Mark 5:19 NKJV However, Jesus did not permit him, but said to him, “Go home to your friends, and tell them what great things the Lord has done for you, and how He has had compassion on you.”
A testimony is a solemn statement of fact or truth. It’s telling to others what happened. In other words, it’s sharing your experiences or what you witnessed with others. God wants us to testify about all that He has done for us. Evangelism is really tesifying to others about what God has done for you.
To testify is also to give evidence. That’s interesting. What’s the evidence? Faith! Faith is the substance of things hoped for, and the evidence of things not seen. Understand the difference: people who testify in law courts talk about what they saw, or heard or felt, but we live by faith and not by sight! Our testimonies are not limited to the things that have already happened; well, faith is the evidence! Whether we have seen it or not, we testify once we have the evidence in our hearts (faith!).
You can’t convince me that you have nothing to testify about! There are some people reading this who haven’t testified this year! Come on, don’t be ungrateful, give God the glory! David said, “Many, O Lord my God, are Your wonderful works which You have done; and Your thoughts toward us cannot be recounted to You in order; If I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered.” That’s my story! Hallelujah!
