Too Good Not To Share


(John) came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light,

that all through him might believe.


John 1:7


During court proceedings, witnesses are more than onlookers or spectators. They are active participants who help determine the outcome of a case. The same is true of our witness for Christ. We are to be active participants in a matter of absolute importance, the truth of the Lord's death and resurrection.


When John the Baptist came to tell people about Jesus, the light of the world, he did so by declaring his knowledge of Jesus. And John the disciple, who recorded the events, testified of his experience with Jesus: “we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. ” (John 1:14). The apostle Paul would elaborate on this idea as he told young Timothy, “The things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses, entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others” (2 Tim. 2:2).


All Christians have been summoned before the courtroom of the world. The Bible says we are not mere spectators but active participants. We testify to the truth about the Lord Jesus and His death and resurrection. John the Baptist was the voice of one calling in the desert. Our voices can be heard in our workplace, neighbourhood, church, and among our family and friends. We can be active witnesses, telling them about the reality of Jesus in our lives.
