"Then said they unto him, Who art thou? that we may give an answer to them that sent us. What sayest thou of thyself?" John 1:22
HOPE FOR TODAY!
Who art thou? When we wake in the morning and we ask ourselves this question in our personal quietness, while we prepare ourselves for the day we might say things like, "I'm an American or a Romanian or Chinese or other", based upon where we live, and we might say,
What might we say?...
"I'm a Director, a Manager, a Nurse, or a teacher, or another, based upon our occupation, and we might say, "I am wealthy, even rich, or middle class, or just hanging on, etc. based upon our financial status, and finally we might say, "I am healthy, fit, athletic, need to exercise more, overweight, etc, based upon our physical appearance. All of these thoughts or comments might be utilized when we look at ourselves and answer "Who art thou?" Often I am asked things like, “Who Are You?” The better question for us to ask ourselves and for others to ask of us would be,
ARE YOU READY?
"Are you ready to have an answer for, "Who art thou?"" "What sayest of thyself? John the Baptist was exceedingly ready to answer as we read in verse 23, "He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord..." What is your answer? Who art thou? Likewise, we should all have a voice to tell others about Jesus and that is "Who we are" as Christians, A voice for Jesus!
Let's keep it simple and united, we are that voice that remains in the Wilderness of this world, ready to tell the world about the great gift of salvation through Jesus Christ. Today, before you are anything else, anywhere else, remember you are first that voice for Jesus! Today if you should see the hurting harden not your heart as in the day of rebellion! Share the love of Jesus with others!
ARE YOU READY TO GIVE AN ANSWER FOR BELIEVING IN JESUS?
