When Jesus said “You will be My witnesses” (Acts 1:8) He was making a statement, not a request. Each and every believer in Jesus Christ is His witness. How can we be better and more effective witnesses? This overview of LASSIE, a relational and contextual witnessing framework that can be used in everyday life, provides a great starting place for being a more faithful and joy-filled witness of Jesus.
