A WORTHY WITNESS
I Corinthians
2:1-5
There is little room for doubt that the little
Jewish man we refer to as the Apostle Paul was the
greatest Christian witness of them all. His passion
for souls drove him through beatings, shipwreck, po-
verty, hunger, stonings, imprisonments, and finally
execution. Situations that would have discouraged
others seemed to whip up the fire of love in Paul's
heart. He and Silas were in stocks in the dungeon

they started a revival in a jail by singing praises

city and is one who speaks a message of urgency.
A worthy witness is motivated by love.
Love is a necessity of any who would be a worthy
witness. Why would Paul come to a sin-hole like Corinth
to share the news of Chris ...
