A WITNESS TO THE WORLD! After His resurrection and just before Jesus ascended into heaven He said to the Apostles, "But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth,” (Acts 1:8 NIV). The Bible, when read in its completeness, is clear that this command/statement applies to His church and individual Christians down through the ages. We cannot escape the implications of this command/statement on our own lives.
If we are really "born again" we have the Holy Spirit and His power living in us. We have the ability to do what God wants us to do. We WILL be a witness concerning God; either good or bad depending on our spiritual condition. Our mandate from Jesus is to share the Gospel in every corner of the world, i.e., “the ends of the earth.” It is up to every Christian to be a part of God's plan and follow His command. So what are you going to do about that today and in the future? God has placed each of us in our own section of the sphere called earth. There are people we will have contact with who may never know another real “born again” Christian in their lifetime. But God has placed each of us here today to touch people’s lives for a purpose; that purpose is to witness to them of Jesus in our words and actions. Be a witness to the world today!
