"But you are my witnesses, O Israel!” says the LORD. “You are my servant. You have been chosen to know me, believe in me, and understand that I alone am God. There is no other God— there never has been, and there never will be" - Isaiah 43:10 (NIV).

It has become quite common these days to run into street preachers. Of course, by publicly sharing the Gospel, and leading lost souls to Christ, we praise God for this endeavor. However, in acknowledging this method we shouldn't lose sight of other equally powerful witness methods.

There was once a certain senior official who was made to lag in a banking queue. When he finally go to the counter the junior officer brought to his attention that his matter had certain gaps that needed attention. The senior official politely went back, sorted through the gaps, and stood back again in the queue.

Somehow as he was about to be served someone who knew his status came by and was shocked at the way he had humbled himself. Puzzled, he got to know what had motivated the official was because as a follower of Christ he felt it was important to set a good example for all.

Wait a minute now, is this common! And wouldn't you think the junior officer upon learning that this senior official was neither rude nor overbearing to him that in itself would be a good witness that might lead a non-believer to Christ!

Oh, of course, the scripture says, "how can they believe in him if they have never heard about him?" (Romans 10:14). But also, scriptures remind us, "By their deeds you will know them" (Mathew 7:16).

So, just you should remember, yes, we can witness by calling out for the lost but just at the same time the way we live, our personal conduct, can draw as many to Christ!

Prayer for today: Lord Father God of Abraham, maker of heaven and earth, make me your witness not just in words, but also by deeds, this I pray in Jesus' Name.

    "The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by human hands” (Acts 17:24)

    When in his missionary journey the Apostle Paul ventured into the city of Athens he was struck by two things. First, the Athenians spent most of the day doing nothing but talking about the latest ideas (Acts 17:21). In spite of that they could not figure out who the great God is and his plan for their salvation.

    Secondly, Paul noticed Athens was filled with temples and statutes all over. In fact he came across one altar marked with an inscription to an “unknown god” (verse 23). The Athenians were a very religious people, searching God but with no idea of his plans for salvation through Jesus.
    The experience of Paul travelling through Athens could be the same with any of us visiting our modern cities. It is easy to find folks arguing about where truth can be found on social media almost all day. And then also one can find temples of all nature rising across the city. This is usually where they have assigned and restricted God as folks go about their lives.

    One thing Paul reminded the Athenians is that in spite of all their great arguments and temples the truth was actually not far from them. “From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundary of their lands. God did this so that they should seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from any of us” (Acts 17:27-28).

    Today, you may find yourself in a situation similar to that of the Athenians, where you are searching for the truth, yet it is so close to you. “Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me” (Revelation 3:20).

    Prayer for today: Lord Father in heaven, today I pray in the blessed name of Jesus, to know and share the truth of your salvation like Paul did for you are not far from any who truly desires to know you, this I pray in Jesus’ name!
