Acts 6:8-7:60

Acts 7:60Vintage message from December 1, 1996.

“The greatest witness you can be,…the greatest example you can be, the greatest argument you can have against a dying and unbelieving world, is just simply knowing the facts of history, sharing what God has already done in this world…
Sometimes we will be faced with hardships. We will be faced with people who want to condemn us, and the greatest defense that we have is history. The greatest defense that we can make is by sharing a testimony of what we already know has happened, and then we leave it in God’s hands from there…And the fact is, usually when you tell someone the truth about themselves they don’t like it, especially a heart that does not have the Holy Spirit in it…
Understand that you will find opposition in your life. You will tell the truth to people, and they will not like it, but you know the only thing that really matters is your response. How you respond to those who are angry at you for telling the truth. Have you told them the truth in love?…If you’ve done that, then you have nothing to fear…It does not matter what’s going on out there. What matters is what God is doing…God has called us to live a life of forgiveness, no matter what the consequences are to us.”
