Shrinking from personal witness or Sharing our Faith (Acts 1:8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
The Holy Bible: New International Version (Grand Rapids, MI: Zondervan, 1984), Ac 1:8.
We each have our story and the story to tell, for in the sharing of our story and the story, others come to find that they too have been written into this redemptive drama. Paul could not be clearer about the privilege that is ours when he wrote that the gospel “is the power of God for salvation” (Romans 1:16). God has entrusted to us the story of the visited planet, and telling it is the means that he uses to melt human hearts.
