Those of us who have accepted Jesus Christ as our Savior and Lord are now the Lord’s witnesses.
A witness is a person who has observed something, perceived something, or experienced something; and who are willing and able to give an account of their experience.
Let’s look at a few Scriptures:
God has raised this Jesus to life, and we are all witnesses of it. (Ac 2:32)
. . . and killed the Prince of life, whom God raised from the dead, of which we are witnesses. (Ac 3:15)
Him God has exalted to His right hand to be Prince and Savior, to give repentance to Israel and forgiveness of sins. 32 And we are His witnesses to these things, and so also is the Holy Spirit whom God has given to those who obey Him.” (Ac 5:31-32)
What would God like us to share with other people? Of what should we testify (bear witness)?
We should simply affirm our own, personal experience of what happened to us in accepting Jesus as our Savior. We may also reveal how serving Jesus Christ and being in relationship with Him has changed our lives since we turned our hearts over to Him.
In my own life, once I accepted Christ as my Savior, many things became different. I felt that I had been set free, and I felt an incredible joy. I wanted to tell everyone about my experience because it was so simple and easy to receive Jesus; and it made such an impact upon my life. I felt such love for people—which was a new experience—and I wanted everyone else to experience the joy that I had.
I have now known the Lord as my Savior for more than four and a half decades, and I have experienced miracles, signs, and wonders in my own life. I’ve also prayed for other people and seen the Lord perform miracles for others in answer to our prayers. I’ve seen relatives reconciled; diseases healed; finances blessed; and marriages restored all in the Name of Jesus.
You have your own special, highly valuable and unique testimony. Your witness will reach people that no one else can reach. Consider how and with whom you can share your incomparable story today. God bless you!
