“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God,
and the Word was God.” John 1:1
What a remarkable way to begin a thought, a meditation, or a prayer!! I know that I am very comfortable knowing that God always was, always is, and always will be. I know that my biological parents helped raise me to the man I am today, but I was not created without the will of God. He shined light on my parents, when I was conceived, and continued to shine this light on them and me, as I matured.
John the baptizer lived to spread the Word of the coming God on earth; I believe it is our duty to do the same. We are here because of the grace of God and therefore we should spread his light to those we meet. This chapter of John the disciple continues by saying that the Word became flesh; this was Jesus, God among us, who taught us that God is within us also.
All of His fullness, we also have received; we just do not recognize this within ourselves or within others. I think it about time that we look for this. Our world is so corrupt that many have forgotten his important lesson. We are God’s children, made of Him, conceived by Him. I have many friends who do not believe this, but I pray that someday they will realize this. I did not when I was younger; I was too into myself and my success to think that anyone other than myself created my successes.
John says that no man has seen God; true, but I feel Him in my life. Looking back at my successes, I can now see God’s hand in everything. When I see the trials that were in front of me, I see the hands of God guiding me through to see the light. I have opened my heart to listen to what God says. I agree with the disciple John, when he says: “Hereafter ye shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man.”
Look closely, my brothers and sisters, the angels of God descend on us all, every day.
