For my devotions during February and January, I was using a devotional that was written by one of our Wesleyan worship pastors, Aaron Reimer, called “Worshiping Through John : A Devotional for Praise Teams” It was written for primarily for a worship team to use through a year but Dale had downloaded on my iPad mini so I used it.
In the first couple of days of reading through John, I realized the John the Baptist’s ministry was a great example of what Christians should be doing in their world. So the next couple of weeks, we will be looking at the example of John the Baptist. The first thing that John the Baptist tells us is that we should be witness of the Light of the world.
In John 1: 6-9 we hear these words:
God sent a man, John the Baptist, to tell about the light so that everyone might believe because of his testimony. John himself was not the light; he was simply a witness to tell about the light. The one who is the true light, who gives light to everyone, was coming into the world.
We are called to tell others about the Light of the world who is Jesus Christ. We are also commanded to show the Light of the world in our lives since Christ lives in us. We should show people the way to Jesus in everything we do in our lives. No matter where we go or what we say it should be a guide to who Jesus is. We also need to let people know that we are not the Light of world; in our world there are people who have told people they are the light of the world. They have taken a lot of people down the road of destruction in the way of cults. We need to watch how our words and actions are testifying about Jesus
