"The life appeared; we have seen it and testify to it, and we proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and has appeared to us."
1 John 1:2

As believers, our lives testify to the reality of the life that appeared, Jesus. We are called not only to hear about it but to actively witness and testify through our actions and attitudes. In our relationships, workplaces, and communities, our love for Christ should be evident in the love, grace, and compassion we extend to others. The disciples’ firsthand encounter with Jesus inspires us to authentically share our experiences with Him, inviting others to discover the transformative power of His presence.

Our promise as believers to spend eternity with Christ prompts us to reevaluate our priorities. The temporary and earthly concerns that often consume our thoughts and energy pale compared to the significance of an eternal joy awaiting us in Heaven. Let us be rooted in the hope and assurance of a future eternal communion with God and to be able to confidently share that hope and encouragement with others.
