Jesus Is...the Word/God (John 1:1-3)Pastor Joe Sanders, January 9, 2011
Part of the Jesus Is... series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
We don't remember the names of the great biographers, we remember the names of the subjects of great biographies. More than that- we write and read biographies about memorable, interesting, impactful people. The Gospel of John is the account of the life, teachings and acts of Jesus Christ and John wrote it because he wants us to know Jesus in much the same way that he knew Jesus. John wants us to pay honor and respect to Jesus as a great man and to learn from him. As John was struck by the awesome love of God through Jesus, he was most overwhelmed by this: That the same Jesus who talked about love was the same God who is love. John wants us to know from the very beginning that Jesus is God and the rest of Jesus' story only matters because of that.

1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2The same was in the beginning with God. 3All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. (KJV)
