Power to Witness

What does a witness do? A witness is one who has seen something and then shares it. Yesterday we looked at how confession and forgiveness give us the freedom to watch God work in us. We must move forward and not get stuck looking at mistakes from the past--they have been confessed, forgiven and wiped clean. We must refuse to focus on the seeds the devil has planted. Instead, we need to embrace the power of the Holy Spirit to look for God's hand on our lives and on those around us. We know, Jesus came to destroy the work of the devil and He is victorious. So, today the verse that seemed to jump out at me was this:

But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. (Acts 1:8)

Living in Christ gives us the power to see and to share with others the vision of God's glorious work!
