One Of Many Voices

“Who are you?”  John 1:19-28   I’m just a nobody, trying to tell everybody about somebody who can save anybody. This is the title and chorus from a song released by The Williams Brothers “Blessed” Album in 1985. When I read today’s lectionary reading this phrase immediately came to mind. We often think that evangelism is something that requires us to be special in some way. But God only asks us to be a voice for the Gospel, and share the good news about Christ. Since Paul assures us that we have already been crowned with God’s glory and honor, there is nothing that humankind can do for us that God has not already ordained in our lives to do. And although we do not yet see everything from where we are right now, we do see Jesus (Hebrews 2:1-10). We are the voices. All we have to do is use whatever gifts God has given us to express it.

  1. I LOVE this message! Our confidence is not in ourselves, but in the God who redeemed us–and is transforming us everyday. Christ in us–“I can do all things through Christ…” God bless you today–love, sis Caddo
