We all receive the testimony of men. The testimony of God is far greater. If we receive the testimony of men we should receive the testimony of God. God has testified that Jesus is the Christ the savior of the world and that we have eternal life in Jesus Christ.

GOD’S TESTIMONY SHOULD AFFECT YOUR LIFE • TO RECEIVE A TESTIMONY WE TRUST IT, WE BELIEVE IT, WE HAVE FAITH IN IT • JOHN SAYS; THE ONE WHO BELIEVES IN THE SON OF GOD HAS THE TESTIMONY IN HIMSELF; • WHEN WE BELIEVE IN THE SON OF GOD, • WE HAVE RECEIVED GOD’S TESTIMONY ABOUT JESUS CHRIST • AND JOHN SAYS WE NOW HAVE THIS TESTIMONY IN US • OUR FAITH, OUR BELIEF IS AN AFFIRMATION OF GOD’S TESTIMONY • WHEN WE WALK WITH CHRIST OUR FAITH IS DISPLAYED • WHEN WE LOVE OTHERS, CARE FOR THEM SERVE OTHERS • OUR FAITH IS DISPLAYED AND THIS AFFIRMS GOD’S TESTIMONY ABOUT CHRIST • WHEN WE KNOW OUR ETERNAL DESTINY IS SECURE • WHEN WE LIVE LIKE WE ARE GOING TO HEAVEN • WE ARE DISPLAYING THE TRUTH OF GOD’S TESTIMONY TO THE WORLD A YOUNG BOY ASKED HIS GRAND FATHER TO EXPLAIN THE GRACE OF JESUS. • THE GRAND FATHER TOOK A PILE OF LEAVES AND AN EARTH WORM. • HE LAID THE WORM IN THE LEAVES AND SET THE LEAVES ON FIRE— • AT THE LAST MINUTE HE LIFTED IT OUT AND SAID, • “THAT IS THE WAY JESUS SAVED ME!” • KNOWING THAT JESUS SAVED YOU IS PART OF GOD’S TESTIMONY IN US • BUT THERE IS ANOTHER WAY THAT WE HAVE THE TESTIMONY OF GOD IN US… • EACH AND EVERY PERSON WHO HAS RECEIVED GOD’S TESTIMONY • HAS THE HOLY SPIRIT INDWELLING HIM • AND JOHN HAD JUST SAID THAT THE SPIRIT TESTIFIED ABOUT CHRIST • AND THAT TESTIMONY OF THE SPIRIT IS IN US • WHEN WE YIELD TO THE HOLY SPIRIT, LET HIM GUIDE AND DIRECT US • WHEN WE ALLOW HIM TO CONVICT US OF OUR SINS • WE ARE LEANING ON, TRUSTING IN THAT WITNESS OF GOD THAT IS IN US • BUT, WHAT ABOUT THOSE WHO NEVER RECEIVED GOD’S TESTIMONY • WHAT ABOUT WHEN GOD’S TESTIMONY IS REJECTED • THE ONE WHO RECEIVES GOD’S TESTIMONY • HAS THE TESTIMONY IN HIMSELF, BUT • THE ONE WHO DOES NOT BELIEVE GOD HAS MADE HIM A LIAR, • THERE IS NO MIDDLE GROUND HERE • IT IS NOT LIKE YOU CAN SLIGHTLY REJECT JUST PART OF GOD’S TESTIMONY • AND HAVE A TINY BIT OF ETERNAL LIFE. • YOU EITHER RECEIVE THE TESTIMONY, TRUST IN CHRIST AS YOUR SAVIOR • AND HAVE ETERNAL LIFE • OR YOU REJECT IT AND YOU HAVE CALLED GOD A LIAR • BUT SOMEONE MIGHT SAY “HOW DID I CALL GOD A LIAR” • WELL JOHN SAY HE CALLED GOD A LIAR • BECAUSE HE HAS NOT BELIEVED IN THE TESTIMONY THAT GOD HAS GIVEN CONCERNING HIS SON. • GOD HAS BEEN VERY CLEAR ABOUT WHO JESUS CHRIST IS • GOD FILLED THE OLD TESTAMENT WITH PROPHESIES • ABOUT HIS BIRTH, HIS LIFE AND HIS DEATH • GOD FILLED THE GOSPELS WITH THE MIRACLES OF CHRIST • WHICH ATTESTED TO WHO CHRIST WAS • GOD FILLS THE WORLD WITH THE IMPACT OF CHRISTIANS • WHO GIVE THEIR LIVES TO HELP OTHERS, VAST CHRISTIAN CHARITIES • MISSIONARIES, FOLKS DIGGING WATER WELLS, • SENDING MEDICAL TEAMS ALL OVER THE WORLD…. • TO REJECT GOD’S TESTIMONY ABOUT CHRIST • IS TO SAY THAT GOD LIED IN ALL THOSE THINGS • TO REJECT THE TESTIMONY IS TO DENY THE TRUTHFULNESS OF GOD • AND YET OUR WORLD IS FULL OF PEOPLE DOING JUST THIS • THE MOMENT I TRUST SOME SELFHELP BOOK • ABOUT HOW TO LIVE MY LIFE WHEN IT CONTRADICTS THE BIBLE • I HAVE CALLED GOD A LIAR AND SOME HUMAN HAS REPLACED GOD • THE POINT AT WHICH SOMEONE CHANGES THEIR PLANS FOR THE DAY • BASED ON THEIR HOROSCOPE THEY HAVE CALLED GOD A LIAR • WHEN WE REDEFINE THE MOMENT LIFE BEGINS • TO SUIT A POLITICAL AGENDA, WE HAVE CALLED GOD A LIAR • AND POLITICS HAS REPLACED GOD • TRUSTING ANYONE OR ANYTHING THAT CONTRADICTS GOD IS CALLING GOD A LIAR…. • WE NEED TO TRUST, LEAN ON, DEPEND ON, HAVE FAITH IN • THE TESTIMONY OF GOD 1 JOHN 5:11–12 AND THE TESTIMONY IS THIS, THAT GOD HAS GIVEN US ETERNAL LIFE, AND THIS LIFE IS IN HIS SON. HE WHO HAS THE SON HAS THE LIFE; HE WHO DOES NOT HAVE THE SON OF GOD DOES NOT HAVE THE LIFE. GOD’S TESTIMONY IS THAT HE HAS GIVEN US ETERNAL LIFE • THE BIBLE IS FILLED WITH THE TESTIMONY OF GOD • ALL OF THIS TESTIMONY IS IMPORTANT • ALL OF THIS TESTIMONY IS USEFUL, HELPFUL IN LIFE • BUT THE SPECIFIC TESTIMONY OF GOD THAT JOHN POINTS US TO • IS VITAL, IT IS CRITICAL, OUR UNDERSTANDING OF THIS ONE • PIECE OF GOD’S TESTIMONY DETERMINES OUR ETERNAL DESTINY • JOHN STATES THAT THE CONTENT OF THIS TESTIMONY IS • THAT GOD HAS GIVEN US ETERNAL LIFE, AND THIS LIFE IS IN HIS SON. • THERE ARE TWO KEY THINGS BEING SAID HERE • ONE IS THAT GOD HAS GIVEN US ETERNAL LIFE • WE CANNOT EARN ETERNAL LIFE • WE CANNOT GET ETERNAL LIFE ON OUR OWN • GOD HAS GIVEN IT TO US • PAUL MAKES THIS SAME CONCEPT CLEAR WHEN HE WRITES EPHESIANS 2:8–9 FOR BY GRACE YOU HAVE BEEN SAVED THROUGH FAITH; AND THAT NOT OF YOURSELVES, IT IS THE GIFT OF GOD; NOT AS A RESULT OF WORKS, SO THAT NO ONE MAY BOAST. • THE SECOND THING IN THIS TESTIMONY • IS THAT ETERNAL LIFE IS IN GOD’S SON, JESUS CHRIST • JESUS HIMSELF HAD TESTIFIED TO THIS WHEN HE SAID JOHN 14:6 JESUS SAID TO HIM, “I AM THE WAY, AND THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE; NO ONE COMES TO THE FATHER BUT THROUGH ME. • HOW WE RESPOND TO THESE TWO FACTS DECIDES WHERE WE SPEND ETERNITY • DO WE RECEIVE THIS TESTIMONY THAT GOD • HAS GIVEN US ETERNAL LIFE THROUGH JESUS CHRIST? • OR DO WE REJECT THIS TESTIMONY? (PAUSE) • BECAUSE GOD’S TESTIMONY DEFINES WHO YOU ARE • HOW WE RESPOND TO GOD’S TESTIMONY • NOT ONLY DEFINES YOUR ETERNAL DESTINY • IT DEFINES WHO YOU ARE IN THIS LIFE • IF YOU ACCEPT GOD’S TESTIMONY ABOUT JESUS • THEN YOU WILL LIVE DIFFERENTLY IN THIS LIFE • JOHN SAYS; HE WHO HAS THE SON HAS THE LIFE; • DID YOU NOTICE HE DOES NOT SAY WILL HAVE THE LIFE • HE SAYS HAS THE LIFE, AS IN HAS IT NOW • IF WE HAVE THE LIFE NOW AND WE KNOW WE HAVE THE LIFE NOW • WE WILL LIVE LIKE WE HAVE THE LIFE. • WE WILL DO ALL THESE THINGS JOHN HAS BEEN TALKING ABOUT • WALK IN THE LIGHT, CONFESS OUR SINS • REPENT AND CHANGE HOW WE LIVE • UNCONDITIONALLY, SACRIFICIALLY CARE FOR AND SERVE ONE ANOTHER • ABIDE IN, WALK WITH, JESUS CHRIST • THIS IS WHAT IT MEANS TO HAVE THE LIFE NOW WHEN NATIVE PEOPLE OF MADAGASCAR • WERE PRESENTED FOR BAPTISM, • IT WAS OFTEN ASKED OF THEM, • “WHAT FIRST LED YOU TO THINK OF BECOMING A CHRISTIAN?” • THE ANSWER WAS USUALLY THE CHANGE THEY SAW IN OTHERS • WHO HAD BECOME CHRISTIANS • “I KNEW THIS MAN TO BE A THIEF; THAT ONE WAS A DRUNKARD; • ANOTHER WAS VERY CRUEL AND UNKIND TO HIS FAMILY. • NOW THEY ARE ALL CHANGED. • THE THIEF IS AN HONEST MAN; THE DRUNKARD IS SOBER AND RESPECTABLE; • AND THE OTHER IS GENTLE AND KIND IN HIS HOME. • THEY WOULD SAY. • THERE MUST BE SOMETHING IN A RELIGION THAT CAN WORK SUCH CHANGES.”….. • IF WE TRUST IN THE TESTIMONY OF GOD • IF WE RECEIVE GOD’S TESTIMONY • THAT HE HAS GIVEN US ETERNAL LIFE IN HIS SON JESUS CHRIST • WE WILL CHANGE, GROW, BE CONFORMED TO THE LIKENESS OF CHRIST • THIS IS WHY GOD’S TESTIMONY MUST BE PROCLAIMED • THOSE WHO HAVE RECEIVED GOD’S TESTIMONY HAVE ETERNAL LIFE • BUT JOHN SAYS HE WHO DOES NOT HAVE THE SON OF GOD DOES NOT HAVE THE LIFE. • ANYONE WHO HAS NOT TRUSTED IN JESUS CHRIST AS THEIR SAVIOR • DOES NOT HAVE ETERNAL LIFE • MOST OF THE WORLD IS VERY OFFENDED BY THIS IDEA • EVEN MANY CHRISTIANS DO NOT AGREE WITH THIS STATEMENT • A POLL DONE BY BAYLOR UNIVERSITY FOUND THAT 69% OF • CHRISTIANS THAT REGULARLY ATTEND CHURCH THINK EVERYONE GOES TO HEAVEN • A SIMILAR POLL FOUND THAT 70% OF THOSE • WHO ATTEND CHURCH ONE OR MORE TIMES A MONTH • HAVE NEVER SHARED THEIR FAITH WITH A STRANGER • I THINK THESE TWO THINGS ARE RELATED • THE REASON MANY PEOPLE NEVER SHARE THEIR FAITH • IS BECAUSE THEY REJECT GOD’S TESTIMONY • THAT HE WHO DOES NOT HAVE THE SON OF GOD DOES NOT HAVE THE LIFE. • WHEN WE UNDERSTAND THE FACT THAT ONLY THOSE • WHO HAVE TRUSTED IN JESUS CHRIST AS THEIR SAVOIR HAVE ETERNAL LIFE • WE WILL UNDERSTAND THE IMPORTANCE OF SHARING THE GOSPEL MESSAGE • THE ONE WHO WANTS TO BE POLITE • WHO DOES NOT WANT TO OFFENDED ANYONE • SO THEY KEEP THE GOOD NEWS TO THEM SELF • THEY WILL UNDERSTAND WHAT IS ACTUALLY AT STAKE • AND WILL BE WILLING TO SPEAK GOD’S TRUTH • EVEN IF SOME WILL BE OFFENDED BY IT… LET’S SAY YOU ARE STANDING BESIDE SOMEONE AT A PICNIC WHO HAPPENS TO BE STANDING • IN A FIRE-ANT MOUNT THEY ARE IN THE MIDDLE OF TELLING A STORY • NOW IT WOULD BE RUDE TO INTERRUPT THEIR STORY • BUT THE FACT THAT THEY ARE STANDING IN A FIRE-ANT MOUNT • CHANGES THE SITUATION, IT WOULD BE UTTERLY IMPOLITE TO NOT • POINT OUT THAT THEY ARE STANDING IN A FIRE-ANT MOUNT. • INTERRUPT THEM, POINT OUT THAT WHAT THEY ARE STANDING IN…. • KEEPING THE GOSPEL TO YOUR SELF • BECAUSE YOU DO NOT WANT TO OFFEND SOMEONE • IS MASSIVELY IMPOLITE, IT IS ACTUALLY STAGGERINGLY RUDE… • THEY ARE STANDING IN SOMETHING FAR WORSE THAN A FIRE-ANT MOUND • GOD HAS PROVIDED ONE WAY, ONE MEANS, FOR US TO • ENTER INTO AN ETERNAL RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM • FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST AS SAVIOR, THAT HE DIED ON THE CROSS • TO PAY FOR OUR SINS • WHEN WE KNOW THIS TO BE TRUE • WHEN WE RECEIVE THE TESTIMONY OF GOD • WE WILL TELL THE GOSPEL TO • ALL WHO HAVE NOT RECEIVED THIS TESTIMONY EVERY DAY WE ARE PRESENTED THE TESTIMONY OF MEN • EVERY TIME WE ACT ON WHAT SOMEONE HAS TOLD US • WE HAVE RECEIVED THE TESTIMONY OF MEN • IF WE RECEIVE THE TESTIMONY OF MEN • WE SHOULD CERTAINLY RECEIVE THE TESTIMONY OF GOD • GOD WHO IS NOT JUST GREATER THAN MEN • BUT, GOD WHO IS HOLY, RIGHTEOUS • GOD WHO IS ALL KNOWING, ALL LOVING, ALL PRESENT • GOD’S HAS TESTIFIED ABOUT JESUS CHRIST • GOD TESTIFIED ABOUT CHRIST IN THE PROPHECIES • THAT TOLD OF HIS BIRTH, LIFE, DEATH, AND RESURRECTION. • GOD HAS TESTIFIED ABOUT CHRIST THROUGH • THE MIRACLES CHRIST PREFORMED IN HIS LIFE • AND BY CHRIST’S RESURRECTION AND ASCENSION TO HEAVEN • GOD HAS TESTIFIED ABOUT CHRIST IN THE LIVES • OF CHRISTIANS FOR THE LAST 2000 YEARS • ANYONE WHO RECEIVES THIS TESTIMONY • AND PLACES THEIR FAITH AND TRUST IN JESUS CHRIST • HAS BEEN GIVEN THE GIFT OF ETERNAL LIFE • ANYONE HOW HAS NOT RECEIVED THIS TESTIMONY • HAS CALLED GOD A LIAR AND DOES NOT HAVE ETERNAL LIFE • IF THERE IS ANYONE HERE WHO HAS NOT RECEIVED THIS TESTIMONY • IN A MOMENT I AM GOING TO PRAY …… 95
