The Faithfulness of God

Creating Adam by Dragan Bachev
Creating Adam by Dragan Bachev
 In the beginning the Word already existed.
    The Word was with God,
    and the Word was God.
He existed in the beginning with God.

John 1:2

The Word is Jesus. He is God. He existed at the beginning and was present before the beginning of this world. (Reference A)

God created everything through him,
    and nothing was created except through him.
The Word gave life to everything that was created, and his life brought light to everyone.

John 1:3-4

Jesus is the giver of life.

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
John 3:16

Then the LORD God formed man of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.
Genesis 2:7

But after the three and a half days, the breath of life from God came into them, and they stood on their feet; and great fear fell upon those who were watching them.
Revelation 11:11

The light shines in the darkness,
    and the darkness can never extinguish it.[b]
God sent a man, John the Baptist, to tell about the light so that everyone might believe because of his testimony. John himself was not the light; he was simply a witness to tell about the light. The one who is the true light, who gives light to everyone, was coming into the world.
10 He came into the very world he created, but the world didn’t recognize him.

John 1:5-10

Do you recognize Jesus for who he is? 

Those who believe in Him still struggle with who He is, just as the disciples did even when they were with him during His ministry. (John 20:24-29)

God is faithful! (Resource E)

He is the Rock; His work is perfect. For all His ways are just, a God of faithfulness, and without evil; just and upright is He.

Deuteronomy 32:4

In the times we are preparing for you will need to understand and practice these principles.  You have to have faith in Jesus and trust in him completely! Even if we don't know what the next event will be. God has this all planned out and it will go according to His will. 

The faithful love of the Lord never ends![a]
    His mercies never cease.
23 Great is his faithfulness;
    his mercies begin afresh each morning.

Lamentations 3:22-23

Reference:
A:  Jesus was God.

B:  How can Jesus be both God and man at the same time?

C: What does it mean Jesus is "the light?"

E: How can I learn to trust in the faithfulness of God?

All glory and honor to my Lord Jesus Christ,
Sherry
