John 1:1-18

Jesus, be Lord over ALL my life


“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning.” (1:1-2 NIV)

“Everything was created through Him; nothing–not one thing!–came into being without Him.” (1:3 MSG)

“The Word became flesh and blood and moved into the neighborhood.” (1:14 MSG)

Ah! The One who made all things, including me, moved into my neighborhood for a while.  You experienced life as I know it.  You went through the same basic kinds of everyday life situations, choices and relationships.  And You did it while remaining holy and obedient to Your Father who sent You.  Oh, Jesus–make me just like You.

“We all live off His generous bounty, gift after gift after gift … exuberant giving and receiving, this endless knowing and understanding–all this came through You, Jesus, my Messiah.  No one has ever seen God, not so much as a glimpse. This one-of-a-kind God-expression, who exists at the very heart of the Father, has made Him plain as day.” (v. 14, 18 MSG)

Thanks so much for Your multitude of gifts!  Thanks for Your generosity in my direction!!  May I use what You supply in a manner which pleases You, Father.  Continue to shape my heart, my thinking, my desires, and my behavior to be like Jesus.  Amen.
