Christians are followers of Jesus Christ. The Bible records the words of Jesus when he explained the concept of witnesses (King James Version Luke 24:48-49)
"And ye are witnesses of these things." Jesus continued by noting that the disciple should not go out to witness until the Holy Ghost was available because of the great power that would accompany the Holy Ghost.Today Christians do not have to wait for the power of the Holy Ghost to come. The power of the Holy Spirit is here if only Christians would ask for the help of the person of the Holy Spirit.
The next way the Christian can be a great witness is to use and study God's word in everyday life. Once Satan asked Jesus to turn a stone into bread.
Jesus replied with the word of God. We as Christians should develop God's ways
when we are attacked to Satan. God's word should be a part of our daily lives.
The third way to witness is to have a successful prayer life. Pray helps a Christian to get closer to Jesus and the heavenly Father. Practicing the attitude of prayer throughout the day helps Christians to practice the word of God in throughout the day. Christian do not need to wait to pray at home. Prayer can take place anywhere that the Christian is present. Daily and consistent prayer allows the Christian to communicate with the heavenly Father to create a closer relationship. By communicating with God one can get direct instructions to speak into someone's life and solve their problem.
Another way to be a witness for God is praise and worship. When Christians praise God, we are thankful for what he has blessed us with. We acknowledge his mighty works from the past, present and future. However, worship is a deeper demonstration of not just thanking God for what he has done, but for his magnificent value to us. We are proud to belong to God because he first loved us. God also gave us Jesus who made the greatest sacrifice that is available to all.
The ultimate way to witness for God is to have a lifestyle that glorifies the heavenly Father. As Christians build relationships with others who are not saved, daily demonstration of a Christian lifestyle speaks louder that any confession.
