The Power Of YOUR Testimony

Your story can have a powerful impact on someone else’s life, even if it’s just a little part of that story!

 

Just look at the Bible, it’s a storybook. It’s not a book of lectures, outlines and sermons. It’s simply a storybook filled with

the most powerful stories you will ever read or hear.

 

So, it’s no wonder that God wants us to share our stories of His work in our lives. First John chapter one shares it this

way: “And now we testify and announce to you that he (Jesus) is the one who is eternal life.

He was with the Father, and then he was shown to us.

 

We are telling you about what we ourselves have actually seen and heard, so that you may have fellowship with us, and our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ.” (1 John 1:2-3)

 

The Apostle John who walked with Jesus was now sharing that story with his readers. He was testifying, announcing the

 Good News of Jesus to those who would listen.

Did you catch the word - testify? The Bible uses another word for sharing our story; it’s called testimony or witness.

When we share the story of God’s work in our life we are sharing our testimony.

 

That’s exactly what God expects from each of us as His followers – to simply share the Good News, to share the story

of how that Good News has changed us! He wants us to share our testimony. He wants us to be witnesses to what we have seen Him do in our lives.

 

Sharing that kind of story is powerful and life changing! Think about it, I would venture to say someone shared their story with you and it brought you to a faith and confidence in Jesus!

 

You don’t have to be a graduate theologian to share the Good News. You only have to be willing to share the story of

what God did in your life.

 

During His time on earth that’s exactly what happened. Jesus would work in someone’s life and they would simply

share that story with others.

 

When Jesus healed the blind man, the blind man said: I know this: “I was blind, and now I can see!” (John 9:25)

When Jesus forgave the Samaritan woman she “told everyone, Come and meet a man who told me everything I ever did!

Can this be the Messiah?” (John 4:29) The people of her village later told her, “Now we believe because we have heard him ourselves, (John 4:42)

 

These were simply common people telling an extraordinary story of Jesus working in their lives. That’s why Jesus told His disciples “you must also tell others about me” (John 15:27).

 

So, send us your testimony and lets glorify God, witness about His power, inspire others and traumatize the devil!

Please be aware that we reserve the right to use all or part of your testimony.
