Testify of God’s Goodness -John 1: 29-42
Key Verse: 32-34 32 Then John gave this testimony: “I saw the Spirit come down from heaven as a dove and remain on him. 33 And I myself did not know him, but the one who sent me to baptize with water told me, ‘The man on whom you see the Spirit come down and remain is the one who will baptize with the Holy Spirit.’ 34 I have seen and I testify that this is God’s Chosen One.”
Some of us have experienced God’s hand at work in our lives or in someone else’s at some point. In our lesson this week John the Baptist testified to the Glory of God resting on Jesus. Then John gave this testimony: “I saw the Spirit come down from heaven as a dove and remain on him. That must have been awesome for John to witness, he went on to testify that he knew who Jesus is; He is ‘God’s Chosen One’. Through John’s testimony Jesus gained followers, be it that they were John’s own disciples. John paved the way to allow people to find Christ. Jesus said in John 14:6 “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me”. Therefore our calling just as it was for John is to lead people to Christ because He is the way to our Heavenly Father. This makes us an important link in the chain, so testify of God’s goodness to others.
Have a blessed week
