2023 Bible Advocate Theme:
“Come and See”
Jesus invited would-be disciples to “come and see” (John 1:39), and He still bids us to “come and see” today. But when we follow after Jesus, what is revealed? What do we see and experience? The BA dedicates our year to asking and answering this wonderful question. Come and see!
The six 2023 issues of the Bible Advocate will progressively delve deep to understand what Jesus wants to show us when we follow Him. Once we come and see, we encounter God in His holiness and are confronted with our sinfulness. He is life, but we are lost. We see in part, but there is more. God is love. And the fullness of His grace and truth is seen in Jesus Christ, the salvation of God.
How do we respond to such a great and good God as this? Come and see! Repent and believe. Trust and turn from sin and death to Jesus, our Savior and Lord. Serve God and neighbor in newness of life through the Holy Spirit. Come and see! God is at work saving and sanctifying. We follow to the end and see our final destination with Him forever.
That is the story. That is what we learn and experience and hope for as we follow Jesus. Join the Bible Advocate as we see our God and ourselves, together. Help us tell the wonderful story.
