"But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you will be my witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth." Acts 1:8

This chapter lists four specific regions where we are to be witnesses, and the first one is Jerusalem. Jesus is not calling all of us to move to the literal Jerusalem to witness, but He is laying out a clear strategy that helps us understand our responsibility to reach where we live, work, and play. You are God's plan to reach your family, your co-workers, and neighbors. He commissions all of us, as Christ-followers, to share Jesus with our sphere of influence in this city. Somebody once said, "You are the only Jesus your neighbor will see." Do you know that Jesus has a body, and is seen throughout our city? You are part of the body of Christ and you are the plan for reaching your family, neighborhood and city.

Who do you know in your family or circle of influence that needs Jesus?

The Power of a Personal Testimony

A witness simply tells the story of what he or she has experienced. Jesus says His followers are also His witnesses.

We are to tell everyone we know about His life, death and resurrection, and how those things became personal to us. We tell everyone we know about this overwhelming life we have in Jesus. We tell everyone we know about His amazing acts of love through His Church. We tell everyone we know that Jesus is going to return. There are many different methods of sharing our faith, but we must not stray from the most important -- simply telling others about Christ, and how His story transformed our story. Some may defend their belief systems and theology, but none can argue with your personal story of how Jesus changed you.

Take a few moments now and write out the story of when you gave control of your life over to Jesus. Who in your life is God putting on your mind right now that needs to hear that story?
