How to Help People on Their Spiritual Journeys
Standing as a witness of God involves both who we are and what we do. In order to be a witness of the Savior, we must strive to be like Him. This means setting a Christlike example for others through the clothes we wear, the words we speak, the music we listen to, the service we give, and the friends we make. Take advantage of every opportunity to share your testimony of the gospel with others. Your beliefs may sometimes be questioned or challenged, but you can stand as a witness when you defend your testimony. You can also stand as a witness when you withstand temptation.
Sharing a good news story isn't something that many of us struggle with on an everyday basis, but when it comes to telling other people about our faith, we can suddenly find ourselves lost for words. Witnessing doesn't have to be a daunting prospect and because there are so many different ways that we can do it - by treating others with kindness, by practising forgiveness, by speaking out about God's love for us - it's something that we can all practise habitually. Draw inspiration from the following Bible verses on the importance of witnessing and the ways to do it. Why we should be a witness Aside from the obvious reason of wanting other people to know the same peace, joy and love that comes with a relationship with Christ, sharing the gospel and our testimonies is what we're explicitly called to do. The act of sharing our faith isn't just for the benefit of non-believers, other Christians can be motivated by our attitude too. Romans - That is, that you and I may be mutually encouraged by each other's faith.
Yet the Apostles must not and do not stand alone. It is within the capacity of each of us to become His witness. Being a witness of Jesus Christ in the most fundamental sense is to possess a sure, personal testimony that He is the divine Son of God, the Savior and Redeemer of the world. The ancient Apostles knew that Jesus was the promised Messiah and spoke from personal experience of His literal Resurrection. Nevertheless, a witness of Christ does not need to have seen Him or entered into His presence. We have the special witnesses of our own time who live among us and from whom, with our own eyes and ears, we receive a confirming testimony.
In more than 50 years of traveling around the world, I have never had anyone witness to me about their Christian faith, though several have confessed their faith after I initiated a conversation. Surveys indicate that the vast majority of Bible-believing Christians do not witness to others about their faith in Christ. Eighty-five percent never invite anyone to church, and 95 percent never win anyone to Christ. What does it mean to witness? Witnessing was a command, not a choice. The word witness needs little explanation.
