Why did Jesus choose Disciples and Apostles for Himself?
Jesus Chose them to be His friends! He sat with them and talked with them. He chose them to be with Him always and to teach them so that they become His witnesses and teach other people. “He who hears you hears Me…” (Luke 10:16). He chose them so that they become Apostles to carry the message of salvation to the whole world. “Go into the world and preach the Gospel to every creature” (Mark 16:15).
As Christians, God wants us to be his witnesses. The witnesses were called by St. Paul “vessels” carrying the name of God and filled with the Holy spirit. The Bible says that God does not leave Himself without a witness in all generations.
How do I become a witness for Jesus?
If we are True Christians, we must behave as sons and daughters of God. We must show our faith by our actions, if we are truly the witnesses of God. We have to serve the church and the world that we are living in. Be a good example, be Kind and responsible in helping other to get closer to God.
You shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth” (Acts 1:8)
