What we have seen and heard we proclaim to
you also, that you also may have fellowship with us; and indeed our fellowship
is with the Father, and with His Son Jesus Christ. 1 John
Echoes, echoes everywhere. Whatever is popular, whatever works,
whatever seems like a revelation of our Lord Jesus is proclaimed by so
many today. Echoing what they have not experienced. Why is that? Is it
because many of the voices speaking forth are not sharing
Him whom they have seen and heard, instead talking about Him
whom others know?
I have worked with men who had listened to so many tapes of well known
bible teachers that they talked like them, with the same mannerisms, using
the same catchy phrases, repeating the same truths that were taught by
these renowned, godly teachers. Many times they even proclaimed
these truths as their own. Imitations of the real thing. Dont settle
for thatin yourself or those who minister to you.
Personal relationship with the Living God is for all those who call upon
His name with their heart. No philosophers will see Him. No theorists
will hear Him. No one with a personal agenda will have fellowship with
Him. Yet, He is always waiting with arms wide open for these and for you
and for mefor everyoneif we will but cry out to Him from a
broken and contrite heart.
The peoples of this earth are waiting for true disciples of Jesus Christ.
Men and women who have seen and heard, men and women who have
intimate, spiritual, relationship with Him. Sons and daughters who know
their Dad. It will cost you everything that you value in this world. Will
you be one of these? If so, you will become a vessel of honor that proclaims
the True One and sets hearts on fire in search of Him. And everyone who
seeks shall surely find Him!
Will you be one of these?
