Your Testimony is Powerful!

WHAT A POWERFUL THING A TESTIMONY IS!  It encourages, challenges and builds the faith of fellow Christians!

I remember my Sunday school teacher as a teenager, Marg McCready, standing in response to the invitation “does anyone have a testimony” in our little church in Western Montana.  She’d begin fairly composed as she began to recount the goodness of the Lord in her life, but before she was finished telling the story of God’s grace in her life or a recent event in which God had helped her, she was in tears (and nearly everyone else was in tears as well)!  Some testimonies are memorable!  Hers was – and PERHAPS YOUR STORY OF GOD’S GRACE IN YOUR LIFE WILL BE JUST WHAT SOMEONE NEEDS TO HEAR.  YOU (AND I) NEED TO SHARE THOSE STORIES WITH OTHERS!

Thought of Marg this morning as I read Psalm 66.16-20…

“Come and hear, all you who fear God; let me tell you what he has done for me.  I cried out to him with my mouth; his praise was on my tongue. If I had cherished sin in my heart, the Lord would not have listened; but God has surely listened and has heard my prayer.  Praise be to God, who has not rejected my prayer or withheld his love from me!”
