Are u a witness?

“…but you shall receive power (ability, efficiency, and might) when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you shall be My witnesses in Jerusalem and all Judea and Samaria and to the ends (the very bounds) of the earth…” Acts 1:8 AMP [italics & emphasis mine]

A witness is someone who has firsthand knowledge about a crime or dramatic event through their senses (e.g. seeing, hearing, smelling, touching) and can help certify important considerations to the crime or event (www.wikipedia.org). To be a valid witness, you must have either experienced or seen ‘with your own eyes’ what you want to be a witness about. If a confession is made to you, you could be a witness to confession but not to the act.

Jesus said that when the power of the Holy Spirit comes upon us, we will be ‘His Witness’; this means that we will experience at first hand the power of God as a result of what Jesus did THEN and only then do we become witnesses. Therefore, when we give ‘testimony’, when we talk of ‘salvation’ experience, we are giving a witness account of the events. The next time you testify in fellowship (or talk to unbeliever about God), make sure you are a witness of the account you give.
