I have been reading Disciplines of a Godly Man. I am on the chapter: The Discipline of Witness.
The immediate reflex of Andrew’s heart from his newfound knowledge of Christ was that everyone must know him, and it has been likewise with all who really meet Christ.
And it has been likewise with all who really meet Christ. Yes, I believe that to be true. I recall that time in my own life.
Men, we must not let the self-evident nature of the truth dull us to its profundity, which is this: the more immediate and personal one’s knowledge of Christ, the more natural it is to share Him with others. This is why those who have newly met Christ are often so verbal and successful in leading others to Him despite the absence of learned arguments
We know the truth of our desperate need for a Savior because of the wickedness in our own heart. The beautiful grace God bestows upon us must be shared.
If you know Christ, you, like average Andrew, have the essential heart qualification to share him — even if you do not have all the answers. And the key to ongoing effectiveness is a perpetual freshness in your growing knowledge of Him.
The key to ongoing effectiveness is perpetual freshness in your growing knowledge of Him. That is quite a statement. I know when my heart is not renewed with growing knowledge of Him, I feel dead.
