“Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee.” Mark
Joy comes to my heart when I hear the testimony of someone that has come to know CHRIST as their Savior. Recently I heard the testimony of Louis Zamperini from a Billy Graham video. As I watched my eyes filled with tears, I just couldn't hold them back.
This evening Jacque and I were watching a movie where a drunk lost his family and all he had, and then found his hope in JESUS. When it showed him calling out to GOD, my heart was breaking with the same joy!
A testimony of your transformation does many things but two stand out to me tonight. 1. It speaks of the wonderful forgiveness and grace a person can find in JESUS. Especially to those that have never tasted such grace! 2. It speaks to the heart of those of who have tasted GOD’s grace and reminds them from where the love of GOD has brought them!
While people debate on how we are to win souls, JESUS said, “Go tell them”. No formula, no theological discussions just, “Go tell them”! No class needed, but it doesn't hurt, just, “Go tell them”!
There is but one qualification! You must have a testimony before you can testify. The best solution for this is, get one! Call out to GOD! If you have one and are not using it you are not doing what CHRIST told you to do! “Go tell them”!
There is a joy that fills my heart
When someone comes to JESUS.
Hear the words they speak to Him
They break sins hold to pieces!
To see the change so instantly
Delights the eye that watches.
A frowning face turns to smiles
And begins to sing sonatas!
