Jeremiah 13:11 says, "for as the loincloth clings to the waist of a man, so I made the whole house of Israel and the whole house of Judah to cling to me, declares the Lord, that they might be for me a people, a name, a praise, and a glory, but they would not listen."
God's hope and dream for his people corporately and individually are based upon our "clinging" to Him for our every need. Whatever the need, real or imagined, God has an answer for His clinging people. Even our witness is based upon our clinging to Him.
I am convinced that God's people do not witness with those nearby because they/ we do not have anything significant to share of God's activity. We will only share what moves us. Think about it. People will debate facts, but they can only marvel at your personal experience with God.
As we cling to our Savior in prayer and worship He moves. The non believing audience can only be motivated to seek God because of believers that are clinging to God for His everything in their personal issues. The closer we are to God's activity, the more relevant and powerful is our response to our neighbor in need or Jesus Christ. Even believers need to cheer on the work of God in the lives of fellow believers.
God wants to bless his believing audience.
