Spiritual Disciplines: Witnessing
The Upward Look
© Copyright 2014, Max D. Hutto,
“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1:8 HCSB
Another training exercise or discipline the believer must practice to become spiritually fit is witnessing. To be a witness is simply sharing with others what Jesus has done for you. It is telling your story of how you accepted Jesus as your Savior and how He has made a difference in your life. To be a witness is also sharing His story. It is telling the good news of the gospel of Jesus. It is telling of His death, burial, and resurrection. It is telling how Jesus gave His life to pay for our sins and how He arose to give us a new life: a meaningful and abundant life, an everlasting and eternal life.
Lord Jesus, as I train to be physically and spiritually fit, help me to share with others how wonderful it is to know You and to live each day in Your grace, mercy, and love.
