The Word: Rejected

“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.” (John 1:10-11) It’s no wonder the plot of so many science fiction stories are based on the true story of Jesus. The […]

The Word: Coming Soon: Light!

“There came a man who was sent from God; his name was John. He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all men might believe. He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light. The true light that gives light to every man […]

The Word: Life Light

“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 men. The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it.” (John 1:3-5) John 1 reads like poetry in that you almost have to read every […]
