If you are a witness for Jesus, then you will know that great opportunities and miracles will take place, along with persecution.
Nobody said being a witness for Christ would be easy. However, it is worth it when we can be a part of the lost being saved.
Acts 25:9-11 (KJV)
9 But Festus, willing to do the Jews a pleasure, answered Paul, and said, Wilt thou go up to Jerusalem, and there be judged of these things before me?
10 Then said Paul, I stand at Caesar's judgment seat, where I ought to be judged: to the Jews have I done no wrong, as thou very well knowest.
11 For if I be an offender, or have committed any thing worthy of death, I refuse not to die: but if there be none of these things whereof these accuse me, no man may deliver me unto them. I appeal unto Caesar.
James 1:12 (KJV)
12 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.
I pray, Lord, that more people will have a heart for evangelism. May every believer desire to be a witness for You, Jesus. Even if there is fear and doubt in these people now, may they be humbled to a point that Your will may overcome any faults of their own. Will you come inside of them and instill boldness and courage, as they look to You in faith? It may seem like a very large task at hand to go into Your harvest. People may think that they will have nothing to say and will back down in fear because of this, but I know that You can take any person and make them great in Your sight. I know this because You have taken a person like me, who has a stuttering problem, and allow me to find words to speak. In my confidence in You, I am able to articulate my words in a way that people can understand. Even the proud are laid low because of the words that flow through my mouth. This I know that I could never do this, unless the Spirit was with me, leading me to know what to say. You are the one, God, that opens every door and leads me to have divine appointments. Each week, it is a new person to search out and draw unto You. This surely is a blessing to be Your messenger. I just pray that more people will join me in the harvest. One thing that saddens me is that less and less people are willing to get out there and proclaim Your great name. Instead, they are busy doing other thing that are not pleasing in Your sight. I've even heard people say they get bored sometimes. Well, one thing I know Lord is that being a Christian never brings boredom. I am always busy and it brings me so much happiness. Thank You for leading the way in my life. I love You. Amen.
While in the service of God there will be persecution, even to the point of death. Nobody said that being a witness for Christ will come easy, instead it comes with a lot of hard work and tears. Continue Reading
