This was a short reflection written for Emmanuel Beach Missions:
1 John 1:1 (NIV) 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 concerning the Word of life.
When we talk about Jesus, it is not some fantasy or fairy story, it is evidenced by people who have met personally with Jesus, people who have touched Him as well as seeing Him. When we share about Jesus on the beach in Saundersfoot, we can share in the testimony of the early believers as well as our own story of a relationship with the ‘Word of Life’. Like the early believers, we can know Jesus, we can testify to Him and we can celebrate His abundant goodness.
Our testimonies are important, that is why it is a key part of our programme each afternoon, our testimony will enable others to see Jesus, what a wonderful thought….we are living testimonies to the Risen Christ!
