Witnessing Power Acts 1:8 But ye shall receive power after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you; and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the world. The writer, Luke explains what happens after receiving the Holy Ghost (Spirit) and the power in which believers will perform the task of witnessing and where. Believers will be baptized in the Holy Spirit to effectively witness Christ to the entire world as they will witness with such boldness as never before. The Holy Spirit gives believers the power to witness about the righteousness and truth of Christ in both words and deeds. Additionally, the believer has a personal testimony of the saving power of Christ and the convicting work of the indwelling Holy Spirit. Believers can testify of the personal presence of Jesus and the intimate relationship with Him. Through this personal relationship with Christ, believers can also testify of the love for and of God and the desire to live holy unto Him and honor Him as the believer become more Christ-like. The reason for witnessing is to carry the message of Christ to a lost world so that the unsaved can be saved. Being saved is the result of witnessing the good news of Christ. What is the good news? Christ's death, burial and resurrection. Just look at what God done for us; therefore, stand up and be a witness for the Lord. Witness! Witness! There is power in witnessing Christ.
