In the beginning, the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God.
John 1:1 (NLT)
In today’s reading, John makes a clear connection between Jesus and God the Father. Some people think of Jesus’ time on earth as God’s last-ditch effort to save humanity.
In reality, Jesus was always the plan. God knew what would transpire in the Garden of Eden, after the flood, after the devastation of September 11th, COVID-19, and everything in between, which is why He’s had everything in-place since day one.
So here we are, on the 19th anniversary of 9/11, we’re dealing with a global pandemic, the likes of which hasn’t been seen for 100 years. Through it all, one thing remains the same, a known commodity — God’s Word.
