Telling Our Testament

There is always enormous joy and rejoicing, whenever people talk of God’s greatness. For who can remain still, or quiet when there is good news to share? Come and hear, says the psalmist, and I will tell what God has done for me.

Proclaiming what God has done for us, is what demonstrates His love and grace. Our witness and our words, convince others that God is real, alive – that He can instill hope even in the hopeless. All the proof we need is in our own lives. Consider all we have seen. Our experiences through the years, through the tears, and through the trials confirm our belief in Him. We are here today, because God alone has protected and sustained us, not because of anything we have done for ourselves.

Everywhere we look we can see our past in the people we encounter. We, too, wandered from day to day, without much purpose, until someone told us the good news of God. Now that we know Him, we need to tell others what He has done. They need to know, that knowing Him, can make a difference in their lives as well.

Our testimony, can be the testament, that just one person needs to accept Him

Our testimony is someone else's hope. It is the very essence of ministry. Without one, how can we minister. Otherwise, all we would do is preach.

I often say, "Don't preach to me from your soapbox, minister to me from your pain."

Love you my sister. So glad you want to sit next to me at the Royal Banquet. What a privilege. Can't wait.

Amen. Great reminder of what we are commanded to do by the Lord. To share His gift of salvation with others in all nations. Blessings to you sister.

Our Pastor preached on this a bit this morning. But, he had a new take. He took us to the greek word for testimony, which I can't remember how to spell, but we get our word "martyr" from it. He said the testimony we most need to share is God's own story. We don't need to focus on emotions and all, although that can be very good, but we need to focus on God's Word, God's works, God's will. I was so encouraged by his preaching!

Your live is a living testimony in this very manner.
Blessings dear friend!

Amen..."All the proof we need is in our own lives."...how can we keep silent...where would we be if someone else had not spoken their witness....
