Person Of Integrity-Apostle John

November 9th, 2018 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Person of Integrity from the Bible is the Apostle John.

Not all of Jesus’ disciples were martyrs for their faith. John was an exception, but he still suffered for the sake of Christ. He recalls what happened in the book of Revelation, chapter 1, verse 9.

In the New Living Translation:-“I, John, am your brother and your partner in suffering and in God’s kingdom and in the patient endurance to which Jesus calls us. I was exiled to the island of Patmos for preaching the word of God and for my testimony about Jesus.”

He might have been isolated, but he was not alone. Jesus appeared to him and told him to write in a book everything he saw and send it to seven churches. Today we have access to the book of Revelation, which states a promise of blessing to those who take the message to heart.

The faithfulness of the Apostle John to write the book of Revelation inspires us to put our eternal hope in Jesus and to live a life of Integrity.
