Daily Word Of God

John 1:1, 9-14, 18

In the beginning was the Word: the Word was with God and the Word was God. The Word was the true light that enlightens all men; and he was coming into the world. He was in the world that had its being through him, and the world did not know him. He came to his own domain and his own people did not accept him. But to all who did accept him he gave power to become children of God, to all who believe in the name of him who was born not out of human stock or urge of the flesh or will of man but of God himself.

     The Word was made flesh, he lived among us, and we saw his glory, the glory that is his as the only Son of the Father, full of grace and truth. No one has ever seen God; it is the only Son, who is nearest to the Father’s heart, who has made him known.

Today's Pointers on God's Word

As you read the passage what words, phases or meanings caught your attention?

  • Today’s Gospel tells us how the Word of God, the Truth, is the True Light that created the universe and all peoples and will lead them all to eternal salvation.


  • The Truth of God is revealed fully in the person of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour, and whose Truth is embodied in God’s Word in Sacred Scriptures.  Those of us who believe in them are children of God.


  • Ponder on how you are able to live God’s Truth daily.  How seriously do you take God’s revealed Word in the Gospel in your daily living?
