Daily Bible Study - kindly provided by Premier and the Bible Society

Do have a look at the Premier Daily Bible reading below. It is really so good.


In the beginning the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God. John 1:1

Can I be honest? I listened to these words for years without really understanding what they meant. They are often used at Christmas carol services and they seemed very mysterious to me. John, who wrote them, would have been deeply saddened by my reaction; for him, and his readers, the meaning was obvious because everyone knew what he meant by ‘the Word’ or, as the original Greek says, logos. This was an expression often used in Greek philosophy and shaped the thinking of his day. He was saying that Jesus was nothing less than God himself and that, when God spoke to the world, he did so in the form of his Son, Jesus, the Word.

This majestic verse reminds us of the very beginning of the Bible, where we learn that God created the world. When God spoke, something happened. On day one, he said: “Let there be light” (Genesis 1:3) and there was light. That is to say, there isn’t a distinction between the word and the action. So when God sent Jesus into the world as the Word, we see him acting in the most powerful way to bring life to the world.

John is very clear about the purpose of his Gospel. He isn’t writing a philosophical textbook but offering an introduction to a friend of his called Jesus. He wants his readers to understand that if they intend to find out what life is all about then they need to meet Jesus, and receive the life that he came to bring through believing in his name. In the other three Gospels, we hear about Jesus meeting many different people but these encounters are all told very briefly. John’s gospel is different. Here, we find Jesus having long conversations with people and, in them, we learn that his purpose was to get alongside people, however complicated their circumstances; to bring them new life. I believe that Jesus is doing exactly the same today. He wants to come alongside us, amid all the complexity of our lives, and show us how he can bring us his abundant life today. It is a life which is so rich and wonderful that it will never come to an end.

QUESTION
In what ways has meeting with Jesus changed your life?

PRAYER
Loving heavenly Father, I worship you because you spoke to the world by sending Jesus as your Son. Thank you that in him I can find life today. Amen
