The Call to be Witnesses for Jesus



Acts 1:1-11          December 29, 2013          Link for audio/video/document

To be a “witness” for Jesus Christ means to be someone who gives a firsthand account by sacrificially following Jesus because they have seen, heard, and experienced the life-changing, heart-transforming, soul-restoring power of the risen Christ. We are called to the kingdom battle when we hear Jesus call his followers to be his witnesses. Witnesses for Jesus are able to fight for the kingdom because they have been empowered through the Holy Spirit by their belief that Jesus rose from the dead, Jesus rules and reigns as King, and Jesus will someday return. When we truly seek to be “witnesses” for Jesus - our lives, our families, our friends, our enemies, our churches, and the world around us will be dramatically transformed!
