And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. (1 John 5:11)
For The Record
In a court of law one of the most important parts of trial is the testimony or evidence presented. Yesterday we talked about the joy of the coming of Christ and this is because there is a testimony that is the promised by the Father. Unlike the proceedings of law today there is only one testimony and one witness. Standing alone it declares the nature of God. The joy of Jesus’ return is based upon ONE event, ONE promise, ONE salvation and ONE way. Eternal life is in Jesus Christ – case closed.
No other scheme of salvation can be effectual; God has provided none other, and in such a case a man’s invention must be vain. (Adam Clarke)
