2. Hut witnesses, mut haic great power be
foie they can accomplish this lcsult. So Christ
fa, and He tells tis what Is the tecret a.s well
as the souice of this power: Ve fhall rcceiw
power after that Ihe Holy (ihc-t is come upon
jou," Hence it appear that nieir comcroion Is
not enough to in ike line an efficient witness for
Chiist. 'Ihe apostles were converted when C'liri-t
told them that they neded power, and tint they
lould not be Ills witnessed until they leeched
A meie profession "of faith in Cluint is not
enough to make, one a strong witness for ChrNt.
A wlutes.s that will stand the test befoie the
woild's jury and under the seere cioss-ovimin-ntion,
must lue some Mionger power to lean
upon than a meie piofcssion of his faith. In Ihe
tiial c.f a cause, the character of Hie wltne-u is
not always fully exemplified in ids direct-examination.
It is the cross-examination tint tests
his character and his truthfulness. And It is cen
so with Chust's witne-v.es. S-oinp of thin cJu
not stand the test of men a mild, much less of
a rigid cross-examination. Their manner of life
contradicts their profession. They profess that
they know find, but In woiks they deny Iliin
Titus I: 10). At times all looks fair. (In the
Sabbath, and at tho Lord's table they act like
C'liUttiaiis. Hut at home, in business. In ton
xersation, in conduct, In fidelity to their tens
ions obligations on 'hese points nuiny wit-nc.-cs
will break down under cross.-examinatlon.
Hence it is well to eniphas're the fact that a
mere formal piofcs.ion of fillli in Jesus Christ
Is not enough to make one an cilkient uilm-9
for Chii-t. Wc need a power above and lie and
that. Wc need the power which CluM's apos
tles needed, namely, the powci of the Holy
Peter owed allegiance to ClirUI, and declared
that lie would die rather than deny Illm. Hut
lie did deny Him and forsook Him. Hut look at
Peter after lie had leccbed the Holy (ihost! Fee
Illm on the day of l'cnteeo-,t ! Theie lie was n
lo.Mil and tiue witness, and it would be easier
to" move a mountain from Us base, than to in
duce lilni to deny his I.oid and Master. So .lani'.s
and .John xowed allegiance to Christ, but how
Inconsistent tliej; were, and how destitute of
Christ's spiilt when they wanted to call down fire
fiom heaien to destroy tho Samaritans. They
did not fully realize until the.v lcciived the Holy
(ihost tint .lesiia came not to de-tioj men's lie-,
but to nc them.
Tin: rowuu Ni:i:i)Ui).
And lids Is the power that the CI11i3tl.u1 iliuiili,
as .1 whole, needs today, linked. 1I1S is the
power that each Christian petti,,, in older tu nuke
Illm an cftutle Clnistljii witne. This U the
power that will liicuk down the scepticism, ami
the indllteiei.ee, and tlio ease in Ziou with which
the ihvie.li of I'luM is affiliated.
