CHRISTIAN WITNESSING (I)

THE MESSAGE:

Christian witnessing is the "Great Commission" given to all believers in Christ. It is not for only apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors or teachers but every member of the body of Christ. Witnessing for Christ is to make Him known to those that do not know Him.


Christian witnessing is to declare the salvation of God through Jesus Christ, the hope of humanity. It is simply telling others that we have personally experienced the saving grace of the Lord Jesus. There are various verses in the Bible that tell us to witness for our Lord and Saviour as long as we live.


Witnessing is a command of our Lord Jesus Christ. We are duty bound to witness for Him because He died to accomplish our redemption on the cross and victoriously resurrected from the dead on the third day. Thereafter, He told His disciples to witness to all creatures -- Matthew 28:19. He did not suggest it, but commanded it and commissioned us to go out and spread the good news to the whole world.


1 John 1:3 says, "That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ." So, witnessing for Christ means simply telling others what we have personally seen and experienced of the Lord Jesus.


When we witness for Christ, we fulfil our role and purpose as His chosen branches that are set in the vine to bear fruits (John 15:16). We will also be discharging our responsibility and expectation to make the unbelievers hear the gospel. Similarly, by witnessing for Christ, we will be working against satan's kingdom and strategy to keep people in the dark and under his authority.


Are you witnessing for Him? Are you obeying this commandment? Do you feel unconcerned? If you have been truly saved, the Spirit of the Lord in you will make you restless, until others have heard about Him from you.


MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE:

Be a good person, so that no one can ignore you.
