“How you live your life is a testimony of what you believe about God.”

Nothing is so contagious as example; and we never do any great good or evil which does not produce its like. - Francois de La Rochefoucauld: (1613 – 1680: was a noted French author)

Scripture Text: (1 JN 5:5-13)
Who indeed is the victor over the world
but the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?

This is the one who came through water and Blood, Jesus Christ,
not by water alone, but by water and Blood.
The Spirit is the one who testifies,
and the Spirit is truth.
So there are three who testify,
the Spirit, the water, and the Blood,
and the three are of one accord.
If we accept human testimony,
the testimony of God is surely greater.
Now the testimony of God is this,
that he has testified on behalf of his Son.
Whoever believes in the Son of God
has this testimony within himself.
Whoever does not believe God has made him a liar
by not believing the testimony God has given about his Son.
And this is the testimony:
God gave us eternal life,
and this life is in his Son.
Whoever possesses the Son has life;
whoever does not possess the Son of God does not have life.

I write these things to you so that you may know
that you have eternal life,
you who believe in the name of the Son of God.

How we live our daily lives as Christians is testimony and proof positive that we “possess” Christ and that he is with us each and every step of our journey through life. We must remember that Christ’s death on the cross was a gift to all of us and a gift we never want to lose possession of. We need to remember his gift in our thoughts, words and deeds, in hopes of making it more “tangible” to us and to cherish this wonderful — yet oh so intangible — gift.
