Tuesday, First Week of Advent
John 1:35-42 (NRSV)
This passage of scripture has always been one of my favorite as someone who is deeply committed to evangelism!
I love the declarations, "Look! Here is the Lamb of God!" and "We have found the Messiah."
During this season of Advent, as we watch and pray, calming heart and spirit, as we await the "coming" of our Lord's birthday, it is incumbent upon us, as Christians to boldly declare CHRIST within our spheres of influence.
It is clear beyond a shadow of a doubt how much we all need Jesus. In a world torn asunder by hate, violence, poverty, financial downturn, and environmental disaster, we all desperately need the salvation offered by Jesus Christ our Lord.
In a world filled with darkness, we can reflect the light of Christ to our neighbors, friends, co-workers, family members, and even our enemies. We can be role models regarding how to live in love, joy, peace, and hope. We can make a difference by walking in Love...
Today, won't you declare with boldness, "Look! Here is the Lamb of God!"?
Let's pray: Ah! Holy God! How awesome it is to behold you in the beauty of holiness. Thank you that Jesus is the Lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world. Thank you for his life, death on the cross, and glorious resurrection on the third day. Please help me to boldly declare Messiah, today and always. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
