Can I Get a Witness!
John concludes his letter about the testimony, or "witness", we have in Jesus. Jesus, through his death and resurrection, served as a witness to God's redeeming power. But still further, you and I participate in that witness as the Holy Spirit witnesses within us, and we witness in the world. Ultimately, it is the eternal life given by and through God--life that was given in abundance when the tree of life was planted and the breath of life breathed into Adam's lungs--it is this world-creating life that flows in and through us and testifies to a dying world that God is indeed redeeming all things.
