By The Word of Our Testimony
3/8/2016

Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, “Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down.  And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death. Rev. 12:10-11 (NKJV)

There are times when we attempt to share the truths of the Bible, but we find some folks unwilling to receive it. Some are stubborn, and prideful, and they simply don’t want to receive the gift God has for them. Such was the case with the Pharisees and Jesus, as recorded in the book of John. Jesus had just healed a blind beggar, and all the Pharisees could do was to accuse Him of being a sinner for healing on the Sabbath day. 

The Pharisees asked the man, “What do you say about Him because He opened your eyes?” The man answered, “He is a prophet.”  So they told him, “Give God the glory! We know that this Man is a sinner.”  And he answered and said, “Whether He is a sinner or not I do not know. One thing I know: that though I was blind, now I see” (John 9:17, 24-25).

This man’s answer was his personal testimony of what Jesus had done in his life, and it was priceless —“One thing I know: that though I was blind, now I see.”  A few verses later, we see the man confessed he believed Jesus, called Him Lord, and he began to worship Him. And as a result he was excommunicated from the Temple, and was deemed a social outcast for his belief in Jesus as Lord. However, he received eternal life, and had overcome Satan’s plan to kill, steal, and destroy his life.

I think this story is a reminder to us of just how powerful our testimony can be. If we have personally experienced the revelation of Jesus Christ, and have received Him into our hearts, then we, like King David, can rightly say, “He also brought me up out of a horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my steps” (Ps. 40).

I want to encourage you to think and pray upon this truth today. 

STUDY QUESTION: According to Revelation 12:10-11 how is Satan defeated?

PERSONAL INVENTORY: Are you sharing what Jesus has done for you with others?

PRACTICAL APPLICATION: Share how Jesus saved you from the horrible pit and has set your feet upon solid rock.

MAKE THIS YOUR PRAYER TODAY: Father, thank You for giving me the ability to have a relationship with You. Help me to share what You have done for me with others today. In Jesus’ precious name, amen…

Be blessed, Pastor Scott
