While Walking it Out
Context: Luke 1: 1-80
Focus: Luke 1: 1-4
“Many have undertaken to draw up an account of the things that have been fulfilled among us, just as they were handed down to us by those who from the first were eyewitnesses and servants of the word. With this in mind, since I myself have carefully investigated everything from the beginning, I too decided to write an orderly account for you, most excellent Theophilus, so that you may know the certainty of the things you have been taught.”
In any investigation there must be eyewitnesses affirming the person exists or the event took place. In the case of the life of Jesus Christ there were many eye-witnesses to His life, death and resurrection. So the account in the Word of God is accurate and is the complete truth. (1 John 1: 1-4)
In the Word of God it states there has to be two or more witnesses to verify the truth. No person can be condemned or affirmed without this proof. Those closest to Jesus during the time of His life on earth were His disciples who lived with Him for three years. So their testimony is true. Luke a physician was meticulous concerning his investigation into the birth and life of Christ. But the greatest testimony and witness to the truth concerning who Jesus Christ is and was is the witness of the Holy Spirit.
When a person believes in the testimony concerning the gospel, they have confirmation it is the truth by God, Himself; for the Holy Spirit confirms it to the believer’s heart and the matter is settled and sealed. No one nor anything can rob the believer of this truth; Jesus came to save the world and by His death and resurrection all who believe have eternal life. This witness remains solid and real to all who BELIEVE.
(Deuteronomy 19:15, Deuteronomy 17:6 , 2 Corinthians 13:1
Matthew 18:16 , 1 Timothy 5:19 )
Lord, thank you for sealing the witness of your salvation to our heart, so there is no longer any need of an investigation into the person of your Son, Jesus Christ, for He dwells in us and our faith abides in Him, alone. (Ephesians 1:13)
