John 1:1-5

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.
—John 1:1–5

    Thank you everyone for your prayers. We appreciate them more than you know. We continue to pray to for his healing and recovery, if it’s God’s will. But if it’s not, than we are also praying for comfort and acceptance. Docs are doing tests this morning and we will know more later. Thank you all so much again.

    Happy Sunday She’s!

    @Kelly, my dad is good thank you. He has had these breathing/health issues for years and years, so I don’t expect any major improvement, but he was going through a tough spurt with pneumonia, but that is gone for the time being! I copied/paste the verse you shared with us this morning, thank you!

    My God is still the same! That is the song playing right now. It’s amazing how our God stays steady like a rock, all these centuries, how The Word has endured through these thousands of decades. It’s really crazy to think about that, yet there is still so much disbelief. So many people living their lives without a thought of above. Or flat out saying it isn’t so. This was the case with my niece and nephew recently. Young adults flat out saying they don’t believe in God. It breaks my heart. I pray that God will prepare their spirit to be open, and the seeds might take. I have to believe that.

    Have a good Sunday! I can’t wait to go to church this morning and raise my hands high, or bow my head in reverence- but to worship my God, my Lord and Savior for all he has done, is doing, and will do in my life!!

    I always find verses 4&5 of John 1 so uplifting. Prayers for Maria’s FIL, Rachel and husband’s rest and Diana’s husband’s recovery. “In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” – John 1:4-5. Beautiful.
