John 21 v 24-25
“This is the disciple who testifies to these things and who wrote them down. We know that his testimony is true. Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written.”
I commenced blogging on John’s gospel on December 22nd.
So much has happened since then.
It has been a wonderful journey of slowly crawling through this gospel trying to savour all that John has written. Over 5 months of daily meditating on the truth that Jesus spoke, the signs that He delivered and understanding that the most important truth is that Jesus the Word became flesh and lived amongst us. Jesus showed us how to do this life. He has sent us all out as missionaries into this world.
But here is the truth of these end verses: sent by Jesus in the power of the Spirit to create more stories of Jesus.
John ends prophetically whether he knew it or not.
The world does not have enough books to recall all that God has done across the world.
Today there will be more Jesus stories on every continent and every nation of the world.
Today is day 3 of the Elim Africa prayer and fasting week. Leaders from 20 nations of the world have been uniting in prayer for one another knowing that God has not finished yet! He is still writing!
Since December 22nd there have been people from 58 nations of the world that have been reading through these blogs. That is a huge encouragement to me of course. But the point is in those 58 nations Jesus is creating new stories as His followers continue to lay their lives down for the gospel.
May we all continue to do so until He comes!
What story can be created in you today? He has finished writing your story. How amazing is that?!
