Be a Witness

Be a Witness

Witness of His death,
Share the word with every breath.
Win the world one by one,
With the greatest message under the sun.

Preach the word every day,
Catch a fish in any way.
Use different bait for them to bite,
Get turned on and light your light.

Witness what He’s doing too,
How He made your heart brand new.
Tell everybody, one and all,
That He paid the price for Adam’s fall.

Let your life serve as an open book,
That would interest people to look.
That what they saw would light a spark,
So they would come out of the dark.

God commands you to go,
To the world you must show.
The passion that you have for Him,
That you’re not afraid, a soul to win.

God sent His Son to die for you,
But witness they are only a few.
That people would only obey His word,
So that the gospel message would be heard.

Be a Witness

    Father, help me tell of Your work in my life, how You saved me and are walking with me each day.
    I want to be a witness of Your goodness and mercy to those around me.
    Let my life be an open book that draws others to ask about what I believe, so I can speak of how Your Son died for them too, and how they can get to know Him.
    I ask this in the Name of Jesus. Amen.

Today’s Bible verse: Dan. 12:10 a KJV "Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried."

Today’s quote: Jaime Fernandez Garrido - "We serve God whether people honor or despise us, whether they slander or praise us. One day "each of us will give an account of ourselves to God" (Rom. 14:12). That doesn't mean that we shouldn't consider what people think of say, but ultimately, we make pleasing God our main concern. We want to hear our Savior say, "Well done, good and faithful servant!" (Matt. 25:23). [Taken from ODB, 11/20/15]

Some thoughts today: It matters who you're serving. Look to the Lord for recognition, as He's the One you need to please, both now, and into eternity.

~ We can cultivate our love of the Lord and starve affections for idolic worshipping. We can't let anything take God's place in our hearts. Let Him be ultimate in all your life. He's worthy of your praise and adoration. (Check out my recent post, Geese and Difficult People to see the Attributes of God) 

~ God wants us to enjoy His creation. He made it for our pleasure, as well as for all our needs to survive.
