A man was on trial, and his lawyer was losing badly.

The prosecution had two lawyers.

The man told his lawyer to ask for a recess.
After a recess was granted, they went into a room.

The lawyer asked why the man wanted a recess.
The man replied, "We need another lawyer."
The lawyer asked, "Why?"

The man said, "Well, they have TWO lawyers! While one of them
is talkin' the other is thinkin'. And we need to do the SAME!"

John 1:6-7
6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light,
that all men through him might believe.

LIGHT from the WORD.

John the Baptist was given a great honor by Jesus.
Jesus said, "I say unto you, Among those that are born of women,
there is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist...."
(Luke 7:28)

And, in our text today, God gave John the Baptist ANOTHER
great honor.
He was given a title, "..a man sent from God..."!

What does a "man sent from God" DO?

FIRST, he/she (Christian) is sent to be a "witness."
A witness is someone who testifies truthfully about something he/she
has experienced.
Without having experienced something in relation to the case at hand,
a witness in court would be useless.
But having experienced something in relation to the case,
a witness' testimony is valuable!

SECOND, a Christian is sent to "bear witness" (testify) "of the LIGHT!"
Jesus is the LIGHT of the world!

By His light we see our sins exposed, and forgiveness offered.
His light illuminates our darkness and leads us to safety.

THIRD, a person sent from God (Christian) should speak
"..that all men through him might believe"!
The purpose of our witness of Christ is not only to tell of our experience
in transformation, but also to lead others to the same experience!
Definitively, we are to testify in such a manner that others will desire to
HAVE the same experience!
A "man sent from God" is to testify of how Jesus
transforms people!

Are YOU, my Christian friend, THINKIN' 'BOUT YOUR TALKIN' ?

Love ya!
