Begin the New Year with Christ
 

Every year we experience new beginnings. We have the beginning of a new year and each new season. There is the beginning of school. Children enjoy the beginning of summer vacation. There is the beginning of a new project, a new job, a new relationship, a new place to live. Couples begin their married life together with a wedding. Perhaps one of the most precious beginnings is welcoming a new-born member into the family.

 

There are four great beginnings in Scripture. Genesis 1:1 - the beginning of creation; Mark 1:1 - the beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ; John 1:1 - The God who is before the beginning; and 1 John 1:1 - the beginning of the Incarnate Son and the message about him. Ironically, each of these Scriptures builds on one great truth of eternity: Christ had no beginning.

 

It is the essence of saving faith that we believe that Christ is eternal. Jesus came into the world as a human being when he was born. But, this was not a beginning as much as a transition. Jesus added humanity to his divinity, but retained his essential characteristics as God. Not only did Christ have no beginning, he is literally the beginning of all things.

 

In 1 John, the Apostle wrote to instruct us concerning the true identity of the Christ. At that time there were already many who were teaching a different Christ. Some said Jesus Christ could not have been divine, because he had a mortal body. Others said he could not have had a mortal body, because God cannot be contained by mere flesh and blood.

 

John writes plainly and forcefully that although fully God, Christ is also fully human. He testifies that they heard, saw, and touched the Lord Jesus (1 John 1:1). Christ had a real human body so that he could die a real death. Sin must be atoned for by the shedding of blood (Hebrews 9:22). At the same time, it was necessary for Christ to be fully divine to live a perfect life, so his death would be sufficient to pay for all sin. To qualify as our Lord and Savior, Christ had to be both human and divine. Today, you can experience another beginning, the beginning of eternal life, by accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.                              Pastor Daniel Rhodes
