John 1: 9-13


John 1 continues. It’s a profound chapter and a beautiful introduction to his gospel, setting the tone for his account of his saviour. This short passage speaks volumes of the character of God. When he comes looking to share his love with people he’s not after perfection, a clean record, a nice house or anything we might expect. He simply wants people to receive him. No preconceptions, no assumptions – who are willing to give him the time of day, and give him a chance to bless them.

Why not give him a chance? Why not take a moment to open up John’s gospel and read a few chapters. And as you read, try to read with the eyes of a child – to listen to what the writer is saying without filtering it through what you think Jesus is like, or what you think Christianity is about. It might surprise you.
