Acts 1:8 is a failure verse for many of us. When the disciples received the Holy Spirit, they were to go out into all the world as witnesses. A witness is one who shares a story about an even they were able to observe or participate in. The success of The Twelve launched a world chaining movement we call church. Church is a group pf people gathered together for the purpose of loving one another, our neighbors, our enemies, while worshiping God and sharing his story.
What is your story? Throughout church history the sentiment is that we also, who believe Jesus died once for all sin and rose again, are witnesses of that story. Not just the story of Jesus rising form the dead, but YOUR story of coming to believe that truth. What Jesus did for us is incredible and should effect every part of our lives. Be willing and desirous to share your story! How?
First, pray that God would give you opportunity to share. I like to call them divine appointments.
Second, write your story down. What was life like before meeting Jesus, how did you meet him, and what are you doing for him since? Share it with someone and rehearse with them. Third, share it!
