Ready to Speak

And Paul said, "I would to God that not only you, but also all who hear me today, might become both almost and altogether such as I am, except for these chains."
(Acts 26:29)

The American pop artist Andy Warhol wrote in 1968, "In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes." From that statement came the now famous reference to "15 minutes of fame" -- a moment when someone finds himself in the spotlight.
 
What would we do or say if we suddenly found ourselves with a captive audience? That is, if you had one thing you could tell the world, what would it be?
 
The spotlight can cause some people to lose their nerve and freeze -- but not the apostle Paul. On the several occasions he found himself standing before authorities with a captive audience, he never failed to declare the Gospel of Jesus Christ and encourage those listening to believe in Him (Acts 21:27-22:21; 23:1-11; 24:10-21; 26:1-29; 28:17-31).
 
The same thing will happen in the coming Tribulation when, because of modern technology, the whole world will hear the testimony of God's two faithful witnesses (Revelation 11:1-13).

Regardless of the size and place of the opportunities God gives you, be prepared to speak of the hope that lies in you (1 Peter
3:15).

Every believer is a witness whether he wants to be or not.
