“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1:8 NLT

This is what happened to the members of ACTS when they turned their lives over to the care Vance website picture 2of God and made Jesus our Lord and Savior! The power of the Holy Spirit came upon us and our lives began to change. Now we have become witnesses in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria and to the ends of the world.

First we became witness to ourselves and to our families which is our Jerusalem. We sought out God’s word and began to let God renew our minds by changing the way we think. Romans 12:2 says “Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect. “In order to tell people about Jesus and what he has done in our lives we had to un-conform our way of thinking from what the world tells us and that is don’t tell anybody about Jesus!

Second we had to carry the message of hope to Judea which is our work place, grocery store post office and church. Jesus said in Mark 8:38, “If anyone is ashamed of me and my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will be ashamed of him when he comes in his Father’s glory with the holy angels.” In other words if you are bold for Christ before men, He will be bold for you before the Father! We need bold peace, bold joy, bold favor and bold blessings in our lives. We miss out on favor and blessings when we are silent to ourselves and others!

Thirdly we carry the message to Samaria or those in homeless shelters, on the streets, missions, celebrate recoveries, hospitals, retirement homes and churches. We volunteer our time, treasures and talents to impact God’s Kingdom through our music and the preached word! And you can help us impact the Kingdom with your time, treasures and talents too! Let God renew you by changing the way you live and think so you can become a witness for His Son Jesus!
