WE ARE WITNESSES
Have you witnessed something unforgettable?
Going through life gives us good and bad things to witness in every area. It does something to us as we are connected to it in a personal way. In some ways, we own it from our personal experiences. This is real as an imprint in our lives, along with the makeup of who we are.
To be a witness is to have evidence.
This evidence proves where we have been and what we have seen or felt. It empowers us to share and relate what it is because it is part of us. Evidence can exude joy or sorrow, emit pain or healing, and this impacts ourselves along with others. For our culture, evidence is linked to crime scenes and the piecing of it together for a trial. This alone can prove innocence or guilt.
We too have had many crime scenes things we are ashamed of and things we are embarrassed about. Jesus takes the evidence against us and turns it into His glory from His grace and mercy. It is His love that covers a multitude of sins. It is His goodness that leads us to repentance. Our focus is to be a witness to give anyone the evidence of God in our lives.
We are witnesses!
Our challenge is to give our evidence away overcoming our shame and guilt. It’s trumping the embarrassment or failures of our lives by linking His Grace and Mercy to where we have been. Could it be that the greatest thing we have to give, is our evidence?
This is personal! This is real! This is powerful as it connects to where we have been and what He is doing in our lives. It’s the one thing no one can take away in a debate or argument, because it’s who we are!
“You shall receive power after when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere.”Acts 1:8
Our focus is not to figure it out but to let Him out!
Our moment is now to live fully for Him as a witness. To impact eternity while loving all people anywhere and everywhere. It’s to be a witness with the evidence we have. It’s to be humble with others as we have received His goodness freely!
Will you give your evidence away? Will you be a witness for Him?
The chance of a lifetime is to give to others what God has given to us! This crosses politics, race, economics, gender, beliefs and more. This is the language that the world listens to and longs for; the love of God!
Give it today! Share it today! Let Him out today!
Have a great week and the best is yet to come!
