JESUS SAYS not to worry about what to say or how to say it or when it will happen. When we need to witness to him, we trust the Spirit to help us find our way. (See Mark 13:11.) Our disciplines of paying attention to God’s working in our lives and the lives of others gives content to our testimonies.
