Becoming A Living Witness.
God by redemption design us to be a change agent. Power is the dynamic ability to cause change. The Holy Spirit is the source of power. With the help of Holy Spirit, we have the ability to cause change according to Acts 1:8.
A witness is someone who has encountered an experience and goes on to share the experience as it is. You can't be a witness to something you didn't encounter. We are to tell others what God has done in our lives. It's not meant to be kept to us alone but to keep others informed. When you return the glory to God, He's bound to do even more.
A living witness is someone who has encountered Christ and afterwards goes to tell others about Christ. This is who we are designed to be but most of us are not living according to that pattern. What you are coming out of, some people are just getting into it. What God has brought you out of, be a witness and a voice to help others get out of.
Becoming a living witness isn't the assignment of just a few believers but all believers.
Why We Must Be Involved In Witnessing For Christ?
1. God is actively involved:
Christ is in God to reconcile men back to Him. God is invested in souls. He doesn't want any soul to perish. He gave everything to save souls and that's why the Bible says there is joy in Heaven over a single soul that repents. God is actively involved in souls and He wants us to be a witness because that's our assignment. We have been called an ambassadors for Christ. God gave so much to save man, so we must give so much to save souls too.
2. Because of the reality of eternity:
Eternity is real...whether you believe it or not. Don't risk eternity. Heaven is not a place to miss and Hell is not a place to make. Don't play games with eternity. Live your life with eternity in mind.
3. Because of limited time:
The time is short. We are closer to the rapture today than anytime in history. We can't live here forever and we live even in uncertain times. A lot changes quickly and fast too. If we don't act in time, a lot can be lost. We make time for what's important. If Christ is important to you, you will create time for Him. Timing can cost you eternity. A minute can take someone to heaven and a minute can also send anyone to hell and they can't from eternity make changes for what should have been done in time, that's why timing is very important. There is a quote that says a stitch in time saves nine. Be time conscious. Have some urgency in your spirit. Can God depend on you? Passion knows no shame.
Delay is indeed dangerous. Act quickly. The end of all things is at hand.
4. Because of the relentless nature of satan:
The devil is relentless. We must be relentless. We don't have to be lukewarm. We don't have to take it easy. The devil goes around to and fro relentlessly looking for whom to devour.
It is God's desire that all should come to repentance. We all have a part to play. Win a soul today. Lend your voice. Tell someone about Christ today.
Thank you for your time.
