Discussion for John 1:3

  • W.Marie for verse 3
    all things were made by God without God that means we would not exist that is why we are to present our bodies as living sacrefices holy and exceptable unto him so he can get the glory out of whom he has made,by studying his word that we might administer his word effectually to bring souls to Christ
  • Indeed all creation was made by him and without him was not anything made that was made this include me and every other human being,it also means everything bad or good,every stuation of life it signifies that we can do nothing without he who created us and that we wake up every day coz of his love
  • Very difficult concept to grasp with our finite minds. Many commentaries state that Jesus was the Creator of all things at the beginning. This is in fact true since Jesus is God carnally. The GodHead became the Word and all things were created by Him. The Word became flesh. Bottom line, Jesus is God and created all things. God is invisible but became visible in Jesus Christ. They are one in the same as is the Holy Spirit which is part of the Godhead as well. Now the Holy Spirit God dwells among us.
  • Evans aidoo for verse 3
    Jesus is the same as the word (John1:1).God spoke the word (Jesus)to create the world and all there in.so without him (Jesus-word)nothing would have been created hence John 1:3 amen
  • Father we thank you, that the bible says all things were made by God the Father. We give Glory and Honor. And we will worship you as long as we live. We love you O' God Our Father.
  • MockingBird for verse 3
    God Is Creator of all : This scripture says a lot !!! I am not able to comprehend all that God has & is: Throughout eternity I will still be learning. I stand in AWE of my Lord God Almighty.
