Light: “The Eternal Life” (John 1:1-4)

Mike Butler

Much has been said about Jesus. If you were to walk around and ask every other person you crossed paths with, you would most likely get a different answer. Some would argue his role as great teacher, others would champion his cause as a liberator, still others might simply say that he means nothing to them. But what should we think about Him? As the Christmas season arrives, the opportunity to speak of Jesus as the Bible describes Him is on the forefront. It is a time to again ask, “How can I see Jesus in all of this?” This week, Pastor Butler begins a series entitled: Light: Jesus as Life. With the first installment, “Light: The Eternal Life" Pastor Butler will call us to consider the eternal relationship between Jesus and Creation from John 1:1-4. Join us this week, Join us Sunday mornings at 9:00 and 10:30 am for worship. For more information about CrossPointe, please visit us at www.crosspointe.tv

Light: The Eternal Life (John 1:1-5)

John 1:1-4, NIV 2011 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind.

Eternal Glory.

John 17:1-5, NIV 2011 “Father, the hour has come. Glorify your Son, that your Son may glorify you. 2 For you granted him authority over all people that he might give eternal life to all those you have given him. 3 Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent. 4 I have brought you glory on earth by finishing the work you gave me to do. 5 And now, Father, glorify me in your presence with the glory I had with you before the world began.

1 John 1:1-4, NIV 2011 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked at and our hands have touched—this we proclaim concerning the Word of life. 2 The life appeared; we have seen it and testify to it, and we proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and has appeared to us. 3 We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ. 4 We write this to make our joy complete.

Eternal Life Given for all creation!

Philippians 2:6-11, HCSB 6 who, existing in the form of God, did not consider equality with God as something to be used for His own advantage. 7 Instead He emptied Himself by assuming the form of a slave, taking on the likeness of men. And when He had come as a man in His external form, 8 He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death— even to death on a cross. 9 For this reason God highly exalted Him and gave Him the name that is above every name, 10 so that at the name of Jesus every knee will bow — of those who are in heaven  and on earth and under the earth — 11 and every tongue  should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory  of God the Father.

Both God and Creator

Colossians 1:15-20, NLT 15 Christ is the visible image of the invisible God.  He existed before anything was created and is supreme over all creation,* 16 for through him God created everything in the heavenly realms and on earth. He made the things we can see and the things we can’t see— such as thrones, kingdoms, rulers, and authorities in the unseen world. Everything was created through him and for him. 17 He existed before anything else, and he holds all creation together. 18 Christ is also the head of the church, which is his body. He is the beginning, supreme over all who rise from the dead. So he is first in everything. 19 For God in all his fullness was pleased to live in Christ, 20 and through him God reconciled everything to himself. He made peace with everything in heaven and on earth by means of Christ’s blood on the cross.

Reflections:

  1. How does seeing the Bible portray Jesus as Eternal impact the way you view Him? 

  2. Knowing that the Bible asserts that Jesus is the creator of all things, what are some ways that it challenges you to see Jesus differently?

  3. What is the one thing you have taken away today from the Scriptures?
