Day 1 – Jesus Was With God. March 6, 2019
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. John 1:1-5
Jesus began His Journey to the Cross being with God. Jesus was not surprised by God’s plan, because He was not just with God, He was God! His design from the beginning was to bring life as a light to all mankind. He knew that only through the sacrifice of His life, His body, and His blood would you and I have an opportunity to experience eternal life. Jesus was not hijacked by Satan or ever truly in the hands of evil men, the Cross was His plan to redeem mankind. And He accomplished what He set out to do. He overcame the darkness to set us free. How good to know that even in our darkest moments God is in control.
Lord Jesus, thank You for Your purpose and intention from the beginning to bring redemption to me by offering Yourself. And thank You for Your loving kindness toward me. In this season of Lent, please help me to draw near to You and to know You more. Reveal Your purpose and plan for my life and help me to be a light for others that they too may have eternal life. I praise You and thank you. Amen.
