Gathering in Christ
Then Philip opened his mouth, and beginning at this Scripture, preached Jesus to him.
There is peril in expressing a thing and letting the expression react in the exhaustion of never doing it. Go straight for God if you come from Him. Neither fear nor favor should alter the message. What happened to John the Baptist? He went straight back to God, minus his head. That was the result of his message.
Be a walking, talking, living example of what you preach, in every silent moment of your life, known and unknown. Bear the scrutiny of God until you prove that you are indeed an example of what He can do, and then “make disciples of all nations.”
