Describe What Great Things God Has Done

 “Return to your house and describe what great things God has done for you.” So he went away, proclaiming throughout the whole city what great things Jesus had done for him. — Luke 8:39

Do you have a testimony to share with someone today? Has God done anything for you today?

Sharing our testimony of faith is more than sharing how we came to know God through Jesus Christ by believing in Him and confessing our sins. It is wonderful to accept Jesus as our Savior but our testimonies of faith get better and better as years go by when we focus on our relationship with Jesus.

Walking with Jesus everyday and seeing how He is at work gives us a voice to share with others. If we are not drawing near to the Lord we are not seeing Him at work. Drawing near allows our eyes to see the things He sees, to have the mind of Christ, and experience the joy of the walk. It is hard to keep quiet when we are overjoyed by something. When awesome things happen in our lives we are quick to share the good news. It should be the same with our walk with Jesus. When we keep seeking Him daily we experience Him daily and so in turn we have something to share daily. The challenge is to be able to share something everyday.

Jesus told the man to return to his house and describe what great things God has done for him but he went proclaiming throughout the whole city. That is the effect of Jesus on your life when you are surrendered to His will in your life. You can’t contain yourself. You need to share the great things He has done. To God be the glory!!!!

Continually seeking Him,

Do You Hear?

Therefore Pilate said to Him, “So You are a king?” Jesus answered, “You say correctly that I am a king. For this I have been born, and for this I have come into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice.” — John 18:37

Jesus speaks. Are we listening? Do we recognize His voice? Jesus says, “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me;”. If we are His sheep who hear His voice then we will be following Him. That means we are obedient, putting our faith and trust in Him, walking in His ways. We have a relationship with Jesus. When we have a relationship with someone we can recognize their voice before we even see them. We have yet to see Jesus face to face but we should recognize His voice.

Through our relationship with Jesus, grace and truth are realized. Jesus is the way, the truth and the life (John 14:7). This Truth, Jesus Christ, sets us free. In response to His voice we come and are saved from the wrath of God, from our own demise. In response to Christ, we desire to hear His voice. We seek His Word, listen to teachers and preachers, and in quiet prayer we listen for the still small voice of our conscience.

As we develop our relationship with Jesus we start to recognize His voice more and more. We know Him intimately and when others speak we are able to decipher the spirit of truth from the spirit of error. Those who are of God hears the words of God.

Continually seeking Him,

and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.” — John 8:32

We are from God; he who knows God listens to us; he who is not from God does not listen to us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error. — 1 John 4:6
