For 16 December 2011, Friday of 3rd week of Advent, based on John 5:33-36
You sent messengers to John, and he testified to the truth. Not that I accept such human testimony, but I say these things so that you may be saved. He was a burning and shining lamp, and you were willing to rejoice for a while in his light. But I have a testimony greater than Johnâ€™s. The works that the Father has given me to complete, the very works that I am doing, testify on my behalf that the Father has sent me.
