He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him.

John 1:10  (NASB)

Thoughts on Today’s Verse

The opening verses of the good news in John’s gospel tells of the most glorious visitation to earth, of the incarnate Son of God – as the perfect Son of Man. As the eternal Creator of the world and co-equal with the Father, He is introduced as the Word made flesh – the One from Whom emanates eternal light.. to brighten a darkened world, and eternal life for all who would believe on His name – but then we read the shocking truth that: He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him.

They saw all that He did and heard all that He said. They witnessed His many miracles and followed Him wherever He went. They became disciples and were astonished at all that He said and all that He did – but they did not believe the Truth and crucified the Lord of Life.

The unbeliever needs to know Him as Saviour, by trusting in His sacrificial death as the one and only substitute for their sin – but the saved man or woman needs to know Jesus personally and intimately. As disciples of the Lord, we should not simply follow afar off but develop a heart-desire to know Him as our Life and our Light.

My Prayer

Heavenly Father, I want to know the Lord Jesus more and more. Open my eyes to see You. Open my ears to hear You and open my heart to love You more and more each day, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN
