When my attempts to witness to others don’t go according to plan, I’ll often wonder why Jesus didn’t just finish up all this work while He was still here on Earth. Yet, He’s chosen to use me despite all my flops and failures. I’m nowhere near perfect, definitely don’t have the wisdom to fend off the Pharisees of our time, nor the ability to walk on water. (last I checked) And yet…Christ has equipped and empowered me, broken and messed up me to be a part of His plan and purpose till He returns. Lord, may I not lose sight of Your handiwork in my life as I seek to witness to those around me.
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.
