Topic: Like A Child III
Memorise: I thought it good to shew the signs and wonders that the high God hath wrought toward me. – Daniel 4:2
Read: Matthew 10:32-33 (KJV)
32 Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.
33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.
Bible In One Year: Genesis 46-48
Children are testifiers. If you give a child a gift, he or she would tell everyone about it. Children also boast a lot about their parents and the benefits they get from them. If you have just got a car, it is most likely that your child will want you to take him or her to school in it so as to show off to their friends. If you give a child a gift, if possible, he or she will tell the whole world about it.
Do you tell everyone what God has done for you or are you ashamed to talk about Him in public? Do you share testimonies of His wondrous works that will make others want to serve your God? I tell stories because I cannot help but brag about the things my God has done. These testimonies have encouraged people; some say “If God can do this, then I will serve Him too”.
There was a couple who fought every night, so much so that they became a subject of mockery to their neighbours. This went on until someone invited them to The Redeemed Christian Church of God. Both of them gave their lives to Christ and the fighting stopped. That night, their neighbours did not sleep because they were waiting for them to fight as usual; however, they were disappointed. The neighbours watched for some more days until one of them summoned the courage to ask the couple why they had not been fighting. They told him that they had met Jesus at a Church; the neighbour said “Really? I must follow you to that Church”. Before long, they introduced all their neighbours to Christ.
Your testimony is powerful enough to win souls for Christ. The people of the world brag about their witchdoctors, saying things like “There is no problem this Baba cannot solve, he solved this and that problem” and they end up winning their friends over. Your God is greater than any witchdoctor; indeed, He created all things, including the witchdoctors. ln Jeremiah 32:27, He says:
“…I am the Lord, the God of all flesh: is there anything too hard for me?
Why then can’t you brag about Him too and use your testimonies to win souls for Him? Why not tell someone going through a difficult time that your God can solve that problem? Don’t keep quiet about the things God has done for you; use them to win souls to His kingdom.
Make sure you share a testimony of something God did for you recently with an unbeliever today.
Hymn 17: Oh What A Wonderful Wonderful Day
- Oh What A Wonderful Wonderful Day
Day I Will Never Forget
After I’d Wandered In Darkness Away
Jesus My Savior I Met
Oh What A Tender Compassionate Friend
He Met The Need Of My Heart
Shadows Dispelling With Joy I Am Telling
He Made All The Darkness Depart
Heaven Came Down And Glory Filled My Soul
When At The Cross The Savior Made Me Whole
My Sins Were Washed Away
And My Night Was Turned To Day
Heaven Came Down And Glory Filled My Soul
- Born Of The Spirit With Life From Above
Into God’s Fam’ly Divine
Justified Fully Thru Calvary’s Love
Oh What A Standing Is Mine
And The Transaction So Quickly Was Made
When As A Sinner I Came
Took Of The Offer Of Grace
He Did Proffer He Saved Me
Oh Praise His Dear Name
- Now I’ve A Hope That Will Surely Endure
After The Passing Of Time
I Have A Future In Heaven For Sure
There In Those Mansions Sublime
And It’s Because Of That Wonderful Day
When At The Cross I Believed
Riches Eternal And Blessings Supernal
From His Precious Hand I Received
