Strength to Witness (Part 2)

You would be surprised at the number of people who believe they are going to heaven based on their own feelings. Just because a person thinks they are going to Heaven doesn’t mean that they are according to the Word of God. The Bible says we must be born again and go through Jesus in order to enter the Kingdom of God in Heaven.

  • John 3:3 New King James Version – Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
  • John 14:6 New King James Version – Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

All believers are supposed to witness, not just spiritual leaders. Everyone needs to be born again. The Lord needs witnesses. God is looking for willing workers. Winning souls is the most important things we can do for the Lord. The harvest is plentiful but the laborers are few.

  • Luke 10:2 New King James Version – Then He said to them, “The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few; therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.

God provides great benefits for His workers–eternal life, health, strength, provision and God Himself as our personal Tutor–the Holy Spirit. So, when can you start? Don’t worry. You do not have to witness in your own strength. The Lord Himself will help us have strength to witness.

  • Ephesians 6:10 New King James Version – Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.
  • Psalm 19:14 New King James Version Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart Be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my strength and my Redeemer.

You will have help to witness. You can start right in your own household, among your family. We all know people who are not saved, start with them.

  • Acts 1:8 New King James Version – But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”

You will need boldness to witness. It takes courage to obey the Lord sometimes. But if you pray for courage, the Lord will give it to you. Sometimes you need more boldness to witness to family and friends, than strangers.

  • Acts 4:29 New King James Version – Now, Lord, look on their threats, and grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may speak Your word,
  • Luke 12:12 New King James Version – For the Holy Spirit will teach you in that very hour what you ought to say.”

You don’t have to know a lot of scripture or be saved a long time to witness for Jesus. Consider the Samaritan woman from John 4. As soon as she got saved she told everyone she knew about the Lord. She dropped everything and became a witness.

  • John 4:39 New King James Version – And many of the Samaritans of that city believed in Him because of the word of the woman who testified, “He told me all that I ever did.”

Don’t try to figure out what you will say in advance. Simply start a conversation and ask the Holy Spirit to help you direct the conversation towards Jesus. Then ask, “Do you know Jesus?”

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”

John 3:16 New King James Version
