MAY BLOG- Remember and Tell
The angel said to John: “…I am a servant of God, just like you and your brothers and sisters who testify about their faith in Jesus. Worship only God. For the essence of prophecy is to give a clear witness for Jesus.” Revelation 19:10b NLT
We all can remember the wonderful things God has done in our lives. And beyond that, we recall the testimonies of other people we have known, and accounts from Biblical and Christian history.
Bill Johnson writes in his book, Releasing the Spirit of Prophecy: “What I have discovered is that our ability to fulfill this calling and commission (to reach and disciple nations) depends largely on one vital thing— remembering. Our capacity to remember what God has said and done in our lives and throughout history—the testimony—is one of the primary things that determine our success or failure in sustaining a Kingdom lifestyle of power for miracles.”
The next, and logical, step is to tell. Our words are much more powerful than we realize. Telling our testimony of Jesus releases our faith and the power of the Holy Spirit in the lives of those who listen. God has done mighty things—remember and tell!
