Scripture: Acts 10:34-41
In Acts 10:34-41 it says, “Then Peter opened his mouth and said: ‘In truth I perceive that God shows no partiality. But in every nation whoever fears Him and works righteousness is accepted by Him. The word which God sent to the children of Israel, preaching peace through Jesus Christ—He is Lord of all— that word you know, which was proclaimed throughout all Judea, and began from Galilee after the baptism which John preached: how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him. And we are witnesses of all things which He did both in the land of the Jews and in Jerusalem, whom they killed by hanging on a tree. Him God raised up on the third day, and showed Him openly, not to all the people, but to witnesses chosen before by God, even to us who ate and drank with Him after He arose from the dead.’” God chose witnesses beforehand! The key here is these witnesses were chosen before by God. Part of the choosing of God is that He chooses specific events for you and I to witness so that we can speak about them. Part of the assignment of being chosen includes witnessing certain events for God. We become a witness for God to certain things that have happened. We will be faithful to witness to the events we were appointed to? God chooses the poor, He chooses the weak, but He also chooses us just to witness things, because He knows we will speak up when it is time to declare that witness. Are you and I such people? Will we speak up when it is time to declare the witness for which we were chosen? I believe we will!
