June 19-Day 2
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not anything made that was made.- John 1:1-3
These verses can be so confusing! Yet, they teach us three very important lessons.
First, the Word is Jesus and he is not only God’s Son but God as well. The Bible teaches that God is a Trinitarian Being, three persons (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) yet one God. John wants us to know that Jesus is God.
Second, Jesus as the Word speaks to us through the Bible. If you want to know who God is and what He has done for you and what we should do in response, turn to the Bible and find out!
Third, Jesus created everything for His own glory. That includes you! He made you and loves you and wants to have a relationship with you!
Do you have a relationship with Jesus? If you just trust in Him, that He has come to rescue you from sin, you can have a relationship with Jesus.
God, we thank you that Jesus is God, that He speaks to us and that He made us to have a relationship with you. Lord, we want to trust in Jesus as our Lord and Savior. And we pray that many kids will trust in you as Lord and Savior during VBS as well. Amen.
