He was despised and rejected by His own people - a man of sorrows Who was acquainted with grief.

Man was made in the image and likeness of the invisible God.. with an intellect to think, read more...
