Word With Us
The ninth lesson is John 1:1-14.
In the beginning there was God
Before anything else
There was God.
In the beginning there was the Word
The Word was God.
And the world came to be.
Life, born of light.
Light, more powerful than the darkness.
God sent a man named John
Who spoke of the Word.
John was a witness to the light.
God had prepared a way
And John pointed to the path.
God sent the Word.
Creator of the world.
And yet the world did not know him.
Those who believed what was spoken,
Those who had faith by what was seen,
Those who followed what was done,
Became children of God
Heirs of his power,
Born of his Word.
The Word became man
And walked among us.
From him we learn the nature of God.
Through him, we can see the glory of God.
Because of him, we know truth.
Grace is given to us,
So that the Word can dwell within us.
Light, so that we can have life.
