Isaiah 43:10 "You are my witnesses," declares the LORD, "and My servant whom I have chosen, that you may know and believe Me and understand that I am He. Before Me no god was formed, nor shall there be any after Me."
This is our biggest job right now: to be witnesses for the Master and the kingdom of God. We are His servants, witnessing and sharing the good news that He has invited everyone (who will) to become a part of His kingdom and know Him. As we express that witness, we will grow in our knowledge and undertstanding of Him and our faith will be strengthened as we see the kingdom forming and growing around us.
Make no mistake, this a challenege for all believers in these strange and tremulous times. There is no use in pre-built evangelism scripts, no gain to be had from false or artificial encounters that simply treat people as projects, no advantage in carefully manipulated conversations or slippery words. This is the moment for full-on heart engagement that changes lives, powered and inspired by the Spirit.
