"FAN THE FLAME" FRIDAY - Witness
"Welcome to "Fan the Flame" Friday.
This is a weekly post that will be "short and sweet" (kinda like me...)
Just a word and a question (or few)…just a little something to
"fan the flame" of your creativity!
And, to further fan those faith-filled flames (try saying that 10 times in a row!) – I'm adding my favorite devotional from the week!
Today's word: witness
What does the word witness mean to you?
How can we be a witness to unbelievers?
Do you think we can also be a witness to other believers? If yes, in what ways?
What are the obstacles in your life that hamper your ability to be an effective witness?
If you had a chance to witness to someone about the Lord, what is the one aspect of His character that you would talk about?
Let me know what you think!!
"To everyone, then, who gives witness to me before men, I will give witness before my Father in heaven." (Matthew 10:32, BBE)
"And you also will bear witness, because you have been with me from the beginning." (John 15:27, NIV)
"And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations..." (Matthew 24:14, KJV)
"And they went out, preaching everywhere, the Lord working with them, and giving witness to the word..." (Mark 16:20, BBE)
"But I put no value on my life, if only at the end of it I may see the work complete which was given to me by the Lord Jesus, to be a witness of the good news of the grace of God." (Acts 20:24, BBE)
DEVOTIONAL OF THE WEEK:
God has many traits that make Him worthy of our praise and worship; His majesty; His glory; His mighty acts; His greatness; His goodness and His righteousness; His lovingkindness; His faithful love and His grace and compassion...We should tell every generation of God's mighty deeds and acts. Take a few minutes to consider the glory of God...Then make a point of telling someone else about the wonderful things that God has done for you.
*Help me to tell others of Your love and grace.
"One generation will commend Your works to another; they will tell of Your mighty acts. They will speak of the glorious splendor of Your majesty."
(Psalm 145:4-5, NIV)

"This is why I remind you to fan into flames the spiritual gift God gave you…For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline." (2 Timothy 1:6-7)
