CAN I GET A WITNESS?

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” (Acts 1:8, NIV)

Car Accident

A few years ago, I witnessed an automobile accident. It was an experience I will never forget. As the only witness to the incident, I spent the next two or three months telling lawyers and insurance adjusters exactly what I had seen. I wasn’t expected to explain the physics of the wreck or the details of the medical trauma. I was simply asked to recall only what I had actually seen.

As followers of Christ, we are called to be witnesses to what Jesus has done in us and for us. To point people to Christ, we don’t need to be able to explain every theological issue or answer every question. We just need to explain what we have witnessed in our own lives through our relationship with our Savior. Most importantly, we don’t have to rely on ourselves alone to do this. Jesus said, But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” (Acts 1:8, NIV)

When we accept the Spirit’s power, we can point those who are hurting toward our Savior. With His help, we can witness to the life-changing power of His presence in our lives!

Our testimony is the witness of what God has done for us.
