God has used
The Bible epistles
To remove thistles
From my heart
And now I whistle
The 1st century Christ-followers overcame the devil “by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.” Jesus is living and working inside of every faithful Christ-follower, every single day. We all have testimonies about what He is doing in us, for us, and thru us. But do we share those devil-overcoming testimonies, or do we keep them quietly hidden under a bushel basket? One powerful way to share them is to write “e-pistles.” What an opportunity we 21st century Christians have to freely spread our daily testimonies around the world thru social media and blog posts.
I encourage every Christ-follower to shout it from the housetops of the internet by writing their own “e-pistles” full of their own testimonies and the word of God. Their “e-pistles” can be a few words, a few sentences, a few paragraphs, or even a few e-books. Jesus has called us to be His missionaries to our culture, not our culture’s mission field. (We are to influence our culture by sharing our testimonies and epiphanies about the living Jesus, not to be influenced by the sins and media of our culture.)
Paul wrote His epistles and look at the incredible way God has used them for 2,000 years! Paul had no idea that his letters would still be read and changing lives 2,000 years later! Write your testimonies. Share your stories of how Christ has worked and is working in and thru you. If you need a model to help get you started, find me on Facebook or Twitter. The living Word burns in my heart and I am so grateful to have an opportunity to share it far and wide thru writing “e-pistles.”
