As followers of Jesus, we know we are to be His witnesses in the world, but many believers are hesitant or experience a shut-down of power in attempting to be effective in sharing the gospel. Paul gives some hints regarding what can make our testimony more effective to a watching world. Conducting ourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel will make a listener more open to hearing what we have to say. Our attitude and heart can make sharing the good news more winsome and attractive to those we desire to reach.
Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ. Then, whether I come and see you or only hear about you in my absence, I will know that you stand firm in the one Spirit, striving together as one for the faith of the gospelPhilippians 1:27
