Let God speak – through you!

Acts 21:15-22:16
Here, we focus on two brief phrases – ‘the things that God had done’ (19) and you will be a witness for Him’ (22:15). In the work of God we must learn to hold these two things together – divine power and human witness. Without the power of God, no one will come to faith in Christ: ‘It is the God who said, “Let light shine out of darkness”, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ’. How does God work? – He works through human witnesses: ‘we preach…Jesus Christ as Lord’. How are divine power and human witness related to each other? – ‘We have this treasure in earthen vessels to show that the transcendent, superior, all-surpassing power belongs to God and not to us’ (Corinthians 4:5-7). Let God speak – through you!
