You Will Be My Witnesses . . . to the Ends of the Earth. Acts 1:8
Martus = Credible Witness
In Acts 1:8, the Greek word “martus” is translated as “witness.” “Martus” is also the English root word for “martyr”. Living in restricted nations, our international leaders are “living martyrs” because their faithful and bold witness for Christ puts both their lives and their freedoms at risk. Likewise, our international family inspires us as fellow believers to lay down our lives in full surrender and obedience to God . . . with the same Spirit of Martyrdom.
