For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard. -Acts 4:20 (NKJV)
Too often we may feel as if we have to be someone special in order to be a witness. That notion tends to keep us bound by fear and anxiety which will ultimately stop us from saying or doing anything for God. I believe we can learn a valuable lesson from the early disciples of Jesus in the above verse. When they were commanded not to preach or teach in the name of Jesus Christ they didn’t lay down a theological discourse for the religious leaders. Their response was simple. They spoke of the things they witnessed for themselves.
Those things which you have seen and heard about Jesus is enough for you to be a witness to those around you.
God’s not asking you to be the best orator or have the most profound stories. God’s looking for you to be available and to tell the truth. To speak those things that you know to be true based on what you’ve heard and seen him do. It takes everyone doing their part and God needs you to be a witness.
The question I believe we must ask today is, “Am I going to be silent about what God has done in my life.”
