Who Is Your Witness

Years ago, a young lady was hospitalized after a long fall from a bridge. During the recovery, the spouse of another patient stopped to speak to me. “My husband just told me what happened to you,” she said. “We believe God spared your life because you are to touch others. We’ve been praying for you.”

She was stunned. She had grown up going to church, but had never imagined that God would want to be involved in her life. The lady’s words pointed me to a God she had heard of but did not know. This marked the beginning of my coming to God. Literally, she cherishes the memory of those words from a gentle witness who cared enough to say something to a stranger about the God whose love is real. Her words conveyed care and concern, and offered purpose and promise.

God challenged the disciples, you and I, all of us to tell others about the love of God: “You shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth”.

Through the Holy Spirit our words and witness can have the power to make an eternal difference in the lives of others.

Truly, a caring word can accomplish more than we could ever imagine. Who can you be a witness too today? Please leave a comment on how you can be a disciple for God. I will even write you back.

See you next Sunday.
