It says in v. 7 that “the men who were traveling with him stood speechless, hearing the voice but seeing no one”. How do you think the world around you sees you as a follower of Jesus? Take some time to examine your public witness (in your neighborhood, at work, in your family, on social media). Does your witness draw people in or push them away?
