You Shall Be My Witnesses

But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon
you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea

and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.

Acts 1:8 (NKJV)

This week we’ll be looking at a few important points on how to be a
good witness to Jesus:
Firstly, we need to know how important it is to be a good witness.
When unbelievers encounter us, it shapes the way they view Jesus,
and it is important that they are left seeing Christ and his church as
desirable and beautiful.
We do this by loving one another, being kind, walking in humility,
looking after the vulnerable, serving each other, giving to the needy
and living as brothers and sisters in Christ. We can’t, however, do this
in our own strength. We should rely on Holy Spirit to empower us to
witness effectively.
It is important to remember that when we witness we don’t need to
show people that we have it all together, but we must show them
how Christ has changed our lives. The world isn’t looking for perfect
Christians, but for Jesus’ grace. We simply need to show them what
a life impacted by Jesus looks like.

Reflection:
– What is keeping you from witnessing about what Jesus has
done in your life?
– How can you practice relying on Holy Spirit in your everyday
life?
– Where do you have the opportunity to witness about Jesus
with unbelievers?
