Effective Witnessing

In the bible (KJV) Acts 26 chapter, Paul witnesses to King Agrippa and the people about his conversion and his experience on the Damascus Road. After telling them, He first persecuted the Christians. Jesus came into his life and sent him back to witness to the same people that he had beaten for witnessing. You must have a Damascus Road experience. You must be able to tell others how Christ came into your life. You must be able to persuade someone that the message of Jesus Christ is life-changing. People will REACT or RESPOND to your testimony. Be careful; do not have a self-­righteous attitude. If God's grace will save you, it will save others too. Paul's experience was unique; Jesus sent him to the people (Gentiles) with a PURPOSE. In Acts 26:18 Jesus said, "To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins; and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me." Then Paul tells the King that he was not disobedient to the heavenly vision and of his work in all of the region. Preaching the Word to the Gentiles, "that they should repent and turn to God, and do works meet for repentance." Paul's job was to convince the King and the people, verse 23. "That Christ should suffer, and that he should be the first that should rise from the dead, and should show light unto the people, and to the Gentiles."

Festus knew Paul and said to him, "You must be mad (crazy)." Paul responded to him by saying, I speak the truth. Then Paul asked King Agrippa if he believed. And the King RESPONDED by saying in verse 28, "Then Agrippa said unto Paul, Almost thou persuadest me to be a Christian." There are many people like the King; they are undecided. When we don't follow close to Christ, we can't persuade the world to come to Christ. Be an effective witness and learn to follow up; be sure to follow through.
