Speak For Yourself
We know he is our son,” the parents answered, “and we know he was born blind. But how he can see now, or who opened his eyes, we don’t know. Ask him. He is of age; he will speak for himself.”
– John 9:20-21
A certain blind man encountered Jesus and received his sight. The Pharisees at the time had publicly made known that anyone who testified of Christ would be put out of the Synagogue and so his parents backed out of answering to a very obvious miracle.
The onus to testify fell on the man and he did at the risk of being excommunicated. Why was it easier for him to do what his parents could not? It was because he was the beneficiary of the grace and power of God.
Perhaps the reason why people find it hard to talk about their Lord could be that what they have is an inherited or borrowed faith.
A real experience with the Lord will leave you with a story to tell.
With an undeniable transformation too awesome to be left locked in your heart you too will speak up damning all consequences. Consider 1 John 1:1 (That …which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled…).
Have you seen His Hand?
Have you heard His sweet Voice?
Were you convinced of Him as you touched Him?
If you are fully persuaded of His work in your life you will also speak for yourself to every one of His faithfulness.
This is the secret of easy witnessing. This is true gratitude in this season of Christmas.
Experience His power today through faith! Share your story with someone.
In Jesus Name I declare I am bold and strong, I am not ashamed or dismayed. I am born of the incorruptible seed. I will speak of the goodness of the Lord forever. With my mouth I will make known His faithfulness to all generation. Amen
