"By the Word of Their Testimony"

One assignment that our team has been given was to put their testimony into five sentences and come ready to share it at our team meeting. Have you tried it? It is easier said than done! The Word tells us, "And they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony" Revelation 12:11. We are each called to share what Jesus has done for us. He also tells us to go and make disciples--so we should be ready at all times.

I had the privilege of hearing a speaker at our church recently and hearing him at both of our services. At the first service he shared his testimony in full length for the whole service. At service number two, he shared it in about 20 seconds...and it was just as powerful! I walked away from that experience to be prepared at any moment and to share the redemption that Jesus has done in my life! Even if I have 20 seconds to share with someone, Jesus can use it! To God be the Glory for what He has done and is doing. May I shout it from the rooftops!

As our Scotland team prepares their hearts and gets out of their comfort zones, we encourage you to join us! Pray for us as the Lord stirs this up in us! Join us in writing out and practice putting what God has done in your life into five sentences--and then share it! Be bold, be authentic, be the hands and feet of Jesus. Who do you know that needs to meet the One that came to set the captive free? For He is the One that conquered all.
