Witnessing of What You Have Seen and Heard

Words of Ministry

Acts 22:15 For you will be a witness to Him unto all men of the things which you have seen and heard. 1 John 4:14 And we have beheld and testify that the Father has sent the Son as the Savior of the world.

Words of Ministry How long will the light of a candle last? Of course, the light will go out when the candle burns out. But if we light another candle with this one, the light will double in intensity. Will the light of the first candle diminish because it has lit the second? No. The light of each candle will last until the candle burns out. But when the first light goes out, the second will still be burning. If we keep on lighting more candles--ten, a hundred, or a thousand candles--the light will never go out. This explains the testimony of the church. When the Son of God was on the earth, He lit the first candle. After that, more candles were lit one after another. This goes on and on even today. Brothers and sisters, do you want your light to continue, or do you want to see it end when your candle is extinguished? He does not expect the light to end with you.
[Every Christian]
must do his best to testify to others and lead others to the Lord so that the testimony may continue on this earth from generation to generation. From
[Acts 22:15]
we see that the basis of witnessing is what we have seen and heard. Paul saw something with his own eyes and heard something with his own ears. You have met Him, believed in Him, received Him, and gained Him. You have been delivered from sins, received forgiveness, and obtained peace. You have seen and heard something. You should testify of your experience.
