Witness for Jesus

I asked a number of friends to tell me what the words WITNESS FOR JESUS brings to their mind. Here are the responses so far. Great stuff!

  • Bringing the light out inside us……..being good examples to others….
  • Standing for the truth of Christ, even when others have their own opposing case against us.
  • To be a witness for somebody, you have to know them. Apostles – face to face time with Jesus to know him. Paul ultimately spent time with Jesus with he was hung on the cross, in the desert, etc. We have to spend time with Jesus to be a witness. Must be in His Word, in Prayer, and live His Life!
  • Isn’t there some expression about letting your walk talk and your talk walk??? Anyway…that’s what comes to my mind immediately…
  • Remember we are an extension of Him, and think of everyone we come in contact with as a future member of Gods family. When they see us they should “witness” Him through our words and actions.
  • from my 10 year old: see things that Jesus does, from my 13 year old: you are witnessing all the good things that Jesus is doing for people. From me, the mom: Giving God the glory when I am noticed for the things I do as a result of my love for Him. Not being afraid to tell others what Jesus has done for me
  • Imitating Him, acting as He would, interceding for people who don’t have anyone.
  • Denying yourself.
  • Going above and beyond the norm with people who don’t believe yet in everything even little stuff. Specially the little stuff.
  • Someone constantly telling others how God is using them for his purpose.
  • Let them see God in me, even if they don’t know my name.
  • It means that I tell others about Jesus, His church and how much He loves them and wants them to live eternally with Him.
  • Reminds me that not only do I deliberately witness for Jesus at specific times, but in the way I live my life, every day choices and words, are a witness whether I’m realizing it or not. Big challenge to live my life in keeping with what I say I believe.
  • Living the LIFE: ALWAYS considering others better than yourself, EVEN when they do not treat you in a fair manner.  Always being the peacemaker, even if you have to crawl to get the job accomplished.  Always forgiving because Christ forgave us. If we fail to do this we have failed to be a witness that moment, day. etc.
  • One who attests of a fact or event, or one that can give evidence. Someone who is called upon to and is able to testify to the facts or event because they were present to view such.  ie, God called His people, His witnesses, Isa. 43:10. The apostles acknowledged themselves to be such in Acts 22:15 and 26:16. Jesus being “faithful witness”.
