“He was in the world, and the world came into existence through him. Yet, the world didn't recognize him.” (John 1:10)
Jesus is the light of the world. Yet when He came into this world that He created, He was not recognized. How much harder it is today
Jesus has physically returned to Heaven and sits at the right hand of the Father. He rules over the world. Yet the world still does not recognize Him.
Some people even use His name as a curse.
So has the light gone out?
“However, he gave the right to become God's children to everyone who believed in him. These people didn't become God's children in a physical way-from a human impulse or from a husband's desire to have a child. They were born from God.” (John 1:12-13)
Jesus gave us the best gift ever – the ability to become God's children. It is for this reason that He came to earth. It is for this reason that He died. Many people will not accept this gift. But for those who believe there is “joy unspeakable” waiting as children of the Living God.
