How You Can Be a Fruitful Witness

Success in Evangelism

By Bill Bright

Expect results when you witness for Christ. But remember, however God chooses to use your faithfulness in witnessing, your responsibility is to present Christ. It is His responsibility to draw people to Himself. As I have said earlier, success in witnessing is simply taking the initiative to share Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit and leaving the results to God.

In these pages I have presented a biblical plan that will enable you to be successful in reaching others for Christ. First, you must begin by preparing yourself:

  1. Be sure you are a Christian.
  2. Be sure there is no unconfessed sin in your life.
  3. Be filled with the Spirit.
  4. Be prepared to communicate your faith in Christ.

Then, you must take the initiative by:

  1. Praying.
  2. Going to others.
  3. Talking about the Lord Jesus.
  4. Expecting God to use you.

Following this plan consistently will enable you to be fruitful for God as a way of life. No other experience in this world can compare to that of witnessing for Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit. Will you join me in this adventure?

Remember, How You Can Be a Fruitful Witness is a transferable concept. You can master it by reading it six times; then pass it on to others as our Lord commands us in Matthew 28:20, "Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you." The apostle Paul encouraged us to do the same: "The things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable men who will also be qualified to teach others" (2 Timothy 2:2).
