That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, concerning the Word of life-The life was manifested, and we have seen, and bear witness, and declare to you that eternal life which was with the Father and was manifested to us-That which was seen and heard we declare to you, that you also may have fellowship with us; and truly our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ. And these we write to you that your joy may be full. 1 John 1:1-4 NKJV
The Ancient of Ages came to the earth to speak, be seen and touched by men women and children. His Words brought life to those who believed and all who would believe through their testimony.
A simple fisherman touched eternity. The Son of God walked the earth just as we do. John saw Jesus just as we see each other. John was a faithful witness that Almighty God gives eternal life to all who call upon Him out of a sincere desire to know Him!
Jesus revealed Himself to John in the most miraculous ways. John loved Jesus deeply. John was closer to Jesus than any of the other disciples. Why was their relationship so special? Their relationship was special because they both wanted it to be special!
God revealed Himself to me in amazing ways. I received dreams and visions. The Holy Spirit came upon me in miraculous ways. God did things so incredible I don’t even talk about them. I wouldn’t know what to say. I don’t even fully understand what happened.
After a heart-breaking season of trial and triumph I dreamed I was in a king’s castle. I was there because the king and I were friends. A voice spoke out of the darkness. The Lord said, “Now I know you are my friend!”
Jesus said His friends obey His commands. He told the disciples He would not call them servants any longer. A servant does not know what his master is doing. He would call them friends because He made known to them all the things He heard from His Father.
Jesus is inviting you to join in the fellowship He has with the Father. He wants your relationship with Him to be special and unique. He wants you to join the Apostle John and all the saints who lived throughout the centuries in beautiful fellowship.
You can love Jesus as much and as deeply as you want! The width and depth and height of His love is so great it surpasses human understanding!
Are you a friend of Jesus? You can be. The choice is yours. Nothing in the heavens above or on the earth below can prevent Jesus from loving you Perfectly, unconditional and eternally!
If you are not a friend of Jesus call upon Him out of a sincere desire to know Him. Jesus will reveal Himself to you in ways that are as unique and special as His love for you!
Be a faithful witness of God’s great love for us!
