Every day, we need to go to our quiet place...

A Quiet Place

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

May 21, A.D. 2001

Acts 16:11-15
Psalms 149:1-6,9
John 15:26--16:4

A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

"You must bear witness as well. . ."

Jesus tells us that the Holy Spirit will bear witness to Him. The Holy Spirit will convict souls and will point them in the direction of the loving Father. The Holy Spirit is the important internal witness.

But Jesus knows people well enough to know that this is insufficient for most. They must also have the witness of others, other people who can talk to them and convince them.

So it is today. The Holy Spirit still bears witness, but He counts on us to bear witness as well. We need to let everyone around us know the splendor and the glory of Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit may be convicting, but if we aren't there to help, the poor convicted soul will have no idea what to do. We are God's hands and feet. We are Jesus' heart to the world. We must bear witness--in our lives, in our words, and in our bearing.
