Love Lesson 1: by turtle

Ephesians 2:4  
4  But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,  

God loves us. No question about it. God love is rich and his mercy is endless. But who is God, who is
Jesus? Let?s begin our lesson in John 1:  

John 1:1-5  
1  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  
2  The same was in the beginning with God.  
3  All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4  In him was
life; and the life was the light of men.  
5  And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.  

Questions  

1. What does it mean in the beginning was the Word. Who is the Word?   

2. Was it always the same or has things changed?  

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

2  The same was in the beginning with God.  

Word was with God and was God in the very first verse. The Word speaking here is of Christ. God word
was Jesus. He was always with the Father since the beginning of time.  
 

John 8:58  
58  Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.  

John 17:5  
5  And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the
world was.  

Christ declares in both verses he been around before Abraham and with Father since the beginning of
time. So the Word which is Christ been since the beginning and is God. This is very simple.  Christ is more
then a Prophet or a teacher He is God. He was from the very beginning of time.  
 

3. What was made by God?  

John 1:3  All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.  

Genesis 1:1  
1  In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.  

Psalms 8:3  
3  When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast
ordained;  

God created all things from the beginning of time. Christ is God He created. He was the spoken word.   

4. In whom was life and what does that mean?  

John 1:4  In him was life; and the life was the light of men.  

Life came from God   Christ  was the light of the world. Christ represents the Light of God. Christ came to
draw all men to God. Draw all men to Christ.  This whole passage In John 1 : 1-5 speaks of Christ.    

5. What does not comprehend the light any clue why?  

5  And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.  

Christ came into the world to show God?s love for mankind. Only problem is the world did not
understand. They were not use to recognizing God. The could not see Jesus was God. World was so intent
of doing its on thing and not honoring God that they did not know Him or recognize him. Do you
recognize Christ as Lord? Do you recognize Jesus as the Son of God. Jesus is the Light of the world. May
you soon understand How much God loves you that He sent His own Son to die for you and me so that
we might know who He is.   

God loves each and everyone of us. His love is beyond measure.
