Acts 1:8 AMP
But you shall receive power (ability, efficiency, and might) when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you shall be My witnesses in Jerusalem and all Judea and Samaria and to the ends (the very bounds) of the earth.

Series: Why Evangelise?
Why is it so important for us to be an evangelist, to share about Jesus, talk about Jesus, tell people that Jesus is the Savior and that He can save our life, save us from our sins and bring in complete deliverance and complete change in our life?
We evangelise because Jesus commanded us to evangelise and we know that Jesus’ return is dependent on the fact that every tribe and nation hears the gospel. That’s the primary factor for the return of Jesus.
Acts 1:8 says when the Holy Spirit comes upon you, it’s not just for you to do miracles or to boast about speaking in tongues or for you to enjoy the life. It’s for you to be a witness of Jesus.
Most times we are witnesses of how good or great we are, instead of it being about Jesus! But that’s not our calling, our calling is to be His witness. It’s about sharing Jesus, being a testimony to the story of Jesus and making people see Jesus through our life. That’s the reason Jesus says that when Holy Spirit will come upon us, we will be His witness.
Evangelism is the only place where we can proudly show off our Master, our Jesus, our Lord and Savior. It is to express our close relationship with God.
Why do we invite so many people for our wedding or baby dedication? It’s to tell everyone how much special that one person in our life is. Do the same in your relationship with God. Make the people around you to know your walk with Jesus and the story of your relationship with Jesus.
Sometimes couples do share about their love for each other on their wedding day. It’s little embarrassing and uncomfortable but still they share it. That’s what it means to be witness of Jesus Christ.
If you are planning to shy away from that responsibility, then remember that the only time you get to express your love towards Jesus by sharing about Him is when you are on earth, not in heaven. When you get to heaven, you still get to worship Him, praise Him and do everything but you don’t get chance to evangelise.
Our relationship with Jesus is important and hence our love for Him ought to be public and exemplary.
What does it take to be a witness of Jesus? Today take an effort and use that opportunity to be a witness of Jesus. Share about Jesus with someone today.
God bless you!
