John 1:1-3 (NIVUK)
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.
John start’s his Gospel with these famous words that introduce us to Jesus as God’s creative word. They echo the opening words of Genesis, ‘In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.’ With the coming of Jesus the beginning of a new creation, a re-creation, is ushered in.
Jesus, I invite you to do your work of re-creation in me today.
