The people of the church blend in with the world so much so, that we have no idea who is a believer and who is not.

The entire world deserves to know who He is. If He has ever done anything for you, don't keep it to yourself. Testify, share it with someone. Your testimony may encourage someone to seek more of Him. So be bold, unashamed and unafraid of what the would is going to think. They need Him more than they know.
