Being A Witness For Jesus


A preacher went into a discount department store and walked to the back to buy some fishing tackle. As he was standing at the counter, he asked, “What is a good lure for bass?” The man standing next to him began to talk about fishing lures, good places to catch bass, how to use a particular lure, and this and that. And he kept talking.

The preacher bought one of the lures and the man kept talking. The preacher left the store and the man followed him out to his car. He was getting into his car and the man was still talking to him about catching bass. Do you think that man loved fishing? You bet he did!

Now, if you took that same man and put him in a church and said, “Sir, go out and share Jesus Christ,” he might say, “Oh, I can’t talk. I don’t know how to do that.” Do you know what his problem is? Jesus Christ is not as real to him as a bass.

Friend, when Christ has changed your life, you will be a witness unto Him. Acts 1:8 says, “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 Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.”
