“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. (Matthew 5:14-15)
One of the most important parts of carrying the Cross / being a disciple of Jesus is testifying what the Lord has done in our lives. We need to do it not because the Lord needs us to glorify Him and praise Him. It has the same reason why the Israelites were told to keep a pot of Manna in the Ark of Covenant / Testimonies.
The Lord asked them to keep some Manna in a golden pot in the Ark; the same Manna which fell every day (except for the Sabbath days), would usually go bad within a day, never spoiled when kept in the Ark for years. The Manna reminded them of the promise which the Lord gave with regards to provide for them till they entered the promise land.
Our testimonies are like the Manna kept in that precious pot which we hold within us. We need these testimonies to be kept fresh always within us so as to remind ourselves the promise the Lord has given us of providing for us until we enter our Promise Land which is Heaven.
Sharing our testimonies does encourage others but more than that by sharing it we encourage ourselves.
So all that the gracious Lord has done for you in your life keep it in your heart and do open your mouth and share it with others. By doing this you are not doing a favor unto others or to God but to your own self.
“The unbelieving world should see our testimony lived out daily because it just may point them to the Savior.”
Heavenly Father, You are God and all things are known unto You. You created everything and You also created man. You knew the strength and weakness of man, therefore gave us the Book of Instruction so as to guide us in our walk back unto You after being led astray. Lord, help us keep our weak hearts strong with all the glorious things which You have done for this unworthy me. Help us remember always and open our mouth and share it with others. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
