OUR DAILY BREAD 2023 DEVOTIONAL WAS WRITTEN BY OUR DAILY BREAD MINISTRIES
Our Daily Bread Devotional, 22nd Of May 2023
TOPIC: Tell the Story
TEXT: We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also may have fellowship with us. 1 John 1:3
TODAY’S SCRIPTURE & INSIGHT: 1 John 1:1–4
BIBLE IN A YEAR: 1 Chronicles 16–18, John 7:28–53
But consider that the apostle John was present at four of history’s most crucial events: the last supper of Jesus, Christ’s agony in Gethsemane, His crucifixion, and His resurrection. John knew that bearing witness to these events was the ultimate why behind his presence in these moments. In John 21:24, he wrote, “This is the disciple who testifies to these things and who wrote them down. We know that his testimony is true.”
John reaffirmed this in his letter of 1 John. He wrote, “That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked at and our hands have touched—this we proclaim” (1:1). John felt a compelling duty to share his eyewitness account of Jesus. Why? “We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard,” he said, “so that you also may have fellowship with us” (v. 3).
The events of our lives may be surprising or mundane, but in either case God is orchestrating them so we can bear witness to Him. As we rest in the grace and wisdom of Christ, may we speak for Him in even life’s surprising moments.
REFLECT & PRAY:-
What are some of the more surprising aspects of your faith story? How will you share your story with someone who needs to hear of God’s love?
Jesus, please help me be sensitive to those times when I can share with others how much You love us.
PRAYER OF SALVATION
Please say this pray
I come to You Lord Jesus. I admit that I am a sinner, and I want to be right with You. I ask You to forgive me of all my sins. Wash me away from all unrighteousness and cleanse me clean Today. The Bible says if I confess with my mouth that “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in my heart that God raised me.
Thank you for saying that prayer, you are in CHRIST now, Old things have passed AWAY………….HALLELUYAH
