Right from the Start [pun intended] (John 1:1-3)

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 nothing was made that was made.  John 1:1-3

There are books out there that start off the way many high school essays read... you don't really know what the author's point is or where they are going. John makes not apologies for the Subject of his book/letter.  JESUS is the theme, subject and aim of the Gospel According to John.  Notice a few things with me:

- The Word existed in the beginning.

- The Word was with God.

- The Word was (and still IS) God.

- All things were made through Him.

- Nothing came into existence without His making it.

I know that I am simply restating what verses 1 - 3 plainly state... but look at the EMPHASIS of the opening words of this Gospel. 

The Word is God.

This will be a reoccurring theme and the testimony of the whole book.

I wonder if it is a reoccurring theme and the testimony of our lives?
