BIBLE PASSAGE Genesis 1:1 and John 1:1
STORY: "AND SO IT BEGINS"
GOSPEL CONNECTION The story of creation is just the first story of the Biggest Story.
In Genesis we will learn that, because of sin, people aren’t very good mirrors.
We don’t reflect God very well. But Jesus “the Word” (John 1:1) came as “the image of the invisible God” (Col. 1:15). He perfectly showed what God is like, and he made a way for our broken mirrors to be repaired so that we could again do the job God created us to do.
But the Word isn’t just our Savior. He, with the Father and the Spirit, created everything.
This is why, when John begins his Gospel, he uses words like the ones in Genesis 1:1. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” (John 1:1). Jesus also came to be the
“Light of the World” so that whoever follows him “will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life” (John 8:12)
