Sent To Testify

I, Jesus, have sent my angel to testify these things to you for the assemblies. I am the root and the offspring of David; the Bright and Morning Star.”  Revelation 22:16  WEB

When the conversation turned to religion, things often got tense. There are always ill thoughts where the devil is at work to undermine God´s work in bringing souls close to Him. This family´s story was no different. The husband and wife got along great and respected each other´s views on almost everything. But when it came to Christ or God, the wife could not accept it. Her experience with the church had left her bitter from all the crimes committed in the name of faith. She could not see any credibility to the Bible, the miracle birth, nor to the endless number of denominations all claiming to be the only true religion. The woman had a pretty solid argument except for when she said that nobody had ever come from God to tell her He is here.

Every time the woman felt the need to say those words, her husband realized the depth of her predicament. Even though he was an imperfect messenger, he realized that this may be his purpose in life. He might have been born to bring this message to her and their children. Not only was the man placed there by powers and planning that they could not imagine, but a whole host of angels, prophets, writers, and apostles have gone before to bring God´s messages of goodwill and love to her. Whether we want to accept it or not, God sent His very own Son. He was not received entirely well either. But, the Lord has loved us and if our hearts will open towards Him and His movement in our lives, we too can experience His presence still.

Dear Lord,

Your messengers have been in Your presence. Please give their testimony power so that others may experience the joy of meeting You and finding life in Your love too, we pray!

Amen
