In light of the scripture reference, how important is our witness?
John 15:27 And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning.
Matthew 15:18 But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man.
“Study your great Exemplar, and be filled with his Spirit. Remember that you need much teaching, much upholding, much grace, and much humility, if your witnessing is to be to your Master’s glory.” - C.H. Spurgeon
“Whenever God gives us an opportunity of being useful to others, he expects we should improve it, according to our capacity and ability.” – Matthew Henry
Stand in His grace,
Bible Answer: Dear WOS,
Thanks for the good question.
Matt 3:3 For this is the one referred to by Isaiah the prophet when he said,
"THE VOICE OF ONE CRYING IN THE WILDERNESS,
'MAKE READY THE WAY OF THE LORD,
MAKE HIS PATHS STRAIGHT!'"
Although the above scripture was meant for John the Baptist, I think it still applies to us being Jesus' witness as He has commanded in Acts 1:8. Else, we are just the STUMBLING STONES for others along the road.
Just my 2 cents.
