Day 19

"The word 'missionary' does not occur in the Bible. But the word 'witness' does . . . . [T]o be a witness to God is, above all, to know, believe, and understand Him. All that He asks us to do is but means to this end. He will go to any lengths to teach us, and His manipulation of the movements of men . . . is never accidental. Those movements may be incidental to the one thing toward which He goads us: the recognition of Christ."
--Elisabeth Elliot, The Savage My Kinsman

"'You are My witnesses,' says the LORD,
'And My servant whom I have chosen,
That you may know and believe Me,
And understand that I am He.
Before Me there was no God formed,
Nor shall there be after Me.'"
Isaiah 43:10
