(Rev 3:14) This is the last of the titles of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Believe it or not, we have looked at close to ninety different names over the past couple of years. Truly, the Lord Jesus Christ is wonderful, majestic, and beyond our compre- hension or description. The word witness was a favorite one with the Apostle John. He uses it over eighty times in his NT writings. Jesus is the True Witness. It was prophesied that He would come as a witness. Behold, I have him for a witness to the people, a leader and commander to the people (Isa 55:4). When Jesus was on earth, He confessed that He had come to be a witness: Pilate therefore said to him, 'Are you a king then?' Jesus answered, 'You say that I am a king. To this end I was born, and for this reason I came into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone that is of the truth hears my voice (John 18:37). In His final message to the churches, He could say of Himself that He had fulfilled His mission as a witness: And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans, write, 'These things says the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God (Rev 3:14). Furthermore Jesus commissioned His children to be witnesses: But ye shall receive power after that the Holy Spirit is come upon you; and ye shall be witnesses unto me... (Acts 1:8). What does it mean to be a witness for Jesus? I will suggest five things. First, it involves our words. Jesus died primarily because of what He said, not because of what He did. He was labeled a blasphemer for saying that He was God, the Troth. Then the high priest tore his clothes, saying, "He has spoken blasphemyt. What further need do we have of witnesses? Look, now you have heard His blasphemy t. What do you think?" They answered and said, "He is deserving of death." (Matt 26:65-66). Second, we have a message from God. We are to give out His Word. Believers are vessels giving forth the message of another. These are not our own words. It is humbling that we only tell what God has said. Our opinions don't matter much. But we must give forth God's message to a lost, sinful, dying world. Third, we tell what God has done for us. Ye are my wit- nesses, says the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen, that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am He; before me there was no God formed, wither shall there be after me (Isa 43:9, I0). What has God done for you? Has He purchased you with the blood of Christ, forgiven your sins, and promised you a home in heaven? If so, proclaim this good news to all you know. Fourth, we suffer opposition. To be a witness is to be a mar- tyr. We get our word martyr from the word for witness. We need to be willing to testify to what we have seen and heard, even to the point of death. Many in this world, especially in Islamic countries,: face this today. ' .... ' ' Finally, there can be reward:-There is the,hope of Jestls' sweet words, Well done, you good and faithful servartt!" " ....... Jesus Christ is the true Witness from the Father. He has sent those who know Him to be witnesses for Him. University on the Prairie offered for students Three-day program will explore science- related careers close to home Learning is fun at the University on the Prairie Program! Again this sum- mer, students in our region can have an adventure in science and career explora- tion that is closer to home than may be realized. The Southwest Research and Outreach Center (SWROC) is offering this popular pro- gram for the eighth year. University of Minnesota faculty from the Twin Cities campus and local professionals will join teachers from our region and SWROC scientists to guide students through hands-on exploration of sci- ence in five career areas important to the life and future of southwestern Minnesota: health science, food science, agriculture & environmental science, engineering, and chemistry. The program is unique in the state and offers students an opportunity to open doors to many career paths and will perhaps result in a future soil scientist, phar- macist, food safety inspec- tor, or chemist. The program features three full days of fun and hands-on activities at the SWROC laboratories, class- rooms and outdoors. The program is from 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, July 29th - Thursday, July 31, 2014. At a celebratory picnic Thursday evening, the students will share their enthusiasm with family and friends. Our health science instructor will continue the learning with a program for all attending the picnic. Registration is open for all students entering 7th- 12th grade. Total cost is $50 per student, including lunch, snacks, T-shirt, bag, water bottle, and the final picnic. Efforts will be made to arrange travel. For more information and to apply, students/parents are encour- aged to contact the SWROC at 752-7372 or download the application on our web- site at http://swroc.efans.
