Mini Sermon Series: Simple Sermon 2:
Bear Witness Of The LIght

by christina farris

John 1:6-14 KJV
6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.
8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.
9 That was the true Light, which lighteth ever man that cometh into the world.
10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

Some of the most powerful words in scripture is the part of the word of God becoming something.God said let there be and what God said let there be it was. For example Let there be light and there was light. Now if we said let there be light and light came, then I have to wonder with this technology if the light switch was voice activated. However when God created it was by voice activation and not technology. Now with this said, God said let there be and it was. God went a step further when He said let the word become flesh and it became the only begotten Son of God full of grace and truth. It is simple to understand this concept when we think of Mary. Mary used the simple words be it as is according to the scripture. The angel spoke the word of God according to how it would happen. Yet scripture prophesy had already revealed the prophesy of the Virgin birth long ago.

God bore witness of the light by revealing himself to man. He used prophets to share the light of His word. Yet it was not enough for even those chosen by Him to believe Him. So He sent forth His Son born of Virgin that all people might believe. Not just His people but those who never received Him as Lord. However before Christ came in the flesh there was another prophesy spoke to the Priest Zachariah. An angel told Zachariah he would have a son who would be a forerunner of Christ. This does not seem unusual but John the Baptist would fulfill the prophesy in scripture, concerning the forerunner of the Messiah. His purpose was to bear witness of the Messiah so all people might believe. He would be a preacher of repentance. Today evangelist in our land preach repentances before Christ comes alive in a new believers heart. Evangelist bears witness of who Jesus is. Just like Christ commands us all to share the gospel. If we do not bear witness of the light of God, God will do so. His word is sent to light the path of every man, yet some reject the light of God. The light of God is the word of God. Christ being the word of God in the flesh came as the light of God to shineforth in the world of who God is and to bring us back into relationship with Him.

Without the light of Christ spiritually we are living in darkness to the truth of God. With the truth of the Word of God coming into our lives through preaching and teaching, the Word of God is revealed as truth. Christ came in the flesh to speak truth in the world. However the world does not receive truth, it prefers the lies and gossip. However in all truth Jesus came and spoke truth of His Father. Living in truth and doing the will of God. Do you desire truth or do you desire the lies of the world. To desire to know God and His Son is to desire truth. Decide today whether you want to receive the light of Jesus into your heart. If you so desire to know.Jesus pray this prayer with me.

Dear Heavenly Father I come to you believing in faith that Jesus died for my sins. I ask that you forgive me of my sins and I receive Jesus as payment for my sins. In Jesus precious name, Amen.
