Christians Are Commanded to Witness

March 6, 2019

The American Dictionary sitting on my desk describes “witness,” when used as a verb, “to bear witness to one’s religious convictions: testify. Used as a noun, a witness is a public affirmation by word or example of one’s faith or beliefs.

In Acts 1:8 Jesus assured His disciples, But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come on you, and you will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Again in Acts 22:15 Paul writes, “For you will be a witness for Him to all people of what you have seen and heard.”

Jesus charged His disciples then, and the same command applies to His disciples today: you and me. We must introduce people to Jesus.

To qualify as a witness, one must see, behold or perceive an event; they must be able to give testimony or evidence. You have had a personal experience with Jesus Christ, qualify as a witness. You are a witness to that experience.


Relationship witnessing in two words: effective witnessing. It’s not skilled Bible interpretation. Nor does it call for theological training. It’s your sharing with others what Jesus means to you; it’s telling and showing how Jesus has worked in, and is working in your life.
