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.

    1. BGEA says:

      Hi Brenda,

      Here are some useful tools for witnessing.

      How to share your faith

      You can also write down your story of how you came to follow Christ, including any challenges you’ve lived through. Keep it short- to about 3 minutes- and then practice telling it so you’ll be prepared to share it with others.

      To share Christ with someone, you could ask them if you can pray for them. Ask them about their life story. Share your testimony. It doesn’t have to be in any particular order, it’s just like talking with a friend or with a new friend.

      God bless you!

    It is God’s desire for us to tell others about the gospel and sadly I really become ineffective at doing it because of condemnation and fear
