SHARE YOUR TESTIMONY
Testimonies give glory to God. They also encourage others who may be going through something similar. The same God who blessed us is able to bless someone else. I cannot begin to count the many blessings I have received. In the book I wrote, entitled, “It’s Not Where You Start, but Where You Finish that Counts,” it is all about the blessings God has given me. But the blessings have never ended — every day God continues to bless me, in one way or another. I believe that all of God’s people should have a testimony and should share that testimony with someone else. In 1 Corinthians 1:17, we find these words:
For Christ didn’t send me to baptize, but to preach the Good News—and not with clever speech, for fear that the cross of Christ would lose its power.
Paul writes about the power of God. He shares his own personal testimony of how he was chosen by God to be an apostle. His preaching was not to impress others, but so that the power of Christ might be known. Paul knew first-hand about the Lord’s grace and mercy because the Lord had changed his life, and he had never been the same. When you get a chance, read this entire chapter. Prayerfully, each of us will share our testimonies with others, letting them know what the Lord has done for us. In doing so, God will get the glory.
