A taste of FAITH, a touch of LAUGHTER.
Have you seen Jesus? (April 4, 2010)
Read: John 1: 1-18, Romans 6, and 1 John 1 and 5
Have you really SEEN Jesus? Because if you have, your life will be CHANGED!
Look at what happened. These men and women actually walked and talked with Jesus, not really knowing, not really understanding completely who He really was……not knowing the miracle of resurrection that was about to take place, that they personally would WITNESS and TESTIFY to with such conviction that death, personal safety, held no fears for them. They had utter CONFIDENCE in who He was, in what He had done.
What testimony has God given YOU of His reality in YOUR life? Will others come to know Him because of your experience with Him, because you MET Him, because you walked with him through this life? Because of your certainty that He is indeed who He says He is and will do what He says He will do?
“The risen Christ is powerfully present in and through all who know Him” DB, April 4, 2010, David McCasland
1 John 1: 1-4 and 1 John 5: 1-13 “And these things we write to you, that your joy may be full” (1 John 1:4)
John tell us of the risen Christ, “that which we have SEEN, HEARD, LOOKED UPON and HANDLED (1 John 1:1) and 1 John 5:13 tells us why, “that you may KNOW that you have eternal life, this is the true GOD and eternal life” (verse 20)
John 20:31 “These things are written that you may BELIEVE that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God and that believing, you may have life in His name”
Acts 1:8 Jesus said, “…..you shall be WITNESSES to me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
1 John 5: 6, 7, and 8 “This is He who came by WATER and BLOOD-Jesus Christ; not only by water, but by water AND blood. And it is the SPIRIT who bears witness, because the Spirit is truth.”
Spirit, water and word
How we can walk in newness? By the power of the indwelling Spirit, by the washing of the water of the word (the truth of the living Word) as in Ephesians 5:26, by the blood of Christ (God in the flesh) shed for our sin.
This is a TRINITY work. Father, Son and Spirit. The complete work in us.
Have you seen Jesus?
If you have “seen” Him, you are empowered from on high to bear witness:
Walk in the power of the Spirit………..
Live in the truth of the Word……….
Trust in the efficacy of the Blood……
Testify of the reality of Christ!
