You are my witnesses, declares the Lord, and my servant whom I have chosen, so that you may know and believe me and understand that I am He. Isaiah 43:10
“Use me,” Two little words — a verb and a pronoun. What’s the big deal, you say? Put the two together, speak them sincerely to God, and mean it. In the natural realm, it may seem insignificant, but in the spiritual world there are huge repercussions. It means a solider has been added — a marine, ready to be the first to fight for souls — It means God’s man gets promoted from a player to the starting lineup — It means conversations about Christ and countless eternal consequences start spinning out into solid patterns, and most of all it means salvation, connection, and transformation of lives.
Willingness on the part of God’s man to share the gospel is weapons-grade plutonium in spiritual warfare because telling someone about Christ in your life requires humility and faith. These are the two most powerful agents of spiritual conductivity because they shatter selfish pride and strike an explosion of confidence in your spiritual life.
Your spiritual life comes full circle when you are willing to give away the same news you received and accepted yourself. You own the faith now instead of just leasing it when convenient. You have risked combining responsibility with willing availability to speak truth about Him the savior of mankind. No other experience can compare. It is the ultimate risk-reward setup whether you see positive results in your availability or not. God’s word will not return to him void. According to Jesus, God’s man can choose to experience the power of God by deciding to share his faith. Jesus put it this way to His guys: “You will receive power when the Holy Spirit come on you, and you will be my witness in Jerusalem, and in Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth” (Acts 1:8). Whoa! Now that’s a blast zone.
Father, I know my motivation to share Jesus is grasping your love for me.
