Who among you didn’t want to be a Jedi when you grew up? Of course, most of us didn’t wait until we grew up to become Jedi, we immediately launched our Jedi careers upon our first discovery of the magical entity called The Force. So what if you were only 10 years old and master Jedi Yoda was over several hundred years old, we thought we could grasp all of the intricate details of being a Jedi master, too.

Well, I grew up (for the most part) and never did discover the ability to move objects with my mind. What I did discover was the real Force behind the universe that not only binds things together but also created all of those things in the first place (and it happens to also start with J): Jesus Christ

Read what John says at the opening I’d his testimony to the life and power of Jesus, the Son of God. John 1:1-18 ESV:

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. He came as a witness, to bear witness about the light, that all might believe through him. He was not the light, but came to bear witness about the light. The true light, which enlightens everyone, was coming into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world did not know him. He came to his own, and his own people did not receive him. But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God. And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth. (John bore witness about him, and cried out, “This was he of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me ranks before me, because he was before me.'”) And from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace. For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. No one has ever seen God; the only God, who is at the Father’s side, he has made him known.

If you’ve never learned about Jesus, may I implore you to meet Him and get to know Him. It may not be as cool as becoming a Jedi, but it will be infinitely more important.
