Jesus in Creation
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men.” (John 1:1-4, ESV)
Jesus is life and in and through Him all things were made. We read John 1 and we are shown in this first chapter part of the mystery of the Old Testament. God allows us to see how He works in a very deep and intimate way. What had remained hidden and a mystery in the Old Testament is now revealed to us so our eyes may be opened to His glory.
Praise be to God, it is no longer a mystery! We know it is Jesus, the breath of life. This knowledge allows us to see and understand Jesus on a much deeper level. He gave us life from the beginning and through Him we are re-born to a new life by the blood shed by paying the price of death for our sins.
“The true light, which enlightens everyone, was coming into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world did not know him. He came to his own, and his own people did not receive him. But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.” (John 1:9-13, ESV)
He came as a mystery but those whose hearts were turned towards God were able to see the mystery revealed. They were able to see Jesus, to see past the disguise.
Lord, we pray today that Your mysteries may not remain hidden by our blind worldly eyes. Lord let us see You in all your glory! You are our life. Through You we have a new life and a new name written down in glory. Hallelujah, praise Jesus! Lord we praise You, we worship You, we thank You, and we love You. Thank You for our new life in you and for bringing us back into the very presence of God. Let all the Glory be to You and let everything we do be done Your love. In the mighty life giving name of Jesus, Amen!
