what we have seen and heard we proclaim to you also, so that you too may have fellowship with us; and indeed our fellowship is with the Father, and with His Son Jesus Christ. 1 John 1:3 NASB
Have you ever seen a good deal and had to share it with someone? Better yet, have you ever seen a good deal and experienced the blessing of it and then, because you were so blessed by it, you had to tell someone?
That was John!
He knew Jesus. He hung out with Jesus. He saw the healings, the demons cast out and the miracles. But more, he saw the risen Lord!
What he was sharing, what he was telling others about, he had first hand knowledge.
And what about you?
Jesus is near you. He has come close. He sent the Holy Spirit so you are connected to Him and the Father.
Are you excited about it? Are you excited to tell someone what you have experienced, what you have known, what He has done for you?
Like John, you have the invitation to draw close to Jesus.
So now what?
Father, let the joy of my heart and the desire of my soul proclaim Your salvation in this place.
