Dr Charles Stanley In Touch Devotional 11 December 2021 – Joyful Witness
Welcome to In Touch Daily Devotional for Saturday 11th December 2021 written by Dr Charles Stanley. God bless you as you study and pray!
Christians are called to be witnesses for Christ, meaning that we openly share the good news with the world.
TOPIC: JOYFUL WITNESS
Scripture: 1 John 1:1-4
Christians are called to be Jesus’ witnesses (Acts 1:8). This doesn’t mean we need eloquence or charisma in order to explain the good news to others. A witness is simply someone who testifies to what he has seen, heard, or experienced. That’s what John did in the opening of his letter. He shared his first-hand knowledge of having been with Jesus and how that made his joy complete.
If you’ve ever shared the gospel with someone who gladly accepted Christ as Savior, you’ve probably experienced fullness of joy. Yet even if your message was not received by the other person, there’s a joyful satisfaction in carrying out Jesus’ command to tell others about Him. But if your main concern is how you are viewed, there will be no elation. Instead of rejoicing in the opportunity, you’ll likely be critiquing your explanation of the gospel.
Witnessing is not a matter of persuasiveness or verbal skill. Rather, it’s an overflow of your love for Jesus Christ, along with a desire to invite people to know Him. As you allow the Holy Spirit to increasingly express His life and power through you, your joy will overflow and touch others.
Bible in One Year: 1 Thessalonians 1-5
