Gospel of John 1:2

“All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.” 
(Gospel of John 1:2)

The Gospel of John emphasizes the deity of Christ. He is the creator of all things and His creation reflects His glory. It displays the wonder of His infinite genius and power. His majesty is everywhere to be seen.

Just look around you....every tree has a unique design.  Every fruit has its own flavor. Every sunset is different. The simplest flower is a wonder of detail and pattern and there is color everywhere. Birds give us the most beautiful music and effortlessly climb to heights in the sky. There are so many many different creatures. Each is special in its own way and can even form bonds and have feelings! There was a time when great dinosaurs roamed our world and then of course there is the wonder of man! A being created in the in the very image of God with the ability to think, to love, to communicate. Every organ in our body has a unique and immensely complex function. The eye to see, the ear to hear, the nose to smell and all work together in a perfect unity.

 We feel guilt at a wrong. We feel a sense of accomplishment at a job well done. We can hold our children in our arms and feel love in our hearts. Is it any wonder the
Psalmist would write that we are “fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139:13)?  Everything in our world points to an omnipotent God. All creation declares the majesty and wonder of Christ.

We have received so much. We have so much to be grateful for. Surely a God who puts so much good in our lives ought to be appreciated? Should we not acknowledge Him and thank Him?  Why not now?
