Telling It Like It Is

 Matthew 10:32-33

Life often demands proof. Sometimes it seems that no matter what we say, people simply will not believe us unless we can provide some definite verification. That can be a good thing when what you're sharing is the most important news in the world-and you have the evidence to back it up.

The news I'm talking about is the saving gospel of Jesus Christ. And the proof is your own personal testimony.

Every single believer has an irrefutable account of how Christ saved him or her from sin. It is disheartening when people downplay their faith story as boring or "ordinary." How could this story ever be ordinary? It isn't just some narrative about how you spent your day; we're talking about a supernatural event. This is the chronicle of how Almighty God entered your heart. News like that is far from boring.

Remember that no one can discount your testimony. It's your own story-the truthful telling of how God has worked in your life. A testimony is similar to a fingerprint: no two are the same. And regardless of the details, no one can ever deny your own personal experience. Even if some people do not believe in the power of Christ, they cannot refute what He has done in your life.

Boldly giving your testimony can be a challenge, especially if you're not sure how your audience will react. At such moments, however, know that your story will be something they've never heard before. God gave you a special gift in your unique testimony. Are you sharing that gift with others?
