In this verse, the Apostle John is referring to John the Baptist, who came as a witness to testify about Jesus, the true Light. John the Baptist’s mission was to prepare people for the coming of Jesus, calling them to repentance and pointing them to the One who would bring salvation and redemption.
John the Baptist’s life and ministry serve as an example for all believers. As followers of Jesus, we are called to be witnesses of the Light, sharing the good news of Jesus Christ with those around us. Our role is to testify to Jesus’ identity as the Son of God and to help others come to faith in Him.

In what ways are you currently serving as a witness to Jesus in your daily life?
How can you grow in your ability to testify about Jesus and share the good news with others?
What are some practical steps you can take to help others come to faith in Jesus?
