Since we dwell in God, and He in us by His Holy Spirit, we may be much bold to testify the Gospel of the grace of God.  Coming to Christ gives to us a spiritual knowledge which no unbeliever, be he never so thoroughly trained in theological argumentation, can possess.  The unbeliever can learn and recite spiritual facts, but he can never say with personal conviction that Jesus is Lord.  He may learn that the Bible teaches that Jesus was sent by the Father to be the Saviour of the world, but he has not seen it with spiritual eyes, and therefore cannot testify of it to any good effect.  This is why it is incumbent upon the people of God to proclaim the grand truth of redemption throughout the world, because there is no other agency by which it may be done.  Christ’s church is the pillar and ground of the truth, and if we do not communicate the truth to our fellow mortals, then they can never learn it.  And if they never hear and learn the truth, they can never be saved; for faith comes only by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
