[In Advent I will be posting one small image each day, with a short piece of scripture or idea to mediate on. Advent is often a busy time, and so I wanted to devise a devotional that could be extremely simple to engage with. If you are busy, simply carry this phrase with you throughout the day. If you have more time, explore further.]
Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness.
Isn’t it wonderful to remember that Jesus was in the very beginning, with God, at the moment of creation? The beginning of John’s gospel takes us back to the first page of our Bible’s with beautiful poetic language. Open your Advent devotions today by reflecting on this truth.
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 was not any thing made that was made.
In him was life,
and the life was the light of men.
The light shines in the darkness,
and the darkness has not overcome it.
