In the beginning was the Word

“In the beginning was the Word, and the word was with God and the Word was God.”
The intended recipient of the Word is you. God had something He wanted to tell you before the first proton and neutron began to vibrate. What was this important news He arranged to tell you long before you were even here to tell? It is that He loves you, that He always has and always will. The fact that the Word was there from the very beginning, and the fact that there certainly was nothing He needed to communicate in Himself among the persons of the Trinity, is the basis of this great gospel of love that has the power to transform the whole cosmos. Look back into the place before time began, and you’ll find a loving God whose heart rejoiced at the thought of bringing you into existence so He could share His love with you.
