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 was saved back in 1985 in prison, I have accept Christian in my heart, but I fall sometimes because of the stresses of the world, however I do stand back up eventually, I think I need to witness to others to strengthen myself, that’s what comes to mind anyway, the evil one put stumbling blocks in my way, so would you pray for me. I work hard, I don’t steal anything from anyone, I forgive my enemies, I really try to do what’s right to others, though I know that’s not what saved me, the grace of God thru Christ saves me. But please pray for me

  5. John Cordora says:

    I have renewed my relationship with Jesus Christ. I lost a 22 year marriage by breaking my wedding vows. Repented and am trying to live for God. I am witnessing to my non believing friends. Everyday I wait for the rapture of Jesus. Not fearing the rapture because I know Jesus is coming for me. Please pray for me. Thanks, JOHN 3-27-17
