“But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto Me…“ (Acts 1:8).
One of the terms used most frequently in the New Testament to describe the Christian message is the Greek word “evangelion,” which means “Good News.” The English word “evangelism” is derived from that and simply means “sharing the Good News.”
Jesus says to each of us, “witness.” So, whatever your position, profession, or platform, we are to share the “Good News.”
If we think of ourselves as soldiers, then, these are our marching orders.
If we think of ourselves as spiritual statesmen, going out to find a spiritual republic, then, this is our constitution.
If we think of ourselves as philanthropists, then, this is our manual of universal beneficence.
If we think of ourselves as spiritual physicians, then, this is our sovereign remedy for sin-sick souls.
If we think of ourselves as teachers, then, this is our textbook.
If we think of ourselves as preachers, then, we have the fundamental principles of our discourses, directed to disclose a Savior’s love and power, and the lost souls’ supreme need of Him.
Every child of God bears the responsibility to share the “Good News” in one form or another. Will you be a witness?
