Mini Sermon series

by turtle :Bear Witness of the Light

April 29 Simple Sermon 2

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
(8) He was not that Light, but was sent to bear
witness of that Light.
(9) That was the true Light, which lighteth every
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 shine
forth 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,

If you like to know more about faith in Jesus do
