Who will tell what the risen Jesus is doing?

When I testify
About how
The risen Jesus
Changed my life,
It makes me cry.

To testify about the risen Jesus is to tell people what He has done and is doing in your life. A Christian testimony is the story of how the living Jesus has changed you and the role He is playing in your life. Do you have one?

When churches don’t open the platform to people’s testimonies, members don’t realize what Jesus is doing in each other’s lives. If Christians don’t testify about what the risen Jesus is doing in their life, it makes people think He’s not doing anything. When we neglect to testify about what the risen Jesus is doing, we’re withholding information that can help people.

Sermons focus on religious information. Testimonies focus on how the living Jesus has produced and is producing personal transformation. Hearing ordinary people tell what the living Jesus has done in their life has greatly increased my faith.

When Christianity replaced salvation testimonies with religious ceremonies, it lost much power. Testify about the living Jesus. Show and tell what He has done and is currently doing in your life. Hearing people testify about how the risen Jesus has and is working stirs up faith to believe that God can work in you and in your situation.

If you haven’t personally experienced the living, resurrected Jesus, you don’t have anything to testify about Him. If you know that the risen Jesus has helped you, then you have a testimony. “Let the redeemed of the Lord say so.”

Almost every morning the risen Jesus wakes me up with a stream of creative thoughts flowing through my mind. Recently the risen Jesus told me to “stop trying and start trusting” and He’s been reminding and helping me with that every day. Almost every day the resurrected Jesus brings at least one person my way for me to pray with.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia."
