Seen and heard

June 9th, 2014

Over the last few weeks I have been reading over 1, 2 and 3 John. It is one of those times where I feel God speaking to me as I read.

He is drawing things to my attention that I am meditating on and trying to apply to my life. I have finished the books several times only to go back to the beginning again.

One thing I really noticed at the start of 1 John is the phrase “seen and heard”. John uses it several times in the start of chapter one. He is saying we have seen and heard Jesus ourselves and touched Him in the flesh.

He wants us to know he is an eye witness and he knows who Jesus is. He knows He is the Christ, the Messiah, the Son of God. He knows He is eternal and there from the beginning.

John also wanted his readers to know these things so they would have fellowship together and that their joy may be complete. We see this in verses 3 & 4.

Here are some questions for reflection and application:

What have you seen and heard about Christ in the pages of the Bible that you could tell others about?

What things could you share that would help others to find fellowship with the Father and the Son?

God Bless,
Dave
