John 1:1–14 Creation

posted Aug 6, 2020, 9:21 AM by Jacob Boer

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

There was a man sent from God whose name was John. He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all might believe. He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light.

The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God—children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God. The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.”

The world was created on purpose with purpose, it was not an accidental creation. Because creation was intentional, because God, as Father, Son and Holy Spirit were all involved in creating, creation is personal and meaningful, giving meaning and purpose to our lives; we are not accidental beings. God has created you and formed you for a purpose; the main purpose is to glorify God’s name through and in our lives. We were created to be in relationship with God who has brought order out of chaos, brought wonder out of nothing. He can do the same in you.


C.T Article 8. In the beginning, God—Father, Word, and Spirit—called this world into being out of nothing, and gave it shape and order.
