Word for Today:Tell us your Testimony.
Ministry of the Word : True Spirituality
Improving Our Spiritual Understanding
“When the LORD turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream.
Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing: then said they among the heathen, The LORD hath done great things for them. The LORD hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad. Turn again our captivity, O LORD, as the streams in the south” (Psalm 126:1-4).
A genuine encounter with the Living God in Christ Jesus should produce a testimony.
When the enemies have held you captive, and you think there is no way of escape, and suddenly, you make contact with the true SOURCE of life, and He sets you completely free, it is like a dream. The Psalmist tells us this much in our memory verses.
If God in Christ has done something marvelous for you, please go out and tell others. Go out and testify, so that He will do more for you. We want to hear your testimony. Do not be ashamed of testifying. Do not be ashamed of the gospel. Like the man born blind from birth went out to testify. While they were debating whether Jesus was a sinner or not, the man born blind from birth whose eyes were opened by the Lord testified: “Whether he be a sinner or no, I know not: one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see” (John 9:25). Yes, now I can see!
The testimony of the Samaritan woman at the well, did not just convert a few people ,but entire community. She testified: “Come, see a man who told me everything I ever did (John 4:29). The Bible says: “And many of the Samaritans of that city believed on him for the saying of the woman, which testified, He told me all that ever I did” (John 4:39).
When Peter had an encounter with Jesus, he realized he was a sinner and did not deserve such unimaginable breakthrough : “When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus knees, saying, Depart from me; for I am a sinful man, O Lord” (Luke 5:8).
The lame man healed by the Lord through Peter, at Temple gate, called Beautiful testified by: “walking, and leaping, and praising God” (Acts 3:8).
Saul, (now St Paul), following that epoch-making encounter with the Jesus, surrendered all, trembling and astonished, said: “Lord, what wilt thou have me to do?”(Acts 9:6).
When God decided to deal with an initially proud idol worshiping king, he surrendered and quickly acknowledged the living God. Listen to his testimony: “And at the end of the days I Nebuchadnezzar lifted up mine eyes unto heaven, and mine understanding returned unto me, and I blessed the most High, and I praised and honoured him that liveth for ever, whose dominion is an everlasting dominion, and his kingdom is from generation to generation” (Daniel 4:34-35).
Following the miraculous crossing of the red sea, Moses was moved to create a new song: “Who is like unto thee, O Lord, among the gods?
who is like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?” (Exodus 15:11)
Following Hannah’s divine encounter, she was moved to compose a new song: ‘There is none holy as the Lord:for there is none beside thee:neither is there any rock like our God’ (1Samuel 2:2)
The entire Bible is full of testimonies!
So what is your testimony? What is your song? What can you tell others about the new life or change Jesus Chrpist has brought to your life? Brethren, has Jesus done something for you? Has He healed you of that illness or afflictions which doctors could not like the woman with the issue of blood(Matt 9:20-22); Has he blessed you with wealth; has He blessed you with wisdom, then please, go out and testify, and He will do more for you.
Please, tell us what Jesus Christ has done for you.
“For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy”(Rev 19:10).
To grow spiritually requires daily meditation with the word of God (Joshua 1:8) and seeking first the kingdom of God and its righteousness (Matthew 6:33). It also requires total fear of God, and spiritual training in the word of God: “Train yourself to be godly”(1Tim 4:7-8 NIV).
There is someone reading this message , before the end of this month ,may you have something to tell others about the goodness of the Word of God in your life, in Jesus Mighty name. Amen!
