The one who is the true light, who gives light to everyone, was coming into the world.
He came into the very world he created, but the world didn’t recognize him. He came to his own people, and even they rejected him. But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God. They are reborn—not with a physical birth resulting from human passion or plan, but a birth that comes from God.
So the Word became human and made his home among us. He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness. And we have seen his glory, the glory of the Father’s one and only Son.
John testified about him when he shouted to the crowds, “This is the one I was talking about when I said, ‘Someone is coming after me who is far greater than I am, for he existed long before me.’”
From his abundance we have all received one gracious blessing after another. For the law was given through Moses, but God’s unfailing love and faithfulness came through Jesus Christ. No one has ever seen God. But the unique One, who is himself God, is near to the Father’s heart.
He has revealed God to us.

Thank you for all the free printable resources to share, they are wonderful! I almost passed by the small print message, so glad I clicked on the NEW share tools.
I have enjoyed reading all the scriptures. If has been encouraging.
What a simple yet truthful message and we do need reminding around this crazy time of year with Santa, present lists, lights, end of year concerts and organising holiday breaks away. It is imperative that we simply take time out to have fellowship with Jesus, quite time of reflection of the amazing thing Jesus did, the fact that he came into the world so that we could know God and be saved if we believe in him. All the other stuff can consume us so Iam taking a moment today to reflect, and give over my troubles, fears and worries to Jesus and thank him for the amazing support and love he has given me, I need my Saviour, every day.
