Encouragement for your daily walk with God
I long to be a witness for Christ. How about you, dear Christ follower? The best book I’ve read to learn how to be a witness is the Bible, and the best example of a witness is Christ. It’s not that I learned “techniques” of witnessing by reading about Christ, I simply see Him being a witness. He was always witnessing; on a mountain, by the side of a lake, even on the lake, by a well, in the desert, at the temple, in a garden, while He was walking, sitting, and standing, in the morning, in the evening, He was vocal about the things of God in His daily routine. He talked about His God to religious leaders, a single woman, a small group, a large crowd, a governor and king. His witness was not diminished by circumstances; He witnessed to hostile crowds, in a mock trial, even while hanging on a cross to pay the price for your sins and mine. He was a witness by being vocal and by living righteously—He walked the talk, His testimony was clear.
That’s the best way to be a witness for your Lord. Be clear about the things of God by means of your words and your actions. Be transparent of your heart’s love for God in word and deed. Take time to study the greatest example of witnessing we have, Jesus, and be filled with His Spirit. And remember this; you’ll need a lot of grace and humility if your witness is to be for your Master’s glory!
But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth. Acts 1:8
