Do the people around you even know you’re a Christian? ” I’ll let my walk do the talking,” you might be saying to yourself right now. But do you know how many “good” people don’t know Jesus and are going to hell? To paraphrase Jesus in Mark 8:38, If you’re ashamed of Me, I’ll be ashamed of you. Why should we be embarrassed to tell others what Jesus has done in our lives? Our testimony…or our personal story of redemption needs to be something we’re so comfortable telling others about that it flows naturally like breathing. No one can take your testimony from you…it’s totally unique and the supernatural power it has can melt hardened hearts. Someone around you today needs to hear your testimony…it will change their life forever. Be brave and declare Jesus as your Lord and Savior.
The Samaritan woman’s divine appointment with Jesus at the well had so impacted her that she hurried back to tell everyone, “Come, see a man who has told me everything I ever did. Could this be the Christ?” And the scriptures say that many believed because of her testimony. Her testimony…her unique story of how Jesus came into her life and changed it for the better. Her testimony was what drew the people to Jesus, but each then had their own encounter with the Savior…receiving not only eternal life, but their own unique story…their own testimony to share with others.
