“There was a man named John who was sent from God. He came as a witness to testify about the light, so that all might believe through Him” (John 1:6-7)
Moses was a witness to the power, majesty, and grace of God, and he recorded that for us in the Torah. The prophets were all witnesses to the word and workings of God and recorded that for us. John the Baptist came, sent from God, to serve as a witness to testify about the light of God in Christ. When ordered not to continue teaching and preaching in the name of Jesus, Peter said, “We cannot help but preach what we have seen and heard.” Paul, when arrested in the temple spoke to the crowd and gave his testimony of how he met Jesus on the Damascus Road and how the Lord changed his life. John, writing one of his brief letters, gave his testimony of what he had seen, had touched, and had heard concerning the word of life that was revealed in Jesus. The only reason that someone can write these words today is because someone has been faithful through the centuries to share a testimony with others about what they have experienced in coming to faith in Jesus Christ.
If the gospel is going to continue into the future until Christ returns, it will be because people of faith commitment bear witness to their experience with Him and share with the world how He has changed their lives.
People may argue with the Scriptures and may challenge your testimony, but they can never neutralize your experience with the Lord. Your testimony is the one thing you can share with others that may make a difference in whether they make a faith decision to commit their lives to Jesus. So, share it.
Lord, We thank You for those who shared their testimonies with us. Help us to pass it on and share our testimony with others. Amen.
