“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. This one who is life itself was revealed to us, and we have seen him. And now we testify and proclaim to you that he is the one who is eternal life. He was with the Father, and then he was revealed to us.”1 John 1:1-2
The fact that we have the opportunity to serve Christ is a blessing, but now we can know him personally and recognize what he is doing in our lives. We are joined with The Spirit and The Spirit lives through us as we abide by His will before our own, killing off our selfish desires and allowing everyone who witnesses the testimony to understand and look forward to the fullness of God’s plan to be revealed, just as Christ was revealed in the days of John.
