God gives us our role
The following night the Lord stood by him and said, “Take courage. For just as you have borne witness to my cause in Jerusalem, so you must also bear witness in Rome.”
I made known to them your name and I will make it known, that the love with which you loved me
may be in them and I in them.
Get ready. The Holy Spirit is coming. The fullness of God is being revealed. And for the sake of our own salvation, and that of others, the Holy Spirit sends us forward to proclaim the Good News. Sharing our faith is no longer one option among many. It is the only option.
