Good morning people who testify about what God has done
1 John 1:1 NIV That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked at and our hands have touched—this we proclaim concerning the Word of life.
Our testimony about Jesus Christ is to be more than a reciting of scriptures.
Don’t get me wrong, the scripture is the infallible Word of God, and if you have been reading BIY for awhile, you know the value I place on God’s Word.
But what John was sharing with those who were struggling was his firsthand encounter with Jesus Christ. He talked about what he had heard, but also what he had seen and what he had touched. In other words, he talked about his personal experience with Jesus.
And simply put, I feel to encourage us all to live 2021 in the same way. Let’s not try and win arguments, or even argue theology (although there is an essential need to be uncompromising in biblical truth). But when it comes to sharing with people, let’s talk about Jesus; Who He is and what He has done.
