I ran into one of my childhood friends Sunday night, and needless to say, it was an exciting experience. As we talked about old times, somehow (divine intervention, of course) the conversation shifted to my faith. He asked me how I ended up in the ministry. I couldn’t share all of my testimony (GOD has been too good), but I did give him a snippet. He was so intrigued that he gave me his contact information so we could finish the conversation later.
After talking to my friend, I realized that people are desperate for hope. The economy is fickle, jobs are unstable, and people are searching for incentives to press on. They want a reason to keep a smile on their face; they want to believe everything will be OK. Maybe that’s why Peter encouraged us to always be ready to explain our Christian hope. People are ready to throw in the towel, and our testimony can help them grab their situations by the horns.
Long story short, we should be tattle-tells for JESUS. Your testimony can help someone make it through a seemingly insurmountable circumstance.
Has the LORD redeemed you? Then speak out! Tell others HE has redeemed you from your enemies (Psalm 107:2, New Living Translation).
