Day 5: Witness-Servant

Friday, November 16th, 2012

Isaiah 43:10

10 “You are my witnesses,” declares the Lord,
“and my servant whom I have chosen,
so that you may know and believe me
and understand that I am he.
Before me no god was formed,
nor will there be one after me.

Reflection

A judge pounds his gavel and calls the witness to the stand. The witness answers the prosecutor’s questions and testifies to the truth about a particular incident. Once the questions are over, the witness steps down. And once down, his job as a witness is over and done. God calls us to be His witnesses. What does it mean to be witnesses for the Lord? It does mean testifying to the truth of who God is and what He has done. But it means much more than just stating the truth, especially when He also calls us to be His servants. A witness-servant goes beyond the mere testimony but serves in all and every way so that many will hear, many more will believe, and all will bow down in acknowledgement that Jesus Christ is Lord God Almighty.

Response

We do this not alone, but as the people of God, His church. In Acts 1:8, Jesus told the His followers “you will be my witnesses.” When the church testifies to the truth of God, a powerful proclamation goes out to the world that there is only one God. Let’s pray for all of the Agape churches – Ecclesia Paris, Ecclesia NYC, AHC, ALC and AMC. May our ministry, love and care for others attest to the truth that He alone can save and help us.
