As we conclude our study of the impact statement: God wants us to walk, work and worship with divine clarity and a growing relationship with Him while we live in the midst of human ambiguity and ambivalence, let’s take a final look at the example of the apostle John. He begins 1st John: “That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have looked at, and our hands have touched...The life appeared; we have seen it and testify to it, and we proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and has appeared to us. We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ. We write this to make our joy complete.” This could be translated, “your joy.” Clearly John had an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ during the three years of Christ’s earthly ministry. What he wrote here, over fifty years later, affirms he had maintained that intimate relationship. In fact, it was so dynamic he wanted others to enjoy what he had. Remember, God wants us to walk, work and worship with divine clarity and a growing relationship with Him while we live in the midst of human ambiguity and ambivalence. Why is this important? It’s the only antidote to the ambiguity and ambivalence so many find themselves in. When we live out this impact statement others will notice and ask us a reason for the hope we have. What a platform for explaining the Gospel.
