Devotions from Jefferson Vann # 2399
Joh 5:31 “If I were to testify about myself, my testimony is not true.
Joh 5:32 Another one is the testifyer about me, and I know that the testimony he gives about me is true.
Joh 5:33 You sent inquirers to John, and he has testified to the truth.
Joh 5:34 I don’t welcome human testimony, but I speak of these things so that you may be saved.
Joh 5:35 John was a burning and shining lamp, and you were willing to rejoice for an hour in his light.
A few months ago, the world said goodbye to evangelist Billy Graham. He made a significant impact on us, because of his simple gospel message. John the Baptist was the world impacting evangelist of his day. He spent his life bringing people to God. When Jesus appeared, he identified him as the Lamb of God.
Jesus speaks of John’s hour. He had a limited time to make an impact on his world. He had an hour to shine. He shone brightly.
LORD, show us how to shine brightly during our hour.
