It’s New Years and we are all thinking about new beginnings. Well, so is the apostle John. “In the beginning…” he starts this famous gospel. As we prepare for another year of life and ministry together let us look to John to grab a few pointers.
We expect outsiders to belittle the Bible, but too often Christians do as well by their ignorance or indifference to its teachings. Jesus and his disciples on the other hand, exalted the word of God. When all was said and done it was the words of Scripture that remained after Jesus died and ascended and it is the words of Scripture that the Holy Spirit uses to mature us in faith.
