Writing your testimony should be the number one thing you do and is probably the most importation things you can do as a Christian. It gives praise to God and acknowledges your growing faith and belief in Jesus Christ.
How many times have you been inspired by something you read or heard? There are many people dealing with emotional and physical issues that need some inspiration of their own. Writing your testimony can help them to understand that the strength of your faith and belief in Jesus Christ has made your life much better.
As Christians, it is our scriptural duty to let everyone know how Jesus has changed our life through our testimony. You might be thinking, “Who is it going to help?” The answer is; if it helps many great; but if it help just one that is a miracle!
And, isn’t that what your testimony is about…miracles, faith and belief?
What is a Testimony?
For those reading and don’t know what a Testimony is, here are the dictionary versions:
A. An open acknowledgement
B. First hand authentication of the facts
C. A public recounting of a religious conversion or experience.
What you have experienced through the Holy Spirit or Jesus Christ is a story that should be told through your own personal testimony. Below you will find some tips and ideas to help you through writing your own testimony, and it is much easier than you think. Keep reading.
Writing Your Testimony?
Testimonies are not only stories of God’s glorious deeds, but they are also the way we now live with our new identity in Jesus Christ through our actions and the choices we make everyday.
This is the time to mention how God has changed your life and how following Jesus Christ is making your life much better. Writing your testimony encourage others in their faith, and that is why it is God’s will for Christians to share their testimony, even if they are new believers.
Daniel 4:2 “It is my pleasure to tell you about the miraculous signs and wonders that the Most High God has performed for me.”
Your experiences can help others facing the same obstacles, and inspire others who seek to discover the God that completely changed you. Every time we tell our testimony, we give honor and glory to God. No matter how “spectacular” or “ordinary”, you think it is; it is ultimately about God’s character. It is your account of how God rescued you and changed your life as a result.
Don’t be afraid to fully explain the tough/bad details when writing your testimony; because there are others going through the same thing. And your testimony may lead others to a relationship with God. Of course, that is the reason we write testimonies. To help others find God and Jesus in their lives.
Psalm 66:16 “Come and hear, all you who fear God; let me tell you what he has done for me.”
Some Bible Verses For Inspiration:
Matthew 10:32 “Whoever acknowledges me before others, I will also acknowledge before my Father in heaven.”
2 Timothy 1:8 “So do not be ashamed of the testimony about our LORD or of me his prisoner. Rather, join with me in suffering for the gospel, by the power of God.”
Revelation 12:11 “They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death.”
Study Other Testimonies.
Read the testimony of Apostle Paul in Acts 26 where he describes in detail his miraculous encounter with Jesus and his calling to serve Christ as an apostle. You can also read the testimonies of others, and they might give you some ideas and motivation to write yours. The Bible is full of the testimony of many others. Spend time in preparation and prayer before you start writing and you will be guided by the Holy Spirit.
Pray and ask God to help you share what He wants you to write. It will probably be easier than you think, because you will always have the Holy Spirit guiding you along the way.
