Lord, there is a saying,
“If we could be condemned
for witnessing to our faith
would there be enough evidence
to convict us?”
This saying gives many Christians pause.
They would say, “It’s one thing to believe,
but it’s another thing to tell others.”
It is one thing to love you,
but another thing to talk about it
except in places like church.
Help us, Lord, to fully live
the life of your kingdom. Amen.
So when they had come together, they asked him, “Lord, is this the time when you will restore the kingdom to Israel?” He replied, “It is not for you to know the times or periods that the Father has set by his own authority. But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
