"The Creating Word Becomes Flesh"
Background: John 1:1-14

Devotional Reading: Genesis 2:1-13

Keep in Mind
"All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. (John 1:3, KJV)

Aim for Change
By the end of the lesson, we will EXPLORE the meaning of the Word for the world, FIND true inspiration for life in Jesus, and LIVE in relationship with Creator God because of the "light" (grace and truth) that Jesus gives.

Focal Verses: John 1:1-14
1In the beginning the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God.
He existed in the beginning with God.

God created everything through him, and nothing was created except through him.
The Word gave life to everything that was created, and his life brought light to everyone.
The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it.
God sent a man, John the Baptist,
to tell about the light so that everyone might believe because of his testimony. 

John himself was not the light; he was simply a witness to tell about the light. 
The one who is the true light, who gives light to everyone, was coming into the world.
10 He came into the very world he created, but the world didn’t recognize him.

11 He came to his own people, and even they rejected him. 
12 But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God. 
13 They are reborn—not with a physical birth resulting from human passion or plan, but a birth that comes from God.
14 So the Word became human
[d] and made his home among us. He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness.[e] And we have seen his glory, the glory of the Father’s one and only Son.
