But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria and to the end of the earth.
Believers in the early church had a deep commitment to bringing others to Christ. They sought to share the gospel with those who lived nearby in their own city of Jerusalem… and also with those who lived further away, even in distant nations.
And they were remarkably effective! Despite strong opposition and persecution, members of the early church were consistent in sharing their faith and they made a profound impact for Christ!
So let me ask you today… are you doing all you can to bring others to Christ?
If you feel that you could do more, I encourage you to get on your knees before the Lord and ask the Holy Spirit to come upon you and help you to become a more effective witness for Christ.
After all, it’s only the Lord who can change hearts! And you need to rely on Him to give you the wisdom, boldness, and opportunities to share the Good News with those around you.
BECOMING A TRULY EFFECTIVE WITNESS FOR CHRIST
BEGINS WITH ASKING THE HOLY SPIRIT TO HELP YOU!
