Behold the witness

John 1:6-9…

John the Baptist was the confirmation of Jesus; this was the man the Old Testament passages said would prepare us for the Messiah (Isaiah 40:3 / Malachi 3:1, 4:5-6). His parents knew that he was the herald of God (Luke 1:17, 76). His eyes were opened, and his mission was clear.

John was the transition, the last and greatest of the Old Testament prophets. He had one main reason for being born; to be the initial, burning, public flame that would lead people to Jesus, the True Light. Indeed, he had the greatest calling, yet his whole public ministry lasted little more than six months. Still, John the Baptist did his job well.

Now we have the greatest job, proclaiming that the King is coming again. We have a reason for being born again and yet bound to earth. Fellowship with God, fellowship with each other, and triumph over sin will all be complete in heaven, but the one thing we do here that we cannot do in heaven is to tell lost people about Jesus.

How do you “tell” people? You live for Christ, win others to Christ, and edify your brothers and sisters in Christ. Those you see the most are the ones you have the most chance to “tell”, and you tell with all your life. To be a means in saving even one soul, that is worth living for.

Behold your witness…
