Read this 60 Second devotion. Each day, based on our verse of the day, we will add one new label to our Christian identity. At the end of 30 Days, we will have a life affirming, identity forming declaration. This is life changing stuff! --- Day 14
The Word - "But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth." Acts 1:8 ESV
A Thought - A knock at the door reveals the two nicely dressed women on the front porch. "Hi, we're Jehovah's witnesses." Without missing a beat you respond with a big smile on your face, "Nice to meet you. I'm one of Jesus' witnesses." Wait, you don't. Why not? Jesus said to his disciples that they would be his witnesses. You're a disciple, so you are a witness too! You are a witness to Jesus' life, death and resurrection. You are witnesses to the truth of the Gospel and its life changing power. You are witnesses of God's righteous judgment and gracious love. I know many people are not comfortable speaking out loud about such things. I get it and it's ok. Try being a witness by simply living a life that witnesses to Jesus. You could win a soul without even speaking a word!
"Hi! I'm Scott and I'm one of Jesus' witnesses. And who might you be?"
My Prayer of Declaration - Lord, because of You, I am a New Creation, I am Forgiven, I am Reconciled to God, I am Free, I am Loved, I am complete, I am a citizen of Heaven, I am God's Child, I am Strong, I am not afraid, I am God's Masterpiece, His Ambassador, and His Witness. - All blessing, honor, glory, power and praise are Yours, Amen.
Touch the Hem of Jesus' Robe and transform your life, 60 seconds at a time. - Scott
