From the Beginning

There are certain things that simply do not change… ever.

There are some things that are constant; no matter what else goes on, they remain the same.  We call these things Truth.  Here is the best of all examples of the Truth:

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning.

 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of men.  

John 1:1-4

The “Word” was with God in the very beginning before the Creation even. This “Word” was God in fact, and through him the entire Creation came into existence. This Word is the source of life and the source of light for all Mankind. That “light” of course is itself Truth.

So who is this “Word” that was with God, that was God, that created the Creation and through whom life and light originated?

The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

John 1:14

The “Word” that was from the beginning with God, who was in fact God is none other than Jesus Christ!  This is the seminal fact of all time.  Here’s another seminal fact: He is still at the right hand of the Father ruler of the Universe, King of kings and Lord of lords.  Whatever else may change, whatever else may not be constant and dependable, this great Truth is unchanging, unshakable and true.

I don’t know about anybody else, but it does me a lot of good to remind myself of what the Truth is every day!
