SCRIPTURE: “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” – Acts 4:12.
We are called to share our faith with others. We are to witness Christ to those around us and those that do not know Him. Christian witnessing is the Great Commission given to all believers in Christ. It is not the exclusive work of apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors or teachers alone, but every member in the body of Christ. The purpose is to make Him known to those that do not know Him.
Christian witnessing is to declare the salvation that God has achieved in Jesus Christ to give hope to humanity. It is simply telling others what we have personally seen and experienced 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 preach Him –and spread the news of Him to all the people of the world.
Are you witnessing for Him? Are you obeying this commandment? Are there people around you that have not known the way of the Lord and you look at them as if it does not concern you? If you have truly been saved, the spirit of the Lord in you will make you restless until others have heard about Him.
Are there people who are sick that need to hear that Jesus can heal them once they give their lives to Him? Tell someone about Jesus today and it shall be well with you.
