A Christian testimony is a simple story of how your life was and is being changed through the power of God. Many people have the misconception that it is a once in a lifetime type of thing but our stories should be evolving with new and exciting things. If God is working in and through you, you will have some amazing testimonies to share. What About Blue is the story of how Enduring Freedom Ministries was born.
God tends to use these life stories in two ways. First of all, by sharing how God is working in your life, you can inspire others to draw closer to the Lord.
God also uses the act of preparing your Christian testimony to help you to reflect on what He has done for you. God usually uses it to point you to areas of your life that you need to work on.
Many times we find that we are carrying burdens from the past that God wants us to lay at the feet of Jesus. This is a valuable tool that God places on the table to assist you in growing in your faith.
Most people are intimidated by the thought of giving a testimony. We are told, in the Bible, to be prepared to give an answer as to the reason for our hope. We are also given examples of how it is done. One of those examples is in the book of John chapter 9. This is a story of a man that was born blind. Jesus healed him on the Sabbath and the Pharisees investigated the "crime".
We see that the blind man gave them a simple answer. He didn't get into an argument over religious doctrine. He merely gave them a three part answer.
Those three parts are: (1) how he was (2) how he is (3) how he was changed. He simply stated that he was born blind, Jesus healed him, and now he could see.
**NOTE** If you cannot look back and see a point where you were changed, you should examine yourself to see if you have truly met Jesus.
That is what we are also called to be prepared to do. The easiest way to be prepared to do it is to write it down. It also is helpful to remind us to be thankful for what Jesus has done for us.
Start with prayer and just write down the three parts. Then continue in prayer and refine it and rehearse sharing it. That is what being prepared is all about.
Finally, look for opportunities to share it because it gets easier and easier.
