Daily Gospel Devotional: January 26

John 1:29-34

Here comes God…

When the movement of God is moving toward us, we do right to proclaim it and to perform in it.

We have the witness of promise. John had been given a word by God, and he proclaimed it faithfully, and Jesus was the fulfillment of that word. We know what the Word of God says, and we are looking for it to be fulfilled in our life. Jesus is the fulfillment of the redemption (Isaiah 53:6 / 1 Peter 1:19 / 1 John 3:5), and He will fulfill the Word of God to you (Romans 8:28 / Galatians 1:4 / Philippians 1:6 / 2 Timothy 1:12).

We have the witness of practice. John had been given a way by God, he came baptizing, and Jesus showed up right there in his daily diligence. Do what you know you should do, and Jesus will be revealed to you, in your daily life (Matthew 6:33 / Colossians 1:27), and through you, to others who come in contact with your life (Matthew 5:16 / Acts 4:13 / Philippians 2:15).

We are left here on earth so that our lives will tell others about Jesus. You witness to others about Christ with your voice, your vocation, and your values. If we will be about the business of the kingdom of God, we will see the revelation of Christ clearly because we are looking for Him by living for Him.

God will show up. We will see unmistakable evidence. The acquaintance becomes a near reality and the power of the Holy Spirit is manifest, and suddenly we know this is it!

Behold the Lamb indeed…

Glory to his name!

Do what you know you should do, and Jesus will be revealed to you, in your daily life

and between that and your biblically informed conscience you will not "need" to "feel" his presence. You will know he is there regardless.
