John 1:15 (NIVUK)
John testified concerning him. He cried out, saying, “This is the one I spoke about when I said, ‘He who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me.’ “
I’m writing this on Wednesday with the Holocaust Memorial programme in the background, people sharing their experiences and beliefs so that the next generation can know and learn. To many Jews of that generation, this is a vital calling.
In today’s verse another Jew, John, also has an experience and belief to pass on, this time not of dire circumstances, but of the great news of liberation and salvation through Jesus.
What have we to share? What story do we want to pass on?
Lord, give us to the chance to say ‘this is the man I was talking about!’
