This gentleman (J. A. Motyer, Old Testament scholar – pastor) passed away today at the age of 91. What a great message from John 1:12. This was also the verse that was first told to me when I was 16 years old and the verse that God used to grip my heart some 39 years ago, which led to my conversion. Years later, I should point out, I saw that verse 13 is also very important to this. But more on that later.
