TESTIMONIES

Jesus Did It!

By: Norm Rasmussen

FACT:  If you are a born again Christian, God can’t use your born again testimony unless you make it available for Him to use, now can He?

If you haven’t done so yet, may we STRONGLY encourage you to begin writing out your born again salvation testimony for God to use?   We here at Precious Testimonies would be greatly blessed to publish your testimony, because that is what God has called us to do:  “Declare God’s glory among the heathen”, as Psalms 96:3 in the King James Translation exhorts God’s people to DO

Afterall … it’s the heathen that needs salvation, right?! 

We here at Precious Testimonies have learned something very valuable in helping fulfill The Great Commission of taking the message of the cross to the four corners of the earth:  People enjoy reading testimonies in how God has worked in the lives of others.  Testimonies are non-threatening.  Testimonies are a "witness".  They are witnessing to the facts of how God has worked in a person's life. 

Has God not called all Christians to be witnesses?

99.9999% of the human race wants to know if God is real.  And once they begin to believe He’s real, then what are they to do about it.  Most of them just won’t openly admit to it!  When you share your testimony in how God became real in YOUR life by sharing the facts of how it happened … you are providing spiritual seeds/fertilizer for God to use to point people in the RIGHT direction to correctly connect with Him.   Only through Jesus Christ is it possible to correctly connect with God.  (Sorry - No exceptions to any doubters).

We’ve seen first hand how receptive people are to having born again testimonies to read.  We’ve gone to poverty stricken areas in some of the bigger cities of middle America and asked young to old if they would like to have a book of testimonies, and when it’s offered to them free of charge, it is AMAZING how eager they are to receive a copy.  Try passing out free Bibles to those same people here in America.  The vast majority of them will turn you down!

Testimonies don’t replace the Bible.  But testimonies are a VITAL tool God uses to help motivate people to one day begin reading the Bible.

A wisely written testimony is in one sense a love letter of appreciation to God … thanking Him for working in their lives.   It is an act of praise to Him, and offering continual praise to God pays HUGE dividends!

A wisely written (or spoken on video) testimony often tells about spiritual struggles the testifier had prior to becoming spiritually born again.  Why is that?Because people desperately are secretly crying out for others to understand their pain.

When hurting people can identify with your previous pain … especially your previous spiritual pain … it’s like dangling delicious bait in front of a hungry fish. 

Writing out your salvation testimony for God to use is probably one of the BEST ways to “lay up for ourselves treasures in heaven”, as Jesus admonished wise Christians to do in Matthew 6:19-21.   Long after you pass into glory, your testimony can keep working and working and working and …

Don’t let the devil give you reasons in delaying the writing of your born again testimony.  You have no assurance you’ll be on this planet tomorrow to begin writing it.  Start writing it today!

We’ve written up some tips in how to effectively write out your testimony if you’re not confident in how to go about writing it:  Tips On Writing Your Testimony

Chapters get added to our testimony as each year passes, but God calls very few of us to write a BOOK about how God has worked in our lives.  How we became saved – spiritually born again – is totally sufficient for God to work with.  One chapter is sufficient, though it can be a long chapter.

“I have so much to say … I wouldn’t even know WHERE to begin in writing up my testimony.”  We hear this said all the time.

Start out writing a paragraph a day, or a paragraph a week.  You’ll be amazed how quickly the Holy Spirit will give you the right words to say once you determine in your mind to just START writing up your testimony.

Finally … realize that YOUR testimony is unlike anyone else’s; that’s why it so valuable to God!  

Dear reader … all the time Precious Testimonies gets emails from Christians around the world, telling us how thankful they are for the testimonies on the Internet.  Truth be known … maybe your testimony will never be used of God to bring a lost soul to Christ (or maybe multitudes will come to Christ through it) … but it might encourage thousands and thousands of Christians over time to keep moving forward in their relationship with Jesus Christ. 

Please – never underestimate the importance of being used of God to encourage another struggling brother or sister in Christ through YOUR testimony. 

Remember – God can’t use it; God WON’T use it … unless you first give it to Him to use.  That’s a FACT.

A Special Message:  http://www.precious-testimonies.com/Exhortations/f-j/HelpingShareTheMessageOfTheCross.htm


Dear Reader - are you at peace with God?  If not, you can be.  Do you know what awaits you when you die?  You can have the assurance from God that heaven will be your home, if you would like to be certain.  Either Jesus Christ died for your sins, or He didn't (He did!).  Are you prepared to stand before God on the Judgment Day and tell Him that you didn't need the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the Cross to have your sins forgiven and get in right-standing with God?  We plead with you...please don't make such a tragic mistake.

To get to know God, to be at peace with God, to have your sins forgiven, to make certain heaven will be your home for eternity, to make certain that you are in right-standing with God right now ... please click here to help you understand the importance of being reconciled to God.  What you do about being reconciled to God will determine where you will spend eternity, precious one.  Your decision to be reconciled to God is the most important decision you'll ever make in this life, because in Christ, it is impossible to put a value on the worth of your soul in light of eternity.
