Your Testimony

I tell you the truth, we speak of what we know, and we testify to what we have seen, but still you people do not accept our testimony (John 3:11).

Over the last several years I have seen two distinct types of Christian business people. One type enthusiastically teaches their Bible knowledge to others. This person, though he may be genuine in his motive, lacks one essential ingredient to being effectively used by God — a testimony. The second type of person I have encountered has a genuine testimony of what God is doing and continues to do in his life. This was the case in the early church. Men and women were able to give powerful testimony of events and experiences that could only be explained as a work of God.

God desires to build a testimony in each of us. Each of us is one of God’s chosen vessels to reflect His power in and through us. When others see this power reflected, they are impacted because they cannot explain that power. God desires to frame your life with experiences designed to reflect the character and nature of Christ. Sometimes these events can be very devastating. These events are designed to reveal His power in and through us.

Every one of us has a testimony. What would others say your testimony is today? Can others see the work of God in your life? Is your testimony one of only Bible knowledge? Are there things happening in your life that can only be explained as God? These can be problematic questions for each of us. Ask God to build a testimony of His life in and through you today.
