Today Reminder - 19 July 2012 (Eye witness)

My prayer for you for today is that you will know you are worshipping a living God, in Jesus name.

2 Peter 1:16-18
For we were not making up clever stories when we told you about the powerful coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. We saw His majestic splendour with our own eyes when He received honour and glory from God the Father. The voice from the majestic glory of God said to Him, "This is my dearly loved Son, who brings me great joy." We ourselves heard that voice from heaven when we were with Him on the holy mountain.

Eye witness - We saw His majestic splendour with our own eyes. Stumbling upon this verse this morning left goose bumps on my arms, Wow! Peter writes here in his second book about how we should live our lives growing in faith and he makes it clear that he will continue to remind people of these things and then he comes to this part where he talks about the second coming of our Lord and to highlight the importance of living holy lives he stops here and gives a brief eye witness account of his experience with Jesus. This is so powerful! This is Peter saying: “Look I saw Him resurrected and I saw Him being glorified and I saw His hands and feet and heard God’s voice confirming that Jesus is His beloved son.”

My dear friend, have you ever had a surprise for someone and you just can’t wait to give it to them. That amazing feeling of excitement that races through your mind as you wish time would just go faster. When I read Peter’s book I get that feeling. We have this amazing gift in Jesus Christ with this awesome confirmation of who He is and what He did and we should be bursting with excitement running around and sharing it. Why are we so short sighted? 

Jesus lives and He is alive, He is who He is and He is the son of God. Come with me today as we share this great gift and live our lives for His glory – Live because He lived, live free because He rose from the dead, live joyfully because He is the son of God, live without fear because He is alive. 

LIVE = Living In Victory Every day

Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus
