Has anyone ever witnessed to you? I’m not talking about the wild-eyed guy standing on a street corner yelling that the end is near or the insistent lady who pushes a religious tract into your hand or evangelists knocking on your door. I’m talking about a friend, relative or stranger who deeply moves you by quietly telling you about a dark time in their life made bearable by God’s love. Have you, yourself, been such a witness?
Like John the Baptist, who testified to the Light that had come into the world in the person of Jesus, we are called to bear witness, so that all may know that there is a God, not in some far off heaven, but with us now.
