I wonder what the apostles thought when JESUS told them that they would be HIS witnesses? No fancy programs, no specially prepared testimony or speech, just a highly trasformed encounter with our risen LORD, JESUS CHRIST! Ineffective Christian testimony and our Christian witnessing is unconvincing because we have not been convinced. Testimonies are wavering and ineffective because the gleam is gone from our eyes and our witnessing is not contagious. Think about it! Christianity doesn't have to be forced upon somone, they should want it when they see us! Christianity should be contagious! Have we programmed ourselves into conformity and apathy? Do we really think we can "script" a testimony to bless others, or is it Spontaneous, like those that JESUS healed? Acts 1: 8, "...you will receive power when the HOLY SPIRIT has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses..." Effective witnessing comes after the "Train Crash" where our souls and the Heart of GOD meet in a violent conflict, and we SURRENDER saying, "THY WILL BE DONE". Let us not be guilty of being "programmed" into our religion! Hear the WHISTLE? GET ON FOR THE RIDE OF YOUR LIFE; YOUR LIFE DEPENDS ON IT!
Psalm 139: 23-24
GOD IS GOD!
