How Can We Testify to People About Jesus?
“We have found him of whom Moses in the Law and also the prophets wrote, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.”
4. Finally, Jesus Himself uses Scripture to explain Himself to Nathanael: "you will see heaven opened, and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man" is a reference to Jacob's vision of the ladder stretching from heaven down to earth, which is an image of Jesus.
We have here a clear pattern for our own witnessing to others of Jesus: Personal testimony informed by Scripture is a powerful tool to bring others to Jesus. Two things are needed for us to be able to offer this kind of testimony: Knowing the Bible well enough to explain Jesus in Scripture terms and knowing Jesus well enough to be able to offer a personal testimony of our knowledge of Him.
If we know the Bible and we know Jesus, we can offer people what they really need, not our own opinion but the testimony of God to the life found in Jesus alone. May God prepare us and be pleased to use us to bring others to Jesus, just as He used John the Baptizer, Andrew and Philip.
Prayer Based on Psalm 150:
Praise the Lord!
May You be praised, O God, in Your sanctuary;
in Your mighty heavens!
May You be praised for Your mighty deeds;
praised according to Your excellent greatness!
Let us praise You with trumpet sound;
praise You with lute and harp!
Praise You with tambourine and dance;
praise You with strings and pipe!
Praise Yoy with sounding cymbals;
praise You with loud clashing cymbals!
Let everything that has breath praise You, Lord!
Praise the Lord!
