Are You a Witness?

Are You a Witness? I Daily Walk Devotion

When most people think of the term witness, they think of being called into court and having to answer questions from a lawyer. The truth is you can be a witness to many other events. You can go to a sporting event and witness an extraordinary performance by an athlete. Peter was a witness to the resurrection of Jesus Christ, and he wasn’t afraid to tell anyone. Are you a witness to the life-transforming power of Jesus Christ?

‭‭ACTS‬ ‭3:14-15

“But you disowned the Holy and Righteous One and asked for a murderer to be granted to you, but put to death the Prince of life, the one whom God raised from the dead, a fact to which we are witnesses.”

A Changed Man

Peter didn’t hold back when he was brought before the Sanhedrin. He told them that they rejected the Messiah and chose a murderer instead. He flat-out accuses them of murdering Jesus. None of it mattered because the Almighty God raised Jesus from the dead, and Peter was a witness to His resurrection. The Pharisees could lodge all the accusations they wanted. The Apostles had evidence on their side.

Pray for Boldness

Don’t you love the boldness in Peter? It was a stumbling block while Jesus was on earth, but maturity and the presence of the Holy Spirit have turned that into a good thing. After Pentecost, he became a witness to the transforming power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. That rough-around the edges fisherman had changed into a mighty vessel used by God.

Are You a Witness?

Are you a witness? Does your life speak of the transforming power of Jesus Christ? Do you take the opportunity to share the Gospel when presented with the chance? If Jesus has changed you, you should be excited to tell others. Experiencing God’s amazing grace will spur in you a desire for others to receive it as well. It should produce a boldness that can’t be extinguished by intimidation.
