Read Romans 4:1-4; 15-17. Whilst we are saved by God through faith alone, we also know we need spiritual exercise too. There are things we can do to help strengthen our faith. We are looking at four of them during this week. We’ve already looked at the first two.
The third is to write out your testimony so you are ready to share it. No one else can tell your story but you. Some of the most powerful testimonies come from people who have been through demanding situations in their lives. When they share their stories with others, we quickly see that everyone has their own struggles, but these struggles are what makes us stronger as individuals and as a church.
When you’re asked about your Christian testimony, you should be prepared to share what God has done for you and how Jesus has changed your life. Don’t let an opportunity pass by because of fear or shyness! The Bible tells us that our hope is found only in Jesus Christ–and this means we must be able to explain why we believe what we believe.
Writing your testimony down can strengthen your faith and help you share it more easily with others and make sure that it doesn’t get lost when people ask about your faith journey.
It’s time that you started sharing your story. Just like nobody else can study for you, nobody else can tell your story like you can.
