Becoming A Witness-Part 4

Posted By on Friday, September 01, 2017

Being a living martyr, we have so died to our self-life, that Jesus can express His life through our lives. Our being a “witness” then, is the expression of what we have “become” in Him. As we witness to Jesus, His life is reflected through the glory of His presence, and in that reflection, He can be seen by others.

“But we all, with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit.” II Corinthians 3:18 NASB

If we are “doing” witnessing, we are telling someone about Jesus. However, our “being” a witness means something far deeper. What we are “seen” to be, becomes very important, because we are saying or doing what Jesus would say or do, if He were here. We have become the “expression” of His life in the earth at this present time (a living martyr).

When Philip said, “Show us the Father,” Jesus’ reply was, “He that has seen Me, has seen the Father” (John 14:8-9). Jesus is saying, “My life is a witness of the Father to such an extent that if you have seen Me, you have seen the Father.”

We also are to be a “witness” (a sample) of Jesus Christ. Through the enabling power of the Holy Spirit, we should be able to say, “What I am saying and doing is a reflection of Jesus; thus, as you see me, you are seeing Jesus.”
