Matthew 28:19 – Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
Acts 5:42 – And daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ.
The Lord Jesus Christ calls on us to be a witness of what he has done in our life to those about us. The early Christians here in Acts 5 taught of his saving grace in the temple and from house to house. People do not always want to hear what we have to say but the command is to go ye into all nations. We should always try to walk in the spirit as we try and be a witness. It works a whole lot better if you have a touch of God on you. Christ told the disciples to tarry at Jerusalem until they were filled. After that they could go and be a witness.
The disciples witnessed at the church and out in public. They went house to house telling people about the Lord. There is no doubt it is getting harder to reach people. We are not to worry about the increase but just “be” a witness. The action verb be shows a state of being in the present. We are to “be” a witness as a Christian. We are either a good one or a bad one. Speaking to people about the Lord is best if they will listen but sometimes a gospel tract is all you can do. A tract talks long after you are gone. The Internet can be a tool too, We should try anything we can to see people saved. We just need to be a witness. Why not try and say something for the Lord today.
