Our Witness Comes From Within
“And with great power the apostles were giving testimony to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and abundant grace was upon them all” (Acts 4:33 NASB). After the apostles had received the Holy Spirit, they were able to give powerful witness to the resurrection of Jesus. That dynamis power was a result of God’s grace, which they experienced in through the Holy Spirit now in them. They now had a knowing that the finished work of Jesus—grace—God permanently settled through the resurrection. They could now give a witness because they knew in that their heart that everything Jesus said was true. The power within them exploded into a strong witness for the Lord. That’s where our witness begins—within, by grace.
