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 anything made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. John 1:1-4
As we begin our 21 Days of Prayer, I’m asking for God to expand your capacity for Him. We need more of God in our minds, hearts, and souls. We need more of God in our relationships. We need more of God in our homes, neighborhoods, and schools. We need more of God in our churches, state, and nation. We just need more of God in our world. Our journey begins in the gospel of John. John was the beloved disciple of Jesus. He knew Jesus and Jesus knew John. As he begins, he takes a page from the book of
Genesis. “In the beginning, God created the heavens and earth…” The Hebrew words, “beristh Elohim” means in the beginning God. This means that God is the perfect Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. Fast forward, to John’s words, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” The Greek word, “logos” means Word, which describes our savior and redeemer Jesus Christ, who was in the beginning with God. This is a foundational truth of the Gospel: Jesus is the Son of God. Jesus Christ is the incarnation of God. Absorb the truth. “In Jesus was life, and the life was the light of men.” Let that truth saturate your heart and mind this morning.
In the quietness of this morning, step out of the darkness and into the light of God’s grace and mercy. God absorbs your darkness to bring you into the light of love and grace. Don’t miss the truth. Don’t miss the light. It’s time to get your prayer on in these next 21 days!!
