The witness of obscure but Spirit-led lives

I was challenged and encouraged by this word from F.B. Meyer:

The voice of the Church has testified to the living Christ, not arguing but attesting; and to each word of testimony the Holy Spirit has borne assenting witness. Christian apologetics are of less importance than the witness of obscure but Spiritled lives.

 F. B. Meyer, Through the Bible Day by Day: A Devotional Commentary, vol. 5 (Philadelphia: American Sunday-School Union, 1914–1918), 217–218.

Apologetics can be used as a wonderful tool, but a Spirit-led life still speaks a stronger word.
