Acts 1.8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
Let’s set the record straight beloved. The proclamation of the gospel of Jesus Christ is to be given by witnesses, not attorney’s. A witness is an individual who verifies the truth of something that they have heard or seen, or both.
Dear ones, while there may indeed be a place in the Christian life to “debate” gospel truths with those who question or oppose what the bible declares, it is vital for us to remember that the gospel truths of the death, burial, resurrection and ascension of The Lord Jesus into heaven are irrefutable and undeniable facts. Thus, God is not calling for us to be attorney’s to “make His case” for Him, He is calling for us to be witnesses.
When they were looking for a successor to Judas Iscariot, we read that “Beginning from the baptism of John, unto that same day that he was taken up from us, must one be ordained to be a witness with us of his resurrection” (Acts 1.22).
Following the very first recorded incident of opposition to the early church’s testimony of Jesus, we read, “And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all” (Acts 4.33).
Jesus commands His church to go into all the world and preach the gospel to every nation and creature. The gospel of Jesus Christ is not a question mark, but an exclamation point. Share the gospel with confidence. Share it with the love of God in your heart, and leave all the results up to. god. Selah.
