“To all this is added the mysterious power of a secret. Christian experience is always a secret, but compels attention.
The speaker of the gospel message, through the effort to express his truth exercises a profound effect on himself. The expression of his experience intensifies the message; renews it; repeats it in himself; and enlightens the message. In speaking of the gospel, he goes through it again for himself. In setting it before others, he sets it before himself in a new light. He gets a deeper sense of its reality and power and meaning. In speaking of the gospel, he pledges himself to the conduct and life which it requires. He proclaims himself bound by it, and every time that his message produces an effect upon someone else, that effect reacts upon himself, making his hold upon his truth surer and stronger.”
What message are you repeating to others and becoming more convinced of yourself?
