Thoughts as Christmas Approaches 1


This morning I was thinking as a physicist about the enormous complexity of the beginning of the universe, and how it became what it is today.

I find myself deeply moved by the opening words of the Gospel of John (NLT):

“In the beginning the Word already existed. He was with God, and he was God. … He created everything there is. … Life itself was in him, and this life gives light to everyone.”

Bible scholar Bruce Milne (The Message of John) said that one of the most significant statements ever written is in John 1.14:
“The Word became human and lived here on earth among us.”

Coffee/tea ThoughtCoffee/tea thought: It was C. S. Lewis, I think, who said that Christ coming as a human is as though the Author of the play walked on stage and entered his play. Think about it.
