Reflections on Saying-So (Witnessing)

Victoria Elliot

READ : Psalm 107:1-9   Many business corporations have “silent” partners. These people share in the dividends and earnings but never sit in a directors’ meeting. Many societies have “silent” members, too. And churches have them! Christ, however, does not want silent partners. The psalmist suggests in the Scripture, “Let the redeemed of the Lord SAY-SO.” God doesn’t expect the unconverted to be His advertising agents. But He does expect every soul whom He has redeemed from hell to be …
