How Can I Witness?

Receive Power (Acts 1:8) “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” You cannot witness something you haven’t experienced yourself. 

Reconnect Through Prayer (James 5:16) “Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.”

a. Pray for boldness (Acts 4:31) “And when they had prayed, the place in which they were gathered together was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and continued to speak the word of God with boldness.”
b. Pray against fear (2 Timothy 1:7)
c. Pray for divine appointments (Acts 8:29-31) “And the Spirit said to Philip, “Go over and join this chariot.” 30 So Philip ran to him and heard him reading Isaiah the prophet and asked, “Do you understand what you are reading?” 31 And he said, “How can I, unless someone guides me?” And he invited Philip to come up and sit with him.”
d. Pray for the Holy Spirit’s guidance (Matthew 10:19) “When they deliver you over, do not be anxious how you are to speak or what you are to say, for what you are to say will be given to you in that hour.”
e. Pray for the salvation of the lost and for more laborers. (Matt. 9:37-38) “Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; 38 therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.”

Make Relationships a Priority (1 Corinthians 9:22-23) “To the weak I became weak, that I might win the weak. I have become all things to all people, that by all means I might save some. 23 I do it all for the sake of the gospel, that I may share with them in its blessings.”
