Jesus the Creator

Let’s take a look at John 1:1-5.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. 4 In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men. 5 The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. NASU

This passage is John’s introduction to the arrival of Jesus on the earth as the Son of God. It not only makes the statement that Jesus was God but that as God he was responsible for the creation of the world. Notice that not one single thing created in the beginning was created without him. Nothing exists without Jesus. That is a powerful way to introduce the arrival of God’s son into the created world.

Next we look at verses 10 , 11.

John 1:10-11 “He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. 11 He came to His own, and those who were His own did not receive Him.” NASU

Again John reminds us that when Jesus came into the world he came into what he had made. Nothing was new or strange to him. Every rock, every tree, every mountain high he form by his spoken word. It was his world and he knew the world but the world did not recognize it’s creator. Whatever ‘rule’ governed the universe was totally understood and controlled by Jesus. No wonder water could become wine and wine could become blood. No wonder the wind and the waves obeyed his will. No wonder he understood the hearts of man. He had long experienced their evil thoughts and ways.

Now, 1 Cor. 8:6

“6… yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom all things came and for whom we live; and there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things came and through whom we live.” NIV

Jesus is not only the creator but the giver of life. All things, including life itself finds its source in Jesus.

Do you believe in and worship the Son of God who is the source of all things? He is so much more that a babe in a manger or a lamb on a cross.
