We all have a story to tell. No one can refute your story; your personal journey. This is what is known as your testimony.

Paul had a testimony – see Acts 26:4-23. Short, precise, truthful and impacting. He was able to relay it to King Agrippa as part of his defense when he was being condemned for his ‘religious views’.

He established his pre-Christ days, his encounter with Christ, his calling, and then what happened from there.

Can you verbalise your life as a Christian in such a short and precise way? I know I was encouraged to write out my story. And I did. And it was to be truthful so as to bear up to scrutiny, remembering that:

Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account. Heb 4:13

But we must remember that even though it is a good exercise to write out your story, your testimony, the end is ever changing to the day we pass into eternity.

So, should we do this daily, weekly, monthly, yearly? We do want to keep it up-to-date, right?

Well here is the real good news for you. When your testimony will really matter, be reminded of Jesus’ words when he spoke to the disciples:

“… And so you will bear testimony to me. But make up your mind not to worry beforehand how you will defend yourselves. For I will give you words and wisdom that none of your adversaries will be able to resist or contradict. Luke 21:13-15

I am always ready to give my account, my testimony, my history. Because when it is all boiled down, it simply becomes His Story.

Prayer: Thank you Lord for the life You have granted me. Give me opportunity to share Your Story and how it is entwined in my life. In Jesus’ Name I ask it. Amen.

What is your story?
