PUZZLE PIECES - Pretend each Puzzle piece represents a different part of your life.

1) Business – where work – what you do. Occupation - Big one – Probably 50 hrs of your week is dedicated to this piece(working driving…etc)

168 hrs in a week. most will spend about 50 hrs sleeping – some more some less

{In two things 100 hrs of your 168 is GONE -

That leaves about 68hrs left to do everything else. What else ?

YOUR family – it is also a big one because our families need us to spend time with them.

social life – your friends – friends are important

Recreation – it doesn’t always fit that well. – Hard to make time for that.

YOUR TIME – TV - read the paper – even – smaller – most of us Know – In this life not much time for you time.

LIKE OUTSIDE OF A DONUT: Giant HOLE in the Middle - Why the hole

What is missing from this picture is JESUS

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God.

3 All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being.

4 In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men.

5 The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.

WHO JESUS IS: 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God.

1. JESUS IS ETERNAL: In the beginning was the Word

Before there was time / before the earth was created – There was The Word.

The Jewish teachers made it Personal – behind every Perfect thought there is a Perfect Thinker - That is the Logos

John identifies the Logos as Jesus – In the beginning was the Word. He is eternal

Revelation 1:8 "I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End," says the Lord, "who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty."

2. Jesus is Distinct: the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God.

He was with The Father in the Beginning

Jesus is God. “And the Word was God – God was in the Word.”

• WITH – lit means ‘face to face’ Face to face with God

Together from Eternity – Two persons – yet one:

1) Equal in essence, nature, power and substance.

2) their glory equal, their majesty equal co-eternal, and yet their Godhead one. This is a great mystery!

WHAT JESUS HAS DONE: 3 All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being.

1. JESUS IS THE CREATOR:

Creator of Time / space & everything that was made.

Creation is God’s first missionary !

Psalm 19:1-2 The heavens tell of the glory of God. The skies display his marvelous craftsmanship. Day after day they continue to speak; night after night they make him known.

Abraham Lincoln was once quoted as saying “I can see how it might be possible for a man to look down at man on the earth & be an Atheist - seeing man But I can not conceive how a man can look up into the heavens & declare there is no God!”
