Today’s tip is focused on one type of personal testimony story to tell:

Bible verses mentioned:

  • Psalm 73:28:  But as for me, it is good to be near God. I have made the Sovereign Lord my refuge; I will tell of all your deeds.
  • Isaiah 63:7 I will tell of the kindnesses of the Lord, the deeds for which he is to be praised, according to all the Lord has done for us— yes, the many good things he has done for Israel, according to his compassion and many kindnesses.

You could tell stories of God’s work in the Old Testament

  • How God delivered the people of Israel
  • How God worked in the lives of individuals
  • Pslams are full of stories of deliverance, blessing, testimonies.

You could tell stories of God’s work in the New Testament

  • What Jesus did for us on the cross
  • How the Spirit of God grew the church.
  • How Paul experienced guidance from God in church planting.

But here is the question for us:

Can we talk about current experiences of God’s work in our life?

We find these stories as we spend time nurturing our devotional life.  That could be through reading the Word, listening prayer as God God speaks to you and gives you guidance, the steps of obedience you take, and even reflection on the outcome of that obedience.

We have more than our testimony of how we came to faith

Three Specifics about telling current stories of God’s work

  1. Be clear
  2. Tell details that are appropriate.
  3. Avoid Generalizations

    I would like to use your video clip entitled Current Stories which is on your website. It is my impression the download is an MP3 which is just audio. How can I purchase this clip for video to be shown during a segment of our worship service.
