How can I witness for Christ?


Witnessing is a vital part of the Christian life; the Bible teaches that the true believer will desire to share with others what God has done for him; read John 4:28-30,39-42 and 1 John 1:1-4.

God commands us and empowers us to be His witnesses (Matthew 4:19 and Acts 1:8). Our testimony may not always be accepted, but through the Holy Spirit we can receive power to live a victorious Christian life and serve Christ effectively; read Ephesians 5:18 and Luke 11:13.

Here are a few suggestions that might help you to lead others to Christ: Live a consistent Christ-centered life (Matthew 5:17); be a friend and a good listener; pray that the Holy Spirit will give opportunity for witness and prepare the individual to receive the Word of life (John 16:7-11); and avoid arrogance and preachiness.

You should pray daily for the people on your prayer list and ask God for wisdom as you share Christ with them; read James 1:5, 3:17.

    I want to learn to witness to others. I don’t know how to start a conversation. The Lord gives me opportunities but I end up keeping my mouth shut. I want to gather not scatter. I need to learn. Help me please

  4. Cheryl says:

    I have been asked to witness in church and not sure how to start the witness off?

    1. BGEA says:

      Hi Cheryl,
      Do you mean you’ve been asked to give your testimony? How wonderful! Basically, all you need to do is stand up and tell how you came to know Christ. Share how your life has changed now that you’ve invited Christ into your heart. If you aren’t sure Christ lives in your heart, start here:

      Make sure to pray and talk with God beforehand. He will guide you.

  8. Teresa Graves says:

    There was a lady that came to my house today. I asked if she is a Christian;she immediately said yes. I am a Jevoah Witness. I told her how God has blessed me in my life. She starting talking about how beautiful the day is. I asked her if she knew that there is only one way to Heaven and that is through Jesus Christ. she said Yes I know well you have a good day and she left. I don’t know how to witness for God;but I would like to learn. I have always been the person that was quiet and really never knew how or what to say. I ask God every morning to help me to help someone today and that my light will shine that others may see and accept him. I need your prayers that God will lead me each day.
