Living as Witnesses

At CrossWay yesterday we continued with the Real Life series.  This third week was “Living as Witnesses.”  We read 1 Thessalonians 2:1-12, 17-20; 4:11-12 and talked about what it means to live as witnesses for Jesus Christ.

To be a witness simply means to truthfully share with others what we have seen and heard.

This passage teaches two ways to be witnesses: First, through our actions.  This is done through our lifestyle and our relationships.  Second, through our words.  St. Francis of Assisi is credited with saying, “Preach the gospel at all times; if necessary, use words.”  This quote captures the basic idea of this passage: sharing the gospel requires both word and action.

I’m still trying to catch up on the podcasts–hopefully it’ll be up soon.

We were also blessed yesterday to have the youth praise band from Stevenson United Methodist Church in Berlin as our guests.  They led us in worship through music and did an excellent job!
