SCRIPTURE: “How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!” – Isaiah 52:7.
We may hear of witnessing for Christ and not know the full import of the expression. I remember in those days that witch doctors did not really have sign boards to advertise themselves.
What people who go to them do was to tell others who have a similar problem like them. They would say, “I have one witch doctor somewhere, this problem is very small for him.” And like that they began to be known all over the place to the point that people will travel from adjourning towns and villages. Why? It is because somebody said he cured them of a similar disease or sickness.
Witnessing for Christ has also placed such a burden on us. Tell others that the Saviour is here and has paid the price for that ailment, has paid the price for that trouble or problem on the cross of Calvary. Encourage them to come to Him to appropriate the payment for themselves. The reason we need to tell others about Him again is because when we receive Him, others need to know of our new status. Philip did it in John 1:45, “Philip findeth Nathaniel, and saith unto Him, we have found him, of which Moses in the Law, and the Prophets did write, Jesus of Nazareth, the Son of Joseph.” This happened immediately he found the Lord – To tell others that we have changed from what we used to be to a new creature is to witness for Him, whether or not you are shy or do not feel like speaking about Him. We have been commissioned to tell others. And others we must tell. They must also hear it from us, tell them He heals, He saves and delivers.
Witnessing for Christ also shows that you are bearing fruits. John 15:16a says “Ye have not chosen me, but have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit and that your fruit should remain.”
We are branches and the Lord is the vine. As we are attached to Him, we will be able to bring forth fruit; without Him, we can’t bear fruit. Are you bearing fruit? If not, you can start today.
