Guilty witness?

*Picture of me holding my hand up*

I was pondering this verse today

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”   Acts 1:8

I got a little chuckle thinking who alone could make the ‘guilty’ a witness?  Of course the answer is Jesus Christ.

I’ve been witnessing to someone who commented on one of my previous blogs.  They made the claim that they do not believe Jesus is their Savior, and then went on to expound on their god.  I wonder on what  exactly this person bases all of these beliefs?  I remember well my foundation for unbelief was based on denial.

They claim to know God, but they deny him by what they do.  Titus 1:16

As I have been wrestling in prayer for this person two things dawned on me.  The first is that I became more aware of how the Holy Spirit must have grieved over my thirty four years of unbelief, and second, witnessing to someone who has no faith gives me a humble appreciation for the gift of faith that is within me.

“No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him, and I will raise him up at the last day.”        ~ Jesus as recorded in John 6:44

Only the guilty can witness to the Truth.

Father God, I lift this unknown person up to you, Lord.  You know them.  You know all about them.  You know why they have rejected you.  I pray that before they die they will become a witness for You, too.  Thank you for making this guilty person see!  Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus! Romans 8:1  In Jesus’ name, Amen

Hi! My name is Amy. I am a former atheist and, for a season, practiced witchcraft. God drew me out of darkness 17 years ago and gave me the spiritual gifts of knowing and faith. He gives me daily encouragement and affirmation and I hope to share Him with you. If you have not yet met the one true God, His name is Jesus Christ, and may I be the first to introduce you to Him? He is the Restorative Savior God promised Adam and Eve 6,000 years ago (Genesis 3:15) after they had sinned in the garden, bringing separation from God because of disobedience. It is rightly reported that a little over 2,000 years ago in Bethlehem He was born of a virgin, lived a blameless perfect life in and around Jerusalem, died on a cross on Golgotha for the world's sin, and 3 days later rose again. YES! ROSE AGAIN! AMAZING! Please get baptized in His name, and walk in an eternal restored fellowship with Christ. You can get to know Him by reading, marking, and inwardly digesting His Word.... His Holy Bible.
