Testimonies

We often teach about the importance of sharing testimonies of what Jesus has done in someone’s life because I believe that it is incredibly important for everyone to know that God is still working in the earth today. Testimonies highlight the goodness of Jesus. But they also highlight the power and authority he has to heal any sickness, remove any problem, and reverse any situation. When we share these stories, Jesus receives more glory and the faith of others tends to rise which results in even more miraculous activity. Who wouldn’t want to hear stories about miraculous events? Sometimes these testimonies are shared from a stage and sometimes they are shared in a more natural way during regular conversations. We were in our usual spot in Southeast D.C. this past week, and I was talking to a young man named Jerome who I had prayed for a week earlier because he had an injury to his legs that hadn’t completely healed. After one simple prayer last week, he started to run circles through a parking lot in celebration of what God had done while many other people stood watching, and wondering what had happened. While I was getting an update from him this week, another man walked up who we had also previously prayed for and he reported that his back was completely healed. It was fun to watch as the few people standing by began to celebrate what God had done. There’s something about the miraculous that attracts people and we are finding that the more time we spend in this same location, the more stories we hear about God supernaturally working in people’s lives. These stories are spreading through a parking lot and into a community where, one day, we hope that God will do what we see in Acts 9 where all the residents of Lydda and Sharon turned to the Lord because of the miracle Jesus performed through Peter. I encourage you to take some time this week to share what God is doing in you and through you with others, especially those who don’t follow Jesus. It just might be the story that convinces them to believe in Jesus the same way you do.
