in the Beginning was the WORD

 Since the inception of the John 10:10 Project, each December we’ve produced a video that celebrates the wonder and blessings of the Christmas season. In keeping with this tradition, today we are pleased to premiere THE GREATEST GIFT,  
     This new video was inspired by my recent study of John’s gospel. In it, the apostle adds a remarkable dimension to the Christmas story that is often overlooked. The opening verses (1-14) of the first chapter proclaim that Jesus (who entered the world as a human child in a Bethlehem manger) was present–with God the Father and the Holy Spirit–when the universe was created from absolutely nothing.

We would appreciate your donation.

     The implications of this truth are fascinating and important. The Christmas story really begins long before Matthew and Luke’s first century descriptions of shepherds, angels, and a stable. Those beloved events were actually the fulfillment of an eternal plan that God set into motion when He created the heavens and the earth. It was a plan with the power to ultimately save the world from sin with the most glorious treasure we could ever receive. I hope you enjoy THE GREATEST GIFT and its message of everlasting redemption and joy to the world.
On behalf of the John 10:10 Project team, have a wonderful Christmas,

About the Author

The John 10:10 Project
WHAT IS THE JOHN 10:10 PROJECT? Contrary to wishful thinking, the Christian life isn’t a free pass to Disneyland. In reality, it can often seem more like a minefield laced with fear, disappointment, anxiety and doubt. Yet, in John 10:10 Jesus promised anyone who follows him the opportunity to know an “abundant” (i.e. blessed, satisfying, meaningful) life. Now, he didn’t say this abundant life would be circumstantially easy (check out the apostles in the book of Acts: tortured, imprisoned, crucified). But Jesus did offer us genuine hope, joy, purpose and inner peace that surpasses all understanding – even when our roof leaks like a sieve or one of our friends battles cancer. So, how do we experience this abundant life when everyday life is often so difficult? Many ideas have been proposed and the best seem to share a similar conclusion: the better we know Jesus, the more we’ll trust him. Trust leads to faith, and faith leads to a life empowered and enriched by the Holy Spirit. The films that comprise THE JOHN 10:10 PROJECT were produced to help nurture a deeper understanding of God. Each 4-10 minute video explores a facet of the Lord’s character, promises and power. Think of them as small stepping stones on your pathway to a more abundant Christian life. Each film in this collection is structured for use in personal devotions, Bible studies, outreach and corporate worship. We hope you will find them helpful on your journey.
