There is a common saying by Christ-followers at Christmas – “Jesus is the reason for the season.” Behind these memorable words is a potent truth, Christ came from eternity past to live among us, die and rise from the dead, and now is exalted to the highest place! John’s Gospel says it like this in John 1:1-5, 14 (NLT):
In 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. So the Word became human and made his home among us. He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness. And we have seen his glory, the glory of the Father’s one and only Son
