404. The testimony of God
John tells us:
“If we accept human testimony, the testimony of God is surely greater. Now the testimony of God is this, that he has testified on behalf of his Son.” 1 John, chapter 5, verse 9
The testimonies are multiple. When a team wins in hockey, we value, in the newspapers, the effort and commitment of the players. When there is a traffic accident, the witnesses say what they saw.
When people go on a visit to a natural environment that is breathtaking, they are in front of something different. Nature raises our spirit, it isn’t invented by humans. Nature is there, simply, with its beauties, its colours, its diversity of species.
Another adventure, another testimony comes to disrupt the course of history. That of the Creator to Moses, who calls himself “I am”, God. Then the evangelists and many other people testified about Jesus and this continues today. Each person’s testimony will reveal one aspect or another of what they have seen and heard. Our testimony of faith reminds us that God is always there, present with us and continues to Love us.
