“We proclaim to you the one who existed from the beginning, whom we have heard and seen. We saw him with our own eyes and touched him with our own hands. He is the Word of life.” (1 John 1:1, NLT)
This morning I am grateful that The Church was founded on facts – not a fable or some good thoughts that the disciples developed for people to feel good for all the ages to come. They Investigated and Interrogated Jesus for themselves. They saw with their own eyes, and touched with their own hands, and experienced everything firsthand. They were firsthand witnesses to all that transpired.
They could not contain themselves as they realized Jesus was prophesy fulfilled. He was the One. The Only One.
As they heard, they believed and they didn’t just believe for themselves. They Invested their lives to getting the Truth out among the people so that one day I may also believe.
“So faith comes from hearing, that is, hearing the Good News about Christ.” (Romans 10:17, NLT)
As I hear God’s Word, I pray that my faith would also grow, increasing more and more. And one day, when my life is over, I will then see with my own eyes and touch with my own hands the very One who is The Way, The Truth, and The Life. I will see, face to face, the One who is the great “I Am“.
