THE POWER OF PERSONAL TESTIMONY

One of God’s most effective strategies for winning people to Jesus is the power of personal testimony.

When a witness is called into court, there is no need for a lot of personal preparation to respond to the questions he/she will be asked. All they are required to do is simply tell the judge and jury what they personally saw or heard. Nothing more. Nothing less.

The enemy of the Church has silenced a potential powerful army of witnesses by making them feel inadequate or by causing them to think their story of conversion to Christ is not interesting or dramatic enough. “Who would want to hear that?” they reason. Yet that is precisely what Jesus has called us to tell - OUR STORY of how we met Him and the difference he has made in our lives. And what Jesus has given to us, He wants to give to them.

Today, as you go out into another new day, I challenge you to keep four simple things in mind.

  1. No one is beyond God’s reach. The Bible says, He is able to save to the uttermost, them that come unto God through Him. (Hebrews 7:25) Some have inserted “guttermost” for uttermost. Both, according to scripture, are true. No one is beyond God’s reach.

  2. God wants everyone to be saved! I Timothy 2:4-6 tells us, “God wants everyone to be saved and know the whole truth, which is, ‘There is only one God, and Christ Jesus is the only one who can bring us to God. Jesus was truly human, and he gave himself to rescue all of us. God showed us this at the right time.” Many have themselves convinced they are beyond the reach of a loving God. They have gone too far! They are too dirty! Or too hopeless! Nothing could be further from the truth. Christ died for sinners not saints. (Romans 5:8; I Timothy 1:15)

  3. If you are a believer, you have been commissioned to help make disciples for Jesus Christ (Matt. 28:19). Start telling your story to those who are willing to listen. Don’t underestimate the power of your personal testimony. God wants to use it in ways far beyond what you can dream possible. (Ephesians 3:20-21)

  4. The Holy Spirit has promised to accompany your words and drive home the truth of Jesus. The reality is, no one is drawn to accept Jesus except the Spirit draw them. We must rely on Him. (John 12:32; I Corinthians 2:11, 14)

Years ago a crusty cowboy named Stuart Hamblin came to a saving knowledge of Christ and later penned this song. “It is no secret what God can do. What he’s done for others, he’ll do for you. With arms wide open, He’ll pardon you. It is no secret what God can do.” Be blessed my friend.
