a difference in our darkness

devotions from Jefferson Vann # 2370

John 1:1-5

Joh 1:1 At first there was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Joh 1:2 He was with God at first.
Joh 1:3 Everything else was created through him, and apart from him not one thing was created that has been created.
Joh 1:4 Life was in him, and that life was humanity’s light.
Joh 1:5 That light is now shining in the darkness, and yet the darkness has not overcome it.

a difference in our darkness

John’s story is about our creator, who has pierced the darkness of our own existence with his light. We owe our existence to him, but that was not enough for him. In love, he sought us out, and shared his life with us, even though he lives in unapproachable light, and we live in darkness. John tries to convey the enormous distance there now is between us and our creator. Then he tells us that God has done something about that distance. He is now shining. His life among us has made a difference in our darkness.

LORD, thank you for sharing your light in our dark universe.
