In the order of things, Jesus is first. Nothing came before Jesus. Jesus is the son of God. Jesus is God. Jesus is the beginning and the end.
This is a mystery but our knowledge of Jesus starts with coming to grips with who Jesus is. If Jesus is God, he is to be worshiped and obeyed, just like God. If not, he can be ignored.
May we know who Jesus is.
May we worship and obey Jesus.
The Word was first,
the Word present to God,
God present to the Word.
The Word was God,
in readiness for God from day one. John 1:1-2
