A Witness

July 26

Daily Bible Reading: Acts 26

Verse of the Day: Acts 26:16 – “But arise, and stand upon thy feet: for to this end have I appeared unto thee, to appoint thee a minister and a witness both of the things wherein thou hast seen me, and of the things wherein I will appear unto thee;”

In Acts 26, Paul shows us how to witness to others. A witness simply tells what they have experienced or seen. It is a word about the greatest Hope in all the world.

Paul starts with his pre-Christ life, then describes what happened at his conversion, and then shares about his life after conversion. Really, any of us should be able to do the same thing. And when we do, a person can’t argue about what was, and now is. It is simple and easy to talk about what God has done for us.

And the results, we leave them up to God. Even Paul did not lead everyone to accept Christ. Verse 28 states, “And Agrippa said unto Paul, With but little persuasion thou wouldest fain make me a Christian.”

Prayer, Father give me boldness to speak.
