Witnessing



My thought for the week is-Witnessing. Witnessing is a very important thing in our life! We should always want to tell others about Jesus! The bible says that we should not be ashamed of the gospel! We should never be ashamed or embarrassed to tell others about Jesus! You walk by lost people every day, and if you are not willing to give the gospel to them who will? Evey soul is important and they might be in need of the Lord, but if we do not tell them they might die and go to hell!
    The bible says in Romans 10:14- How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?  How will people know about Jesus if we do not tell them? It is our responsibility to tell others that Jesus died on the cross for their sins! Will you tell some one about Jesus this week? Will you step forward and be a witness for Christ? It is your decision! Make the right chose this week and tell somebody about Jesus!

    So often we get too busy with life and pass so many opportunities to share the hope within us.
    Thanks =)

  4. I found your blog through the Keller Girls and have really been enjoying reading some of your posts!
    I'm also a Johnson! (they're plentiful here in Minnesota)Though we aren't involved in foreign missions, we are starting a church in central Minnesota.
    It looks like you use the KJV - Do you always wear skirts? It's nice to find other like-minded Christians!

    I look forward to reading more of your devotionals! Witnessing is one of my weak points. It's not completely that I am shy about it, but I don't want to seem too extremely random in bringing up the gospel. Any suggestions? And here in Minnesota, everyone is really religious. So it's not that they've never heard that Jesus saves. They just think that God is very forgiving and wouldn't send them such "good people" to Hell! But they don't realize that they actually need to repent of their sins and accept Christ as their savior.

    Thank you for posting this,
    Betsy

    1. Hi! OH i am so glad that you liked this post! Yes, my family whole-heartedly use the KJV bible, and yes I do ALWAYS wear skirts; that is our family's standard! I know what you mean about being shy to go forward and tell others! I actually used to be like that myself. But one day I had a great aportunity to tell somebody about Jesus, but a regredfully did not! Ever since then I have constantly thought about it! What if that person was not saved? What if I could have led them to the Lord but since I didn't will they now go to hell without knowing about Jesus dying on the cross for our sins? Those questions haunted me for weeks! After this experiance I have been more of a witness! Just think " if I will not tell this person about Christ then who will?" How will they now about Jesus if we do not tell them? Hope this helps! God bless!

    2. I guess for me it's just knowing which people to witness to. I really don't know a LOT of lost people... It only makes sense that I would spend more time with Christians! I go to church, my piano teacher is saved, and the only other place I spend a lot of time is at the nursing home where I volunteer. Hmm... okay, I guess I do see plenty of lost people there! But then I still come to the point of not wanting to be completely random - it's not that I know these people very well - it would be like walking up to any random person in Walmart. So after all my rambling, I guess I'm asking, what would be a "great opportunity"? without simply approaching every random stranger I see. (which would be an impossible overwhelming task) I hope that was clear enough for you to understand...

    3. oK, well I have never really gone up to anybody and really told them the whole plan for salvation etc. I usually just hand them a track or something! Does your family or church do any witnessing and going up to peoples doors? That is a good oppertunity to tell others about Jesus. Or sometimes I just leave a track maybe in a public restroom, or I will leave a track on the table for the waiter when we go to restaurants! To witness u don't exactually have to tell them personally but u can give then a track or something! My family knows many people who has gotten saved just by reading a gospel track! Hope that helped! Merry Christmas;)

    4. I see. I use tracts, too. We ordered a big box comic book tracts from chick publications,(http://www.chick.com/catalog/tractlist.asp)so we slowly go through those. I like to keep a bunch in my purse and waiters and restrooms are what sue them on most, too! :-D
      No, we don't go door knocking unless we're trying to cover a really small town that has a population less than 100. And when it's door knocking, my parents just go out and do it by themselves. In the "big" towns, (still usually under 5,000 people) we just put flyers on the doors that have an invitation to church and tell how to be saved.
      Thank you for taking the time to reply to all my comments! :-D

  5. One more thing - have you posted your testimony somewhere on you're blog? It's interesting to hear the testimonies of those who have grown up in christian homes - when did they realize their very own need for a Savior?

    1. I actually was saved at a very young age in Sunday School! I was only about 5! I have grown up as a christian all my life, and I don't really remember what exactually I realized what made me suddenly decide to get saved! I quess I just relized my need for the Savior!
