TOPIC: WITNESSING FOR JESUS
TEXT: John 5: 31-38(KJV)
5:31. If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true.
5:32. There is another that beareth witness of me; and I know that the witness which he witnesseth of me is true.
5:33. Ye sent unto John, and he bare witness unto the truth.
5:34. But I receive not testimony from man: but these things I say, that ye might be saved.
5:35. He was a burning and a shining light: and ye were willing for a season to rejoice in his light.
5:36. But I have greater witness than that of John: for the works which the Father hath given me to finish, the same works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me.
5:37. And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape.
5:38. And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he hath sent, him ye believe not.
Anglican Daily Fountain 6th February 2024 STUDY:
In the Jewish legal system, one could not testify on his own behalf alone. Two or more witnesses were needed to testify about that person (Deut.17:6; Numb. 35:30). Jesus provides three pieces of evidence that testify about who He claims to be or what He claims to do. John the Baptist testified of Him (John 5:33). People observed the miraculous works He did (John 5:36). The father testified of Him (John 5:37; Mark 1:11). The unbelief of the Jews concerning Jesus is an evidence that they lacked the word of God in their lives.
The testimony of two or three persons is enough for something to be established. The three testimonies referred to Jesus in the passage suggest that He is actually the Son of God. Do you have a testimony about Jesus? Has He done anything special in your life, family, church or nation?Witness for Jesus at all times. Testify of His love, care, sacrifice and salvation in your life. What type of testimony do people have about you?Do you create time to witness for Christ to your friends, relatives and associates? Share the good news with someone today!
PRAYER: O Lord, fill me with your Spirit so that I may be bold to witness for Christ today.
