Testimony of Faith Challenge
I’ve come across some amazing people in my time. Every one of them have awe-inspiring stories most especially those who gave their lives to Christ.
That said I’ve also met some people who are still ashamed of their past and are shackled to the guilt and memories of their past. Despite experiencing grace and mercy to overcome them, for some reason they stay ashamed and wouldn’t share their testimony of faith.
I can relate to the fear of being labelled by past errors and the fear of high expectations to be righteous and ‘good’.
But I’ve come to realise, not sharing testimony binds me to my past and hinders me from really embracing the possibilities of the future.
I learnt recently that sharing your testimony is the very same thing as evangelizing. All you’re doing is telling people what God has done for you and sharing the experience. In many ways, you’re proof that Jesus is real and given hope to someone who is still in despair.
Many Christians forget that the single most important task of their existence is to share their testimony or evangelise. You could get caught up with needs and wants, hopes and aspirations but if none of those things are drawing people to Christ’s feet so he can unburden and save them then dare I say it’s all vanity.
So here’s the challenge;
If you are not ashamed of what Christ has done for you, Do a video recording of your testimony of faith.
To help you can answer the following questions;
- what was life-like before you became a christian
- why did you become a Christian
- how did you become a Christian
- or how/why did you “back slide” i.e stop living as a Christian and how did you get back on track.
- at the tail end of the video, please declare that “Jesus is Lord and his power is here and real in my life!”
It’s important to say here that simply put, a Christian is someone who has made a conscious decision to accept Christ as their everything and has chosen to live according to His will.
After recording the video email it to Msluffa@gmail.com and I’ll post it on YouTube where your story can touch the lives of others. Call it 21st century evangelism if you like.
Once it’s uploaded I’ll send you a link so you can view ad share as you please. I’d also advise you to subscribe to the channel so you be touched by the testimonies of others.
For those who don’t like to do something for nothing, well your reward for doing this is knowing you’ve obeyed Jesus instruction to spread the good news that he’s alive and he saves.
Here’s a link to the YouTube channel, view, subscribe and submit your video. http://t.co/MAOB13cy
