Commitment to Christ - Witness

:: 27::  So, my child, draw your strength from the grace that is in Christ Jesus. Take the things you heard me say in front of many other witnesses and pass them on to faithful people who are also capable of teaching others. (1 Timothy 2:1-2)

Disciples of Jesus are called to a great task. We are to take those things we have learned from faithful pastors and loving them as Christ loved you. Praying for them. Serving  them. And speaking to them of your hope when you have opportunity.

Others may have the gift of evangelism and may be naturally inclined to steer conversations with new friends and old acquaintances toward faith. Even if you don’t have that gift, you can be an evangelist. Whether it be to our close connections or loose ties, we are ALL called to witness.

Lord in Heaven and on Earth, give me the skills to faithfully witness to Christ through word and deed. Amen.
