A witness according to the complete word study dictionary, 1993, “someone who has information or knowledge of something,” “one who can bring to light.” A witness is someone who is credible in their testimony about what they have heard or seen. A witness is someone who speaks well of someone. And in the context of our faith in Christ, we are to speak well of the God we profess, we are to testify about our experiences of how God has touched and changed our lives as the Bible says, “God rescued us from dead-end alleys and dark dungeons. He’s set us up in the kingdom of the Son He loves so much, the Son who got us out of the pit we were in, got rid of the sins we were doomed to keep repeating.” Read Colossians 1:13 (MSG).
John the Baptist was in the wilderness, so if I were to ask, where is your wilderness? Your wilderness can be the place where you witness for Christ. John the Baptist was quite blunt, vocal and refused to be politically correct, likewise, we should be bold and unapologetic about what we believe. Look around you, every cadre of society is projecting something and right in your face unapologetically, so why should we hold back witnessing for Christ? None at all. And if we dare project or announce our faith in Christ, people say we are religious fanatics!!!
Okay!!! Ricky, I am with you, how then do I share my testimony with others? I am glad you asked, and the Bible helps us understand this better when it says, “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be My witnesses, telling people about Me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Read Acts 1:8 Clearly we see the Holy Spirit empowering you to be a credible witness.
Watch this, there is no boundary or wall that can stop you from being a credible witness except you. Therefore, we do not need to worry about whether we are an evangelist or not, at least what we do know is that we are to be credible witnesses, and the Lord Almighty has put you on a platform; your platform is your sphere of influence, Selah.
Father, thank You for giving me Your Holy Spirit who empowers me to be a credible witness for You. I am eternally grateful to You my Father.
