TOPIC: Christian Witnessing (2)
Isaiah 52:7 – “How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings…”
Witnessing for Christ is the responsibility of all believers. Perhaps you are wondering where and how to start. You can always start by telling others what He has done for you. Tell others that the Saviour is here and has paid the price for that ailment, that trouble or problem plaguing their lives on the cross at Calvary.
All they need to do is to surrender their lives to Him as their Lord and personal Saviour. We need to tell others about Him because when we receive Him, others need to know of our new status. Philip did it in John 1:45: “Philip findeth Nathaniel, and saith unto him, we have found him, of which Moses in the law, and the prophets did write, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.” This happened immediately he found the Lord.
We need to tell others that we have changed from what we used to be to new creatures. We have been commissioned to tell others. We must tell them the wonderful works of Jesus. He heals, He saves and delivers. Witnessing for Christ also shows that you are bearing fruits.
John 15:16a says, “Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit and that your fruit should remain.” We are the branches and the Lord is the vine. As we are attached to Him, we will be able to bring forth fruit but without Him, we can’t bear fruit. It is time to become productive for the Lord.
Similarly, we are witnesses of Jesus Christ when we live with a happy outlook that shows our faith in Him. Our lives are the scripture that many people read. We are Christ’s effective witnesses when we demonstrate the love of God and His character to others (believers and unbelievers), standing for truth and justice as well as helping others who are in need.
So, we witness for Christ both by telling them about His love and sacrifice for us as well as by loving others practically as He has loved us. Can Jesus count on you?
Always help someone; you may end up needing them later
As you go about witnessing for Christ, He will make your feet beautiful, in the name of Jesus.
Thy kingdom come, O God
Thy kingdom come, O God,
Thy rule, O Christ, begin;
Break with Thine iron rod
The tyrannies of sin.
Where is Thy reign of peace,
And purity, and love?
When shall all hatred cease,
As in the realms above?
When comes the promised time
That war shall be no more,
And lust, oppression, crime
Shall flee Thy face before?
We pray Thee, Lord, arise,
And come in Thy great might;
Revive our longing eyes,
Which languish for Thy sight.
Men scorn Thy sacred name
And wolves devour Thy fold;
By many deeds of shame
We learn that love grows cold.
O’er heathen lands afar
Thick darkness broodeth yet:
Arise, O morning Star,
Arise, and never set.
1. My Father, give me grace to proclaim You to the world, in the name of Jesus.
2. Anti-gospel spirits in my environment, be disgraced and destroyed, in the name of Jesus.
3. Hindrance to the word of God, die, in the name of Jesus.
4. Internal blockage, break and die, in the name of Jesus.
5. Enemy of the gospel, die, in the name of Jesus.
6. Power of the Holy Spirit to spread the word of faith, possess me, in the name of Jesus.
7. O God, my Father, arise and make Yourself known in my life, in the name of Jesus.
