When we speak the truth and spread the message of reconciliation it is showing that we are victorious in Christ. Standing up and speaking the truth is not always easy, especially among those who claim to be Christians but base their salvation n on a different gospel, which is not a gospel at all. The message we bring is clearly stated in 1 Corinthians 15:3,4 believe that Christ died for our sins and was raised from the dead for salvation. Not accepting Him into your heart, being remorseful for sins, asking for forgiveness of sins, making Him the Lord of your life, praying the sinners pray. No, all we need to do is believe.

Acts 1:8 …but you will receive natural ability, when the Holy Spirit comes upon you, and you will be to me witnesses in both Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and up to the ends of the earth.
Do your words line up with your actions?
True evangelism does not come from speaking to everyone you meet about God, it is a natural result of you living your life according to who you are in Christ because by doing so you will show others a quality of God’s character. The threat of hell and damnation never saved anyone. Oh, it may bring hoards into the Churches at times, but they are not truly seeking to know the Lord. How a person comes to a saving faith in Christ is by the kindness of God, never by an expression of His wrath.
Actions always speak loader than words. Telling a person that you are a Christian and living a lifestyle that is no different than an unsaved person is no testimony at all. It just simply shows that you do not really believe what you are saying.
Before Christ ascends to the third heaven to sit upon the throne, He informs the apostles that the Holy Spirit will give them the natural ability to be His witnesses in all the earth. Christ did not instruct them to bear a witness, but rather, he told them they would be a witness. It is the same with us today. We are never told to go out and evangelize the world; rather, we are told to always be ready to give a defense for the hope that we have when we are questioned about it. Even the verse used for the Great […]
