Bearing Our Witness

Based in part on Acts 7:55-56:

Bearing Our Witness
by Michael Romani

Here we are to give our witness
Showing in our walk out bit of fitness
All in all given in strength and humility
Testifying in life as part of God's family

Prayerfully examining the steps of our walk
To determine that each comports to our talk
For we never know who will be there to see
But be assured that all might learn of divinity

Each breath we take should be one of integrity
Earnestly showing our best in all our honesty
To look straight in the mirror and like that face
Knowing that a Christian life is what we embrace

In doing this, we learn to walk a road less traveled
As so much of the world around us come unraveled
Being unafraid to go outside our comfort zone
Following wherever we are led under the throne

Would you be willing to endure the ultimate price
Giving your life in willing and dutiful sacrifice
Amazingly filled with the grace of our forgiveness
This then is the deepest and truest form of witness

As with the Apostle Steven we might be able to show
The willingness of spirit and the assurance that we will grow
Broken sinners who know our fullest sense of place
And willingly take our Lord's yoke in His loving embrace
