How to be an engaging witness for Christ
August 31, 2011
“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
I used to go to the aerobics center with a man named John. And everybody at that fitness club knew John. If they didn’t, they met him within about five minutes! I remember watching John and how encouraged I was by his engaging witness for Christ. He just loved people!
And you know, there were so many people at that gym who didn’t know Christ. They weren’t interested in church if they’d even ever been to church at all! So it took someone like John who could go in with the joy of Jesus in his heart to share the Lord with those people.
I realize that not all of us have a personality like John’s. But each of us can be engaging in our own way by simply being real with others. We can be thoughtful, kind, and authentic with our lives. In fact, one of my favorite things to do with nonbelievers is shatter their stereotype of what a Christian is just by being a genuine person.
Being an engaging witness means that you just flow from the inside out with an authentic witness of Christ in your life. It means that in everything you do, God is glorified. And in every situation you experience, you put others before you. If you live that way, your life will be a powerful witness for Christ!
LIVE AN AUTHENTIC LIFE WITH GOD AS THE CENTER AND YOU’LL BE A POWERFUL WITNESS FOR JESUS CHRIST!
