Heard you were coming
What kind of testimony do you have that you become so important, so sought after at seminars and conferences, such a wanted commodity, that people who know you are coming, will make sure they drop everything just to hear your story?
Well, I am not too sure what kind of testimony that would be, but I do know that this kind of testimony comes from the way God takes His people to Himself. It is a testimony of ones journey following God.
Everyone’s testimony is important, even if not infamous.
The former events of our lives are usually mentioned in a testimony and there are usually descriptions of God’s providence, seen or unseen at the time, in our lives, or at least in the life of our family. There are also stories of where we used to live and occupied our life with. There is even a reflection on our attitudes.
Following that we have the revelation of sin, ingratitude and disobedience followed quickly by the kindness of God that leaves us without excuse for our sins. So much so that we would never want to travel the paths we travelled on before unless we could travel them with the hope and grace of God so that we would not commit these sins again.
That testimony is something that goes before us when we declare it loud and clear. We boast in the glory of God and it is the glory of God that goes before us wherever we go. Have we been telling it – if so, there are people who are hearing it and when you come they can’t wait to tell you that they have been waiting for you to tell it again.
