But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1:8
Jesus, after His resurrection appeared to the disciples and gave many convincing proofs that He was alive. He appeared to them over a period of forty days and spoke about the kingdom of God. On one such occasion, when they met together, Jesus gave them this privilege with a responsibility assigned to it.
This privilege with a responsibility attached was not only for the disciples but also for all of us who profess to follow Christ. We are to stand as witnesses in this world, we need to live as Christ lived. Being witnesses doesn’t mean only to share the Gospel, it is something that our lives need to be doing. Someone has rightly said, ‘we are the only Bibles that people get to read’.
Every action of ours should clearly testify as to who God is, what He means to us and what He has done for the mankind. We should be able represent Christ through our lifestyle.
