'In Him was life ...'


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

It was the eternal Son of God who gave man life — both physical and spiritual. He created us in His image so that man knew God and His will, loved Him, trusted Him, and sought to honor Him in all his thoughts, desires, words, and actions. Sadly, by man’s disobedience and rebellion against God, the image of God in which we were created has been marred and corrupted by sin.

We thank You, dear Lord Jesus, for creating us for life in fellowship with You. Restore us to that fellowship through faith in You and Your atoning sacrifice on the cross for our sin. Amen.

[Scripture is quoted from the King James Version of the Bible.]
