Becoming an Effective Witness

“But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me…” Acts 1:8
Jesus asked us to be a witness to the world for Him. Definition:

Witness – 1. to see, hear, or know by personal presence and perception: 2. to bear witness to; testify to; give or afford evidence of.

To witness for Christ is to share your personal knowledge of who Christ is to you; what Christ has done for you and what you believe Christ can do for others. You Are Not Responsible For Saving Anyone; Only To Bear Witness To Others.

Three Reasons Every Believer Should Witness

1. Jesus Instructed All Believers To Be A Witness For Him. Acts 1:8

2. God wants to and will lead you to hungry people “Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.” God plan is to use us to find the hungry and lead them to him, just as Jesus did the woman at the well in John chapter four.

3. Jesus is going to personally reward those who are faithful witnesses for Him: “…behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me…” Rev. 22:12

Soul Winning Cause Angels To Rejoice In Heaven

Jesus said: “I say to you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.” Luke 15:10 The angels in heaven rejoice in heaven when just one sinner comes to Christ; that’s a window into how valuable soul winning is to the kingdom of heaven. We too must get excited about lost souls repenting and coming to God; after-all, it’s a demonstration of our love for God and for others. God’s number one priority for sending Jesus to earth was for the salvation of lost souls. (Luke 19:10) “for the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.”

God’s highest priority for you as a believer is that you live a life through which He could draw lost souls to Christ. Jesus said that we are to be light and salt to the world (Matt. 5:13-14). If you want to learn how to live as God’s light [revealing God’s nature) and salt (revealing God’s values) on the earth; so that you can then become an effective soul winner for Christ; join us on Sundays @ 11:00 am and Wednesday nights @7:00 pm.
