Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
3 John 1:11
Dear friend, do not imitate what is evil but what is good. Anyone who does what is good is from God. Anyone who does what is evil has not seen God.
In this passage, John the Evangelist (or Apostle) likens the way we live to what we have experienced in knowing God. When he talks about Seeing God, he is actually speaking about Experiencing God. So if we’ve experienced God, we will operate in GOODNESS. If we have not experienced God, EVIL will be our practice.
The truth is, “We IMITATE What We Have EXPERIENCED.” Knowing God means we have experienced the wonderful Goodness of God and now know how to live and please Him. For those who have yet to know the Lord, they have no reference point for Goodness. They are left to live life on their own. A life without Jesus relegates us to operating only from our lower nature, which is rooted in selfishness and sin. The mission of every “Follower Of Jesus” has always been to introduce everyone we know to Jesus. Because, “We IMITATE What We Have EXPERIENCED.”
Help me today to introduce people to Jesus, so they will know the best way to live and have eternal life. Amen
