5 Reasons Christians Should Share Testimonies In Church - Tunde Korede by TundeKorede: 8:26am On Aug 30, 2020
A lot of believers are oblivious to the benefits embedded in sharing testimonies in Church. Although, testimonies are not to be shared in Church alone, they can be shared at home too.

In this article, we shall examine the biblical reasons for sharing testimonies. My belief is that you will join the league of testifiers in Church after reading this blogpost.

Five Reasons Why You Need To Share Your Testimonies In Church
(1) To Strengthen The Faith Of Others


David shared the testimony of how he killed a lion and a bear with King Saul. After sharing the story, Saul’s faith in the God David served was strengthened.

1 Samuel 17:36-37
[36]Thy servant slew both the lion and the bear: and this uncircumcised Philistine shall be as one of them, seeing he hath defied the armies of the living God.

[37]David said moreover, The LORD that delivered me out of the paw of the LION, and out of the PAW OF THE BEAR he will deliver me out of the hand of this Philistine. And Saul said unto David, Go, and the LORD be with thee.
If David didn’t share that testimony with Saul. He would not have allowed him to go and fight the Philistine. Saul knew that if a man could overcome a lion, the king of the jungle. He should be able to overcome any warrior in life.

When we share our testimonies in Church, we strengthen our faith and the faith of others. If you share the testimony of how you labored and gave birth afterwards. There are some pregnant women whose faith will be strengthened.

In other words, we boost the faith of others when we share testimonies in Church. Testimony makes people to foresee possibilities and eradicate every form of impossibilities.

(2) Jesus Expects You To Share Your Testimony
Ten lepers were healed by Jesus and only one out of them came to Jesus to share his testimony. And Jesus responded saying;

Luke 17:16-17
[16]And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan.
[17]And Jesus answering said, WERE THERE NOT TEN CLEANSED? BUT WHERE ARE THE NINE?

This statement explains the fact that Jesus expected all the ten healed lepers to share their testimonies. But it was only one person who came back to give thanks.

Till today, Jesus expects us to go to where we have been healed and share our testimony. He expects us to give the testimony of how he saved us. He expects us to share the testimony of how he blessed and protected us.

Do not be an ungrateful believer. When we share testimony, it shows our hearts of gratitude. It enables the Lord to know that we appreciate Him for what He has done. It is not enough to tell you friends. Go to the person God used for you and share your testimony.

After Jesus healed the madman of Gadarenes. He told him to go and testify to his people at home;

Mark 5:19
[19]Howbeit Jesus suffered him not, but saith unto him, Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee.

Be a testifier! Don’t be an ingrate!

How To Know You Are In a Wrong Relationship

(3) To Bring Many People To Christ
It was the testimony of Jesus that the Samaritan woman shared with her friends that made many to believe Christ.

John 4:39
[39]And many of the Samaritans of that city believed on him for the saying of the woman, WHICH TESTIFIED, He told me all that ever I did.

The woman was not an ingrate. She didn’t hide under the canopy of being a shy type of a woman. She went around and publicise the ministry of Christ. Her testimony was enough for many Samaritans to believe in Jesus.

Therefore, testimonies bring people to Christ. There are people who will never be captivated by exegesis of the Scriptures. But there are people who will be captivated by true life stories of how Christ librates men. These men need our testimony!

Never hesitate to share the testimony that will bring many to Christ. Your testimony of healing can make an unbeliever to accept Christ.

(4) It’s The Secret Of Victors
Revelation 12:11
[11]And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and BY THE WORD OF THEIR TESTIMONY; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

Victorious believers will always have testimonies to share. When David overcame Lion and a bear, he had a testimony to share. Those who want to ensure consistent dominion over the works of the devil must be consistent testifiers.

The more you share your testimonies, the more God blesses you. The more you appreciate Him before many people. The more He will continue to give you songs of praise and reasons to share testimonies.

To be a victor, you must be a consistent testifier.

Biblical Reasons Why You Should Celebrate Your Birthday

(5) To Make God’s Grace Known To People
1 Corinthians 15:9-10

[9]For I am the least of the apostles, that am not meet to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God.
[10]But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.
Paul, the apostle, shared his testimony of how God located him through grace. He maintained that everything he achieved was by the grace of God.

Testimony validates the grace of God upon our lives. We are not ascribing glory to ourselves but to God. When glory is given to God, He blesses us and sees our humility.

Paul was humble enough to ascribe his success to God’s grace. This is exactly what we do, when we share our testimonies.

Warning!!!
• No man of God is to be exalted while sharing testimony. Testimony should be shared in order to return glory to God and strengthen the faith of others.

• We don’t share testimonies to showoff but to recognize God’s grace.

• Believers should desist from sharing fabricated stories in order to stir the faith of men. Be plain and be truthful whenever you share your testimony In Church.

• It is not really polite to share a testimony of a work that is not complete. For example, there is no point sharing a testimony that you have gotten pregnant when you have not given birth. If you want to do that, do it wisely.

one important reason for sharing a testimony is to Exalt, Praise, and Magnify the name of God for the great thing He Has done in your life to other people.

Another Beautiful thread by TundeKorede.
Thanks for all these great threads this beautiful Sunday morning sir.
God bless you real good.


Still talking about People’s prayer getting answered by God.
Through Jesus Christ,
Your prayers to God is answered.

Have you ever had a prayer answered?
A little story for believers in Christ...

You live in a small village in Owerri.
There is an extremely large and unsightly pothole in front of your house.
For the last four months the local government has ignored your insistent requests to have it fixed.
Finally, in an act of frustration, you call Aso Rock and ask to speak to Our Darling Daddy, The President!
(Afterall, it's worth a try!)

To your utter amazement,
Our darling Daddy himself gets on the phone.
You quickly explain your problem.
The president listens for a minute and then hangs up. You don't really expect anything to be done about it.

The next morning you look out your window and, lo and behold, some engineers are busy at work fixing your road!
Our Darling Daddy took your request seriously and sent in the troops to help!

That is what it means to get your prayer answered.

Now who is the one person who can always get through to the president?

The president's son, of course.
And who is the president's son in this case?
JESUS CHRIST!

That is our relationship with God – Father and child.
Just as a parent fulfills a child's request, so too God answers prayers.
The Infinite Genius Who created every molecule on this earth, can alter the course of existence in order to answer your prayer.

To really talk to God, you need to know He is willing and able to do it all.
Otherwise, you're only talking to your finite concept of God – and not to our true Father in Heaven.


HAVE A BEAUTIFUL SUNDAY AHEAD EVERYONE!
JESUS LOVES YOU, SO DO WE! kiss

And never forget you took a STEP, no matter how insignificant to get a Testimony...
Never get lost in the euphoria, keep taking bolder and bigger steps.

The points are valid.

Let me also add that sharing the testimony of what God has done for us brings glory to God and shame to the devil, and also strengthens our own faith.
