W itnessing effectively is essential when you are a part of the body of Christ;
A lways assume you are being watched: be keenly aware of everything you do.
T ell others about Jesus, teaching them the Truth found only in His Word.
C ensure your attitude when it becomes unyielding and unfruitful;
H elp others see the Spirit of Christ in you by how you act and react.

Y ield yourself to God every day even when you don’t feel like doing it;
O bey human authority: doing good silences the foolish people around you.
U nbelief has no part in the body of Christ, so walk by faith, not by sight:
R espond by faith with action just like the disciples did in the book of Acts.

L ook into the eyes of the person you are witnessing to: have compassion.
A nxious souls may cross their arms across their chest: be patient.
N ever be afraid to smile and let your light shine: give them a faith lift.
G ive up slouching—sit up and pay attention—it pays off in the long run.
U se what you have learned to reach out and touch other’s lives in love:
A ffect the world around you positively for the kingdom of God;
G uard your heart and mind from sinful, evil thoughts and actions.
E ndure with enthusiasm to the end: finish the race with and for Him!

Very creative approach.

I like how you reinforced every line with a scripture. Quite creative.

This was just what I needed to hear this morning. It could have been written especially for me.

Good use of an acronym. We can hurt or help our witness as much by what we do - "WATCH YOUR [BODY] LANGUAGE" - as by what we say with our lips.
