The Word was first,
the Word present to God,
God present to the Word.
The Word was God,
in readiness for God from day one.
He was in the world,
the world was there through him,
and yet the world didn’t even notice.
He came to his own people,
but they didn’t want him.
But whoever did want him,
who believed he was who he claimed
and would do what he said,
He made to be their true selves,
their child-of-God selves.
These are the God-begotten,
John 1-2,10-13 msg
He came that we may have Life, life abundant! Merry Christmas!
