THE HOLY SPIRIT AND PERSONAL WITNESSING
Holy Spirit Series Part 5 of 6
Bible Study with Alden Gannett
Week of May 26 to June 1, 2013
God has a program for all those who recognize Him as creator God and
author of redemption, love, forgiveness, liberty and grace. That
program is the reason Christianity has reached around the world and
introduced people to salvation full and free. The command to witness
has been given to us by Jesus in what we call the Great Commission.
However, we are not responsible for the results of our witness. That
is the role of the Holy Spirit. It is the Holy Spirit that takes our
love, concern and words and uses them in the life of the one being
witnessed to create thought, questioning and conviction in the heart of
a seeking person. We are only to “tell” of what Jesus Christ means to
us personally. The Holy Spirit will do the rest.
Witnessing must be natural and a part of our normal everyday life. The
best witness we can offer is how we conduct our daily living before
others, but there are times when we will be given opportunity for a
direct witness to someone’s seeking life. We don’t “go witnessing”.
We are witnessing anytime someone is watching and they know we
represent our Lord Jesus Christ.
This lesson, number five in a series of six lessons on the person and
work of the Holy Spirit, our source of victory in the Christian life.
Dr. Gannett always had the heart of an expositor, explaining God’s Word
and helping others make personal practical application of biblical
truth to their everyday life
Dr. Alden Gannett is now with the Lord after having “finished his
course” -- and finished it well”. As “stewards of words”, we’ve
preserved and archived his teachings of the unchangeable Gospel to
share and instruct the next generation. This is why his teaching ministry, through broadcast and Internet, continues after it’s
beginning in 1960 – 53 year’s ago.
