Daily Gospel Devotional 2013: Corroborating evidence

John 5:31-47 …

In His ongoing testimony about His relationship with God as His Father, Jesus appealed to the evidence of witness, the evidence of walk, and the evidence of essence.

John the Baptist, whom the religious leaders liked for a little while, till the heat came on, was a witness to Jesus. Do the people in your circle of life testify to the movement of God in you? Can other people believe what is said about you?

The greater evidence that Jesus was who He said revolved around the fact that His walk was absolutely worthy of God. His walk was a working walk. Our walk will waver and our works are not the equal of our Lord’s, but do we work to walk in His footsteps (1 Peter 2:21 / Ephesians 4:1)? Does the truth about deliverance and salvation radiate from you (Matthew 5:16)?

People that don’t have the love of God in them are people who don’t know God, and don’t seek to consciously glorify Him. The religious types will look to their own ways to justify themselves, but without Jesus, without God’s grace, this is all just man made religion.

The Old Testament and New, all down the line we see Jesus. The whole of the bible is about Him. The Old Testament didn’t mention Jesus by name but in essence. Our works don’t save us, but they are evidence of our walk with Jesus, evidence that our essence has changed, and is one with the One we say we worship.

Even if we have the evidence of witness, the evidence of walk, and the evidence of essence, this doesn’t mean others will believe. However, that doesn’t lessen our responsibility one bit, and if we love the Lord we will walk His way. Salvation comes from God, but situations come to us, and we are to demonstrate as well as declare that Jesus is Lord and Christ.

Does your current life story reflect the truth of the bible?

Do the people who abide in the truth know that you are of the truth?

Does the evidence of your life support your claim to be a Christian?
