It's a Sacrifice to Witness!

Like the lady said when she was told she needed to go out witnessing, "Oh, this just kills me!" Well, that's exactly what it should do! -- It should kill your pride, your self, your selfishness, your egotism, & may even cause some considerable physical sacrifice & strain. (See John 12:24,25.)

Sometimes it's actually dangerous to witness!--You're liable to get some persecution. But we still have to do it! All the early Apostles died as martyrs, as well as a good many of the early Christians, but they continued to be faithful witnesses just the same! But when the church left the arena & started sitting in the grandstands in order to avoid death by braving the lions, she died of old age in the stands!--It's better to die as a witness in the jaws of the lions than of old age in the grandstand! Jesus Himself promised that if you would suffer with Him you should also reign with Him! (2Tim.2:12) So are you going to reign now a little while & suffer a lot later?--Or are you going to suffer a little now & reign forever?

"They that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; & they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever & ever!" (Dan.12:3)
