Revelation 12:11 (NLT) “And they have defeated him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of their testimony. And they were not afraid to die”
The Bible says that in the end, the devil is defeated by the blood of Jesus and our testimony. Is that a wild thought? Our Testimony is obviously a powerful weapon! So since it is a weapon, we ought to be able to use it pretty well right?
Telling someone about what God has done in your life should be the most natural conversation in the world, but some of us would rather take a drivers test than try to talk about their faith with someone they don’t know.
The other day I sat in my office and chatted for more than 30 minutes with a friend who is on a new diet and has lost over 40 pounds. She was thrilled to share how she was doing it and I was thrilled to listen! LOL! We’ll share our diets, we’ll share our hobbies, our favorite TV shows, just about anything… but we stumble when it comes to sharing our testimony. Yikes!
There is a fantastic resource on the web that will help you to write out your testimony clearly and simply. It’s 5Clicks.com and you can do it completely online and then print it out. Go check it out today!
Father God, please help me to be more comfortable in sharing my story of faith with other people. Make me brave and make me willing! Give me the right words at the right time. In Jesus’ Name, Amen!
