Outreach. Just Be natural!
Jesus has commissioned us to be his witnesses wherever we go, as to
who He is and what He has done and is doing, and today is another
opportunity. Witnesses don't create the events, they report on the
events! Of course sometimes as a witness you have to demonstrate
what was done. So you may be called upon to demonstrate what Jesus
did, and to allow you to do this Jesus said that all believers would
be able to "Heal the sick, cleans lepers, raise the dead and cast
out devils". As a witness you've got the power, you've got to expect
Mark 16:17-18And these signs will accompany those
who believe: in my name they will cast out demons; they will speak in new tongues; .... they
will lay their hands on the sick, and they will recover.”
It's a good thing therefore that Jesus promised us and gave us the
Holy Spirit to dwell in us and provide the power to demonstrate Jesus'
works whenever and wherever required. We have to be believers who
actually believe, in order to do this but given that proviso, then
being a witness will come naturally as we "rest" in Jesus and let
Him do the work through us by Holy Spirit.
Obviously we are not to tempt God by doing anything silly or risking our
lives. Snakes and scorpions are referring to demonic forces and powers
for instance, but rather we are to follow the lead of Holy Spirit. When
we do this though, as Jesus said....
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.”
I hope that you as a Christian Believer will have a great time today
and every day in whatever you do, and you will do it unto the
Lord. And if the opportunity comes along to witness of Jesus, just
be natural knowing Holy Spirit is in you and just follow His guide.
Jesus has provided you with the power inside you to be naturally
