161206This is the testimony given by John when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, “Who are you?” He confessed and did not deny it, but confessed, “I am not the Messiah.” And they asked him, “What then? Are you Elijah?” He said, “I am not.” “Are you the prophet?” He answered, “No.” Then they said to him, “Who are you? Let us have an answer for those who sent us. What do you say about yourself?” He said, “I am the voice of one crying out in the wilderness, ‘Make straight the way of the Lord,’” as the prophet Isaiah said. Now they had been sent from the Pharisees. They asked him, “Why then are you baptizing if you are neither the Messiah, nor Elijah, nor the prophet?” John answered them, “I baptize with water. Among you stands one whom you do not know, the one who is coming after me; I am not worthy to untie the thong of his sandal.” This took place in Bethany across the Jordan where John was baptizing. (John 1:19-28, NRSV)

Who are you?

I am a father, husband, pastor, musician, lover and follower of Jesus Christ. I do not always do everything right as I am a sinner, but try to live a life which shows the love Christ gave to me to all the world around me.

Who are you?

I am not Elijah. I am not John the Baptist. I am not Jesus Christ. I am merely a follower of Jesus and one who tries to show the love of God to the world.

This is John’s testimony and my testimony.

What is your testimony?

Who are you?
