Too Good Not to Share. The gospel is too good not to share. 

[John] came as a witness to testify concerning that Light, so that through Him, JESUSโœ๏ธCHRIST, ALL might believe.โ€”John 1:7

During court proceedings, witnesses are more than onlookers or spectators. They are active participants who help determine the outcome of a case. The same is true of our witness for CHRIST. We are to be active participants in a matter of absolute importanceโ€”the truth of JESUSโ€™S death and resurrection.

When John the Baptist came to tell people about JESUS, the light of the world, he did so by declaring his knowledge of JESUS. And John the disciple, who recorded the events, testified of his experience with JESUS: โ€œWe have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only SON, who came from the FATHER, full of grace and truthโ€ (John 1:14). The apostle Paul would elaborate on this idea as he told young Timothy, โ€œThe things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach othersโ€ (2 Tim. 2:2).

ALL CHRISTโœ๏ธians have been summoned before the courtroom of the world. The Bible says we are not mere spectators but active participants. We testify to the truth about JESUSโ€™S death and resurrection. John the Baptist was the voice of one calling in the desert. Our voices can be heard in our workplace, neighborhood, church, and among our family and friends. We can be active witnesses, telling them about the reality of JESUS in our lives. โ€”Lawrence Darmani

Do our actions enable us to witness for JESUS?

In what creative ways might we witness today?

The gospel is too good not to share. 

INSIGHT: The Bible uses various metaphors to describe the believerโ€™s role as a witness for CHRIST (John 15:5; 2 Cor. 3:1-3; 5:20; 1 Peter 2:5, 9). In one of His teachings, JESUS used two common household itemsโ€”salt and lightโ€”to emphasize the positive influence a CHRISTโœ๏ธians ought to have on the community he lives in (Matt. 5:13-16). Salt is a preservative, a flavor-enhancer, and a thirst stimulant. A lamp is intended to illuminate the darkness. The light too serves as signage, giving information and direction to a destination. Therefore, the light must be placed in a conspicuous position to attract and to be effective. Bible teacher Henry Morris says we are โ€œexpected to bring the salt of preservation and joy to a bland, tasteless, and otherwise decaying world, and the light of salvation to a dark, sinful world.โ€  Sim Kay Tee
