In the beginning was the Word… - John 1:1
John’s gospel does not take us to the familiar road to Bethlehem. Instead he links the birth of Jesus to the creating God. So, he goes to the beginning, where we started two weeks ago. Creation could only happen when God spoke. This new creation of Jesus into our world is another step in God’s activity for us.
Let us rejoice this day at what God is planning to do.
