I have said many times, “I’m glad you told me”. Have you? Some of those situations would have had a different outcome if I had not been told about something. Those people who spoke up, I consider them faithful to the situation. As Christians, we have a faithful witness who shared the Gospel with us; whether we were willing to listen the first time or we were repeatedly confronted by someone, they were faithful. We have a Faithful Witness we can be thankful for today.
The Faithful Witness
When Jesus came to earth, He had one focus – winning the lost. Because of this, He came under fire which was all part of God’s plan.
While Jesus was standing before Pilate, He told him why He was there. To this end was I born and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. (John 18:37) Jesus was faithful to His Father by coming to earth. He was faithful to the promise that was prophesied by the prophets years before. He was faithful to the people of the world at that time when He spoke the truth. Jesus was faithful to the cause even when He was persecuted.
When I think about these words (He could have called ten thousand angels To destroy the world and set Him free) from the song Ten Thousand Angels, I’m humbled. Jesus had the power to destroy the earth long before He was even hanging on the cross, but He didn’t. Jesus was faithful to you and me; He was faithful to the cause.
Jesus was faithful when He died on the cross and rose from the dead on the third day. Stop and think about what all Jesus did and what His earthly body went through. He was the Faithful Witness.
Are we willing to be that faithful in sharing the Gospel?
