On the church calendar, these days until Pentecost are the Easter season. If you enjoyed one or two of my Holy Week blogs, maybe you will like to journey into this new season with me? We’ll be meditating on 1 John 1:1-4 … Here is the Contemporary English Version …
The Word that gives life was from the beginning, and this is the one our message is about. Our ears have heard, our own eyes have seen, and our hands touched this Word.
2The one who gives life appeared! We saw it happen, and we are witnesses to what we have seen. Now we are telling you about this eternal life that was with the Father and appeared to us. 3We are telling you what we have seen and heard, so that you may share in this life with us. And we share in it with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ. 4We are writing to tell you these things, because this makes us truly happy.
Our eyes saw, our ears heard, our hands touched – the risen Savior, Jesus, John says.
But you and I, when we are walking so closely with Christ that we hear His voice, I believe we have the same experience! We “see” Him in our spirit because we know Him so well we begin to sense His voice, his mannerisms, His “appearance” when we commune with Him!
What a wonder! Get ready for a joyful Easter season as we meditate on a powerful passage that I believe is going to blow us away … and bring us closer and closer to the resurrected Savior.
