A witness only shares his faith experience and then leaves the outcome up to the judge or jury.
In the same way, we share the Good News, our faith, when the Holy Spirit takes over.
What was most effective about the Samaritan woman’s testimony was the joy that overflowed from her changed heart.
She went from being a woman who drew water in the heat of the day to actively engaging everyone she knew to tell of her wonderful experience.
Her simple testimony was highly effective.
“Many of the Samaritans from that town believed in him because of the woman’s testimony.”
Do you want God to use you more this year to witness to the wonder of His love, mercy, and grace?
Start with a confession of any sin in our own hearts and repentance.
Pray and ask for a pure heart so you can go forward with His work.
Then, go tell—the story of how you came to know Jesus and all that He has done for you. Someone you know needs to hear it!
Pray: God, I pray for a pure heart and a joyful spirit that I might be a witness for You. Help me to be obedient to what You have called me to do and then trust You with the rest.
This is my Word of Hope for you, my friend.
