Wednesday's Word, John 1:1-5

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

This is such a profound verse - and in my humble opinion, even an artistic one, I believe it shows very well how should we read the Bible, the meaning of its verses, the fact we should be careful on taking ad literam or not the meaning of a text...
Great way on this verse to show the role of the "word" for mankind. We think and talk using the word, express feelings through the word and finally, we may get God's grace and salvation through it, through the ultimate Word-Son.
Allow me to call this text the diamond of the Bible, simply because it has so many meanings(faces) that everytime you look at it, find new senses (colours).
May the Word be with you! (and I hope George Lucas won't be upset for this).

I've never been comfortable with the use of Scripture in humor from the pulpit, and verses like these make it plain why we shouldn't. It points out plainly that Jesus is The God He said He was, the second in the Trinity and so trifling with The One Who holds our breath in His Hands would seem a bit out of place. You handle it very well brother, may God richly bless you and yours for that faithfulness...B

PS... :-P George Lucas... ;-)
