Weekend Devo — Our Greatest Testimony
As I was walking the other day, I had what I call a dream vision. Basically this is my imagination running a little wild with possibility. In this “drimagination” I was with my husband in front of a group and we were sharing our testimony about our faith journeys, walking from a mismatched couple to now sharing a growing and vibrant marriage based in Jesus.
This may sound crazy but I choose to dream big and love to see God wow me. So, it was brief and fun, but what really hit me is the testimony part. What is our testimony now?
On my post last week I talked about how we don’t have to defend our faith and one reader left this comment:
Sometimes I think it can be tough because if prior to our salvation, we weren't addicted to drugs or worse, we feel like our testimony doesn't really matter. That is so not true. Even in the world's eyes if what God saved us from wasn't a big deal, in God's eyes it is. It doesn't even matter, He saved us from an eternity in Hell and we need to stand by that, claim it, and share it. — Heather Passuello
Heather is on to something here and the pieces of the puzzle fell in place as a result of my daydreaming.
You are on of God’s greatest testimonies. Did you know that? Each of us stand as a testimony to God’s amazing love and represent what He has done in our lives.
He saved us! He saved us from an eternity in Hell separated from Him. We are now forever adopted into the family of God and have a place in Heaven with Jesus as coheirs.
Think about it. Just as you, where you are sitting, laying, standing right now—you represent a powerful testimony of God’s love. As Heather so wisely said, let’s claim it and live in the truth that we are Children of God!
Praying & believing,
For fun and inspiration, another Third Day song, Children of God!
