He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself. (1 John 5:10)
I keep looking, but with little success, for a distinguishing radiance in life and testimony among our evangelical Christians.
Instead of an inner witness, too many professing Christians are depending upon logical conclusions drawn from Bible texts. They have no witness of an encounter with God, no awareness of inner change!
I believe that where there is a divine act within the soul, there will be a corresponding awareness. This act of God is its own evidence: it addresses itself directly to the spiritual consciousness.
Thankfully, there are elements that are always the same among men and women who have had a personal meeting with God.
There is the compelling sense of God Himself; of His Person and of His Presence. From there on, the permanent results will be evident in the life and walk of the person touched as long as he or she lives!
