For you are to be His witness, telling everyone what you have seen and heard. – Acts 22:15 (NIV)
In the first century Church, many thousands of people had experienced the human Christ: seen Him, heard Him, felt His healing touch. This first hand experience energized a powerful witness for another hundred years and as we know, the followers of Jesus Christ exploded across the known world.
Today, the twenty-first century Church is far removed from the Christ of the flesh, and our witness is dependent on His power in our flesh. We are the only “Jesus” with hands and feet in the world today, so we must be His witness with our whole life.
