I thank you Father for another day to give you all the glory, praise and honor. I thank you for another day to be all that I can and should be. I thank you even more for another day to declare that you are God, and that Jesus Christ is the only way to have eternal life and have it more abundantly.
Today dear Papa, I say a BIG THANK YOU for the opportunity and privilege to be A WITNESS TO THE GOSPEL OF MY LORD AND SAVIOUR JESUS CHRIST. I am thankful that I am able to 'freely' - without shame or reproach - tell people about the love of Jesus Christ, about Life that they will receive through Him.
I am thankful to be a witness because it gives me the opportunity to show love, as I am commanded to in John 13:34, "A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another."
I am thankful to be a witness because it gives me the opportunity to show compassion as I am commanded in 1 Peter 3:8, "Finally, all of you, live in harmony with one another; be sympathetic, love as brothers, be compassionate and humble."
I am thankful that I am able to show people what I have found in Jesus Christ - Life, love, peace, hope and joy. I am thankful that I am able to show people that Jesus Christ is the only way to live a life of destined purpose.
I am thankful for the opportunity to witness Jesus Christ to someone because it helps me to hold on fast to the believe I have in God. It also helps me to grow in the knowledge of and closer to God, as I have to be diligent in Bible study, memorising scriptures and praying not just for myself, but those who I might meet through divine appointments. I am thankful because all these helps me to be ready to explain the hope I have in Jesus Christ, in you, as I am encouraged to in 1 Peter3:15 "but sanctify in your hearts Christ as Lord: being ready always to give answer to every man that asketh you a reason concerning the hope that is in you, yet with meekness and fear."
So today, Papa, I say a BIG THANK YOU, for giving me all the opportunities to declare my Lord and saviour Jesus Christ, as the truth and the only way to truly LIVE. I am thankful for the desire, hunger and willingness to want to share who Jesus Christ, yes, indeed it is a gift from you; I could never conjure that up myself, even if I tried. Father, I pray that I make good use of every single opportunity you give me, and that you are always glorified in it. In the mighty name of Jesus Christ I praise, Thanks and Pray. Amen.
Much Love, Remi
