John 1:6-8, “There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. This man came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all through him might believe. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.”
A witness to the Light, who heralded the Light’s entrance into a dark world. An example for us, that we, too, announce the Light, becoming carriers of His glory, to a world in need of Him.
This testimony threatens the darkness. The more we witness of the Light, decreasing that He may increase, the more our world is illuminated with the Truth that sets people free. We are a living, breathing, moving proclamation of the Light’s redeeming, transformative power.
And the Light has commissioned us to be His witnesses. He desires that not any should perish, but all come to repentance. He came that we might have life and that more abundantly. This is what we testify to: that the Word is Truth! We bear witness that He is Light, and in Him is no darkness. In Him, Jesus Christ, we believe. By His blood, we are free, and as we testify to it, we overcome!
