Witness to the World
by Erik Momsen
Church can become boring and the Christian life stale if we don't stay within the basic idea the Lord had for us. It can become a daily and weekly set of rituals and attempts to stay away from sin. Jesus, however, when choosing his first disciples said this: "Come and follow me and I will make you fishers of men." (PS. He continues to choose people daily to follow Him).
- get going from here and get people to follow Me.
We were saved to become involved in saving others.
BEING INVOLVED IN THE SALVATION OF OTHERS IS THE GREAT THRILL
It is one thing doing an interesting and fulfilling career but something completely different helping people plan a trip into eternity. If you think planning a trip to Thailand is exciting. then what about meeting people from every tribe, tongue and nation in a newly created heaven and earth?
There is nothing on earth like seeing the seeds of eternity take root in another person's life.
"And so, my dear friends, just as you have always obeyed, not only when I was with you but even more now that I am absent, continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling. For it is God who is producing in you both the desire and the ability to do what pleases him. Do everything without complaining or arguing. so that you may be blameless and innocent, God's children without any faults among a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine like stars in the world as you hold out the word of life. Then I can boast in the day of Christ that I did not run in vain or work hard in vain. " (Philippians 2:12-16)
- this salvation plan is a lifelong journey - work it out.
HOW TO WITNESS
1) BE BEFORE YOU DO - it is about who you are in Christ - it's about His Spirit in you - people shouldn't have to ask.
2) YOU CAN ONLY WITNESS WHAT YOU'VE EXPERIENCED
3) ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS
4) PRAYER OPENS THE EYES OF BLIND HEARTS
5) THE POWER OF THE SPIRIT TO BREAK BONDAGES
The church exploded across the earth because of the work of the Spirit. Follow Him and see people "born from above." (John 3:6-8)
