Notes on John--Chapter One

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God."--John 1:1-2.

The focus of the Gospel of John is evangelism! In fact, John says it best in chapter 20 ". . .but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing, you may have life in His name."--John 20:31. Believe and have life! This should be our focus as believers as well--to share the good news with others that they may believe and have eternal life!

Jesus was, is and ever shall be! He created the world, brought life and light to us and was rejected by his own creation.

People always cry for a sign from God in order to believe, but the woman at the well had no such sign--just the words of Christ. In fact, all the Samaritans who heard and believed did so without a sign!

  • Jesus heals the lame man
  • Jesus feeds the 5,000 to illustrate He is the Bread of Life
  • Jesus is the Living Water
  • Jesus is the Light of the World
  • Jesus is the Good Shepherd
  • Jesus is the Resurrection and the Life
  • Jesus is the King of Kings!
Simon means "unsteady, untrustworthy and not-dependable," but God changed Peter into a stable rock. Jesus changed water into wine and He changes us from creatures judged by the law into sons and daughters of grace.

God reveals Himself to us in time spend alone with Him. Have you spent time alone with Him today?

Your comment about time alone with God is true. Some of my greatest revelations received are in unhurried time alone in His presence. Busyness distracts and robs you of God's directions and instructions for daily living with His purposeful agenda.

Dear janice, Boy is that true! Busy-ness is the greatest tool of Satan against Christians fulfilling the work of the Lord!
