Everyone His Witness shows us how to share our faith. What does this mean? It means listening to those who are unsure about Christianity. It means asking questions that aren’t accusatory. It means sharing the Good News about Jesus. There is no bashing, no judgment, and no forced imposition of beliefs. Instead, there’s understanding, communication, and honesty between friends. And Every One His Witness shows you how.
The Bible is our source for understanding witnessing as God wants us to understand it. As we search the Holy Scriptures, we find numerous examples of God calling His people to bear witness, people responding to that call by being faithful witnesses, and God himself coming in the flesh to bear witness to the truth. In these biblical examples, we discover what witnessing is all about.
Sign up for Everyone His Witness today.
Who is Jesus
For more than 2,000 years, people have asked this question. We were not present when Jesus lived on this earth, but in the Bible we have the record of His birth, life, death on the cross, and resurrection. Through the study of the Bible, you can seek the answer to this age-old question: “Who is Jesus?”
Why should I know or study about witnessing?
Witnessing is ALL about Jesus. God’s people witness to those in the world so that people who do not know the Lord will learn of Him and His grace. Without this witness, people who are perishing would not hear the good news of the life and salvation won for them by Jesus. The witness of God’s people is meant for ALL people in ALL places through ALL time.
Read Mark 5:1-20
Jesus heals a demon-possessed man. When Jesus was getting back into the boat, the man begged to go with him. “Jesus did not let him, but said, “Go home to your family and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and how he has had mercy on you.” Mark 5:19-20
What does witnessing entail for you?
It means you can witness about Jesus, you can bring Him to people who need Him, for Jesus to come to the aid and be with broken people, delivering them from their hopeless circumstances. Witnessing will show that Jesus cares for the whole person, body and soul.
Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior
No one else has influenced history as He has. Jesus is the Son of God. Old Testament prophets spoke of His coming and described the eternal and life-changing impact He would have.
Jesus is both God and man. He stilled the seas and walked on water. With a touch of His hand, He cured incurable diseases. He restored life to those who had physically died. Jesus personifies love. He paid the ultimate price so that we could live with Him forever. He sees us through the eyes of love.
He loves us in spite of every hurtful thought, every harmful word, and every wrongful action. These are all a result of sin, which contaminates everything we do. It is behind every broken home, every empty life, every infirmity, every damaged emotion, every sorrow and grief. And as the Bible says, the end result of sin is death (Romans 6:23). But Jesus Himself was sinless; only He could pay the penalty for our sins.
Because of his love, He suffered, died, and rose again. We are forgiven. All who believe in Jesus are guaranteed eternal life with Him in heaven.
Why did Jesus do this? Because Jesus is love.
