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

    Hello, sisters! Can I ask for prayer (that is pretty insignificant in light of other heavier requests)? I have been enjoying my SRT time in the morning. It totally makes a difference in my mornings at preschool and then throughout the day. HOWEVER, I am having such a HARD time getting out of bed. (I grew up in Southern California and these Missouri mornings are c-c-c-cold! (You would think I would be used to it after 30 years here!) The bed is so warm and snuggly! Thank you!

    The Light is all I really want in my life. At times I think it would be nice to have someone to go and do things with, I’m divorced, but I have family and friends for that. My God, My Jesus and My Holy Spirit have been with me in the good and the bad, in the hard and the easy, in happy and the sad. The Light is where I know I can turn in my darkest of times.
    Be blessed and always remember to turn to THE LIGHT sisters.
