Your Life Is a Witness

That can be good news…or bad news. Either way, the fact is that we are witnesses. 

Most of us like to impress others. That can also be good thing…or a bad thing. The Bible is filled with commendations for those Christians whose lives glorified the Lord and who were a blessing to others, especially to their brothers and sisters in Christ. But their witness didn’t stop there. Even their enemies or unsaved spouses were sometimes changed by the words and actions of these believers in the true God.

Among those in Thessalonica, who had “received the word in much affliction, with joy,” a strong witness went out, “…so that [they] were ensamples [examples] to all that believe in Macedonia and Achaia…but also in every place [their] faith to God-ward is spread abroad…” (1 Thessalonians:1:6-8).

We are both impressed and blessed by the extraordinary examples of witnessing found in Scripture. Yet, sadly, sometimes we miss the fact that our own witness among our families, especially our children, is just as significant. And truthfully, that is where it needs to begin.
