The first and foremost responsibility of any pastor is to be a witness.
Paul’s example of being a witness is using his story to make the story of Christ, the gospel, important. When churches foster a community of witnessing they become living libraries of God’s Word. The world is in desperate need to hear and see the witness of transformation that Jesus does in the church.
