"I will do marvels, such as have not been done in all the earth " Exodus: 34:10 (KJV)
Called to be witness

Acts 26:15-20

We are called to be the witness for Jesus Christ. Apostle Paul stood before King Agrippa to speak about himself. Paul says, I am blessed to stand witness before you. He explains about, how he was saved from the wretched sin and has become a powerful witness. Same way you are also called to be a powerful witness. He has also saved you not to remain in the same state but to save others from similar bondage.

When Lord spoke to Paul he said, I am the Lord whom you tortured. But Paul could not understand this as his eyes where blinded by satan.

Paul was torturing the Christians in Jerusalem, but considered it as a service. Paul was a very cruel person and forced the children of God to blasphemed against the living God. When God met him he was a changed person and went as a witness before the same people whom he tortured. Many in this world are living in the same way with no integrity or truth. It is our duty to tell about the Lord to them. If God can save a person like Paul and turn him into a living testimony. So also God can touch the lives of people today. His caring and compassionate arms are still wide open. But he needs people to do his work.

What are you supposed to speak about? You are to speak about whatever you have heard and received. God has saved you from sin and has done many miracles in your life. Speak about all that God has done in your life.

What does your eyes see today? The eyes of the world is filled with lust and pride and sees the unholy things. King Solomon says in Ecclesiastes 11: 9, Young man, Follow the ways of your heart and whatever your eyes see, but know that thou shall be brought before judgement. Therefore train your eyes to see holy things.

Acts 26:18 says God wants to open the eyes of the people and turn them from darkness to light. Jesus says I am the light of the world. Therefore we have to bring the people from darkness to light.

God will supply you with power when you become his witness. Not by might, not by power but by my Spirit says the Lord. The Holy Spirit shall guide you.

To be a witness first of all your life should be a model for others. Then the following points has to be strictly adhered to.

  1. Do not neglect attending church. Isaiah 58:13
  2. Participate in communion regularly. Luke 22:19
  3. You should have good deeds. 1Peter 2:12

God has commanded us to be a witness and spread the gospel in and around the place where we live and to all the world. May the Lord God give you the Grace to be his witness.

2Timothy 4:8 when we fight a good fight in this world and kept the faith and finished our duty in this world, God promises the crown of righteousness.
