Genesis1:1 ,   John 1:1

These beginnings speak of the same beginning and of the same Creator.  One is called God and the other called the Word.  However, as we should know they are both the same.  The first use refers to God who is part of the trinity.  The second use is also part of the trinity.  In John he uses the word Word in order to help us understand that the God spoken of in the beginning is a communicating God.  He did not just create the universe and leave it to itself.

No, He intended to stay involved in what He had created.  And still today He desires to be involved but He also talks to us.  Thus, John the Apostle calls Him the Word.

From the beginning God desired to communicate with the man He had created.  The first communication is found in Genesis 2:15-16, and it continues.  Even today, thousands of years later, God still desires to talk to us.  He desires to be the Word and He has much to say to us.

But a huge problem developed very quickly after God had created man.  Man refused to listen and apparently did not want to talk to His Creator.  Because man refused to listen to God, he was driven out of the paradise of Eden.  God still wanted and tried to talk to man but as we read the record in the early parts of Genesis, man  would not listen and drifted further and further away from his Creator.

It is a sad history from that time.  God always wanted to talk to man.  But most of the time man ran from God and did not want to listen.

Does God still want to talk to us today?  Yes He does.  He has much to say if we will slow our busy lives down and spend time with Him and let Him talk.  He has much to say to you.  

On the Mount of Transfiguration the last thing we hear is God the Father saying to man,  'This is My Son.  LISTEN TO HIM.'
