He came as a witness, to bear witness about the light, that all might believe through him. John 1:7
In 2009 I came home from back to back mission trips from Guatemala and Africa. I was on fire for God and wanted to share what I had just experienced. I was bearing witness to a man at the airport upon arrival to the states and as I spoke with him about what I had seen and done I shared a story about a very frail and sick 83-year-old lady in Guatemala and the sick ward I visited in the African prisons. As I spoke with this gentleman his only question was, “Did you touch them?” to which I replied “We laid hands over them and prayed.” As I said this man turned away with a look of disgust on his face and said “I would not do that for a million dollars.” I replied, “I would not do it for a million dollars either, I would do it for my God.” Our conversation turned from there to God and his great Love for us as his children. The Lord has called us all to bear witness to Him in every situation we face in life. We should constantly be on fire for the Lord and this Fire should exude from our person. It should be our very existence whether we are in an airport, in the car driving, or even at home having dinner with the family. This gentleman devoted his life to Christ that afternoon and I will be forever encouraged by his willingness to listen believe.
To bear witness to God we must know God and be on fire for him. This Fire comes from spending time in the Bible, it comes from fellowshipping with other believers, it comes from bible studies, quiet time and most importantly Prayer. Pray and listen and the Lord will direct you path.
Personal Application: Are you a light for Christ? How are you seeking to bear witness for him?
Home Application: This week I encourage you sit down with those in your home to open that bible, dive in for 20 min, close your eyes and pray on whatever it is you have read. You WILL be a LIGHT this week!
What changes could you make that would fuel the fires of passion for Christ in your life?
