Witnesses for the Lord Jesus have a Spiritual Role that unconverted Christians cannot do.

The Lord Jesus came to save and to live with Lost Souls
John 14:23 Jesus replied, ‘Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. 24 Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.’
The Life of a True Disciple
His disciples, those who love and obey Him, are commanded to be like salt and light that the Lost Souls can see Jesus in us through the Holy Spirit.
Matthew 5:13 ‘You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.
14 ‘You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.’
Salt and light are metaphors used by Jesus in the Sermon on the Mount, one of the main teachings of Jesus on morality and discipleship. These metaphors in Matthew 5:13, 14, 15 and 16 immediately follow the Beatitudes and refer to expectations from the disciples. Wherever I go, my Lord Jesus and his Father go with me through the Holy Spirit. I meet people from many different backgrounds, Cultures and Nationalities and Religious Beliefs.
I am a witness to the truth about God! I am not a Christian Leader of a Denominational Church. It is not for me to tell Christians what to do. Though I certainly give advice for their own good and the good of others.
My relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ causes people problems, as will yours if you become as described in John 14:23.
