Scripture is God-breathed and true. When we memorize it, we carry the good news of Jesus with us wherever we go.
This week we will memorize John 1:4–5. Here, John continues to draw on the themes of the creation narrative, pointing to Jesus as the source of both life and light. Throughout the Gospels we see Jesus not only identify Himself using these terms, but fulfill them with the actions of His ministry (Jn 11:25; 8:12). Jesus is the Light that has overcome the darkness.
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 All things were created through him, and apart from him not one thing was created that has been created. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of men. 5 That light shines in the darkness, and yet the darkness did not overcome it.
