“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. All things were created through him, and apart from him not one thing was created that has been created. In him was life, and that life was the light of men. That light shines in the darkness, and yet the darkness did not overcome it. There was a man sent from God whose name was John. He came as a witness to testify about the light, so that all might believe through him. He was not the light, but he came to testify about the light. The true light that gives light to everyone, was coming into the world. He was in the world, and the world was created through him, and yet the world did not recognize him. He came to his own, and his own people did not receive him. But to all who did receive him, he gave them the right to be children of God, to those who believe in his name, who were born, not of natural descent, or of the will of the flesh, or of the will of man, but of God. The Word became flesh and dwelt among us. We observed his glory, the glory as the one and only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.” John 1:1-14 CSB
Can you imagine walking the earth with Christ? Can you imagine what it would have been like to talk to Him, see Him preform miracles, and watch him love people that no one else was willing to even look at? John was able to do just that.
John’s testimony is so important to us. He tells us about Jesus’ life and ministry. John tells us about Christ’s life and ministry so that we can believe in Jesus as the Son of God just like he did. He wrote the letter he did so that we that read it might believe as well.
Are you confident in Christ being the Son of God? I believe that we can be confident in Christ being the Son of God but often we are content with just being pretty sure because we were told to be. We can see from how John started his letter that he wasn’t just pretty sure. He was confident. Let’s get to that point as well if we aren’t already.
Too often in Christianity we just believe because our parents or a friend told us to believe. We don’t dig in for ourselves and actually find out if Christ truly is the Son of God. I would encourage you to take sometime today looking at the evidences for Christ being the Son of God. I am confident that you will find the truth!
