"But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." (Acts, 1:8)
Truly, Jesus is the Savior of the World; however, He will not be able to liberate the Earth from the command of evil without the aid of those who seek salvation.
The Divine Master, therefore, requires auxiliary assistants, qualified as directors and witnesses, everywhere.
The improvement of souls without the education is impracticable, and the education requires legions of cooperators.
However, in order to perform the role of representatives of the Lord, in the sublime task of elevation, the external title achieved in the religious school is not enough. It is indispensable to obtain blessings from on High via the practice of our own duties, no matter how painful or difficult they may be.
Up to the present, we know very well on Earth, the power of dominating, governing, rejecting and injuring, of easy access in the field of life.

Without acquiring these resources, which identify us with the Divine Worker, and without having the opportunity of reflecting this on our fellow man, in spirit and in truth, through our constant efforts of personal application of the Gospel, we can personify excellent preachers, brilliant literary men or notable sympathizers of the Christian Doctrine, but, as His witnesses.
