John 5:31-40
A person cannot give testimony in a trial or courtroom unless they experienced the event in some way. As Christians we provide witness to the world. Sometimes we use words. God provides evidence of Himself. In Romans, Paul says that we are without excuse. The splendor of the universe declares the evidence of God. Jesus testified of Himself. He provided evidence in the form of miracles and teachings that lined up with prophesy that identified Him as the Messiah. The Spirit testifies to the Truth. The whole earth bears witness. John the Baptist was a witness. People regarded him as the Messiah until he denied the notion saying that One would come whose sandals he was not fit to untie. However, the people were not willing to identify Jesus as the Messiah. They were wrong of course. They believed that the Messiah was supposed to fit certain parameters. They had it all figured out, but they were wrong. We can learn a lesson for this; don’t have it all figured out because no one really knows how it will all work itself out. In the meantime we are the witnesses of Christ. We are to give testimony of the One who saved us. You are the salt of the earth. You are the light of the world. Let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven, Matthew chapter five. You are the voice of one calling out in the desert, Isaiah 40:3. Eternal life begins with Jesus. We experience it. It changes us and we become witnesses of the Most High whether we consider ourselves as such or not. Your life is a witness. What kind of witness are you giving?
