Witness by Sharing
If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith that you are saved.
Romans 10:9-10 NLT
Not long ago, I was having lunch with a friend when he casually mentioned a particular stock that he had been reading about that was poised to make a big jump in value. I asked more about the stock and that night went online to check it out. The next day I purchased some of that stock and over the next few months, it almost doubled in value. It is a great asset to my retirement funds. My friend had found something he considered a great buy and wanted to share it with his friends.
In the same way, when we truly believe that we have found a path that makes a person right with God, we want to share it with those who have not discovered this path. If I truly believe that a relationship with God through Jesus Christ has the ability to transform a person’s life, then I want to let them know that. I want them to experience this life-transforming truth.
If I have information that could enrich your life, I am not being a good friend if I don’t tell you. Evangelism is just telling someone you have discovered something that can enrich their life.
The first requirement is to be transformed yourself. For some of us, we have forgotten that we were lost and hopeless without Jesus. We need to ask God to remind us of the miracle of salvation. This reminder should motivate us to desire to share this miracle with others.
Holy Spirit, please help me today to remember the work You have done in my life. Help me to see those around me that need this same miracle. Help me to know what to say and when to say it.
