Being Witnesses…

WITNESS

The more I think about Abba’s heart for his lost sheep, the more I realize that nothing about that ‘me, myself and I on the way to heaven life’ I once craved is really going to be possible if I let God. What God really wants is for me and you through our lives to bring an authenticity to Him that people cannot ignore. He wants us to be generous with our lives. When He asks us to be witnesses, what does He mean? You know how the signatures of witnesses bring  validity to a document or their presence affirms a narrative, He wants us to be that for the gospel. Witnesses that bring an authenticity to what the bible says.

Make that Move!

motion light

My uncle has motion detector light bulbs installed at his residence and the lights come on when there is movement around them. It is almost magical; as I park my car and step out, the security light just by the front door comes on and goes off soon after I make my way in, and provided there is power, the lights respond to me as I move through the house. However, I realized that if I stayed in one place without movement, even though the light had responded to my previous movement, it would go off. So I could be right underneath the motion sensitive light bulb but I would be in darkness because I stopped moving. Mid staircase, there is another of such bulbs, it doesn’t come on until I take one step onto the staircase, then and only then does the indicator pick my body warmth. Sometimes, it is dark at the bottom of the staircase so I am unable to see the entire staircase until I take a step onto the first step and move into the darkness. I can then see the light for the rest of the journey because the lights come on.

Be an example

“Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity” 1Timothy 4:12

I have come to the conclusion that being an example radiates from our very being.  It’s who we are, what we believe in, and how we act. There is good in everyone.  Even though our beliefs may differ, we all radiate something. What is it that you radiate?  What conviction shows forth from you that says “I AM AN EXAMPLE”?  Can Christ depend on you to communicate a message? Is your life an epistle to be read of all men? Sometimes, these things sound far fetched, but they actually are not.

Every day, there are things that test our faith, small tests of integrity, sincerity, honesty and faithfulness; there is a cloud of witnesses wat...
