A WORTHY TESTIMONIAL
TEXT: John 1:35-45
“Again the next day after John stood, and two of his disciples; And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God! And the two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus.” – (John 1:35-37)
Every institution of learning – whether academic or vocational training – issues a testimonial to those who have been adjudged to have satisfied all their requirements, and therefore, deserve such attestation. The testimonial is to attest that such an individual passed through a particular institution. It is never signed or issued by a person who has no personal knowledge of the individual’s educational or vocational training in that institution. Such a testimonial is also a recommendation of the holder to other peoplefor a wholehearted acceptance.
In our passage, John gave a worthy verbal testimonial of the messiahship of Jesus and that opened the way for two disciples to enter into a life-changing relationship immediately with Jesus.
Philip also issued a verbal testimonial of Jesus Christ, when he declared to Nathanael, “We have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph”. In an era when it seems that issuing an open proclamation of the messiahship of Jesus Christ is a taboo, believers in Christ must not be cowed. People find it comfortable to post all manner of things on their social media walls without shame; but they denigrate those who talk about Jesus as the only Saviour of the world.
If you have been cowed or intimidated to the point of dropping the proclamation of Jesus as the only hope for mankind, you have to repent and go back to your first love.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
Does the world see Jesus in you?
