Friday night, March 9th we will change our format up a bit for this one night. We will have a more celebratory night of praise and show our Thankfulness to our God for all He has been and will be to us. We will have a Testimony Night and we want you to be involved. Please come prepared to share your testimony of God’s goodness in your life. These testimonies will be kept to less than 3 minutes per person.
Acts 4:33 “And with great power the apostles were giving testimony to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and abundant grace was upon them all”.
Biblically, the word testimony is to “give a formal statement, especially one given in a court of law”. It also means “evidence or proof”. We see here in Acts that the Apostles were testifying, telling what they had seen and heard about the resurrection of Christ. Haven’t we experienced this same “evidence or proof”? What have you seen and heard about what God is doing in your life? Has He brought healing to your body, peace to your soul, provision, maybe an increased sense of His presence? Will you testify about it?
1 John 5:11 “And the testimony is this, that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son”.
This is the greatest testimony we could ever speak about, that God has given us eternal life! We should all testify of this in our church, at Joppa House, and in the marketplace. We should also testify to those around us of the saving power of Jesus Christ. If we don’t testify, how will they hear? And if they don’t hear, how can they believe? Our lives should also be a living testimony of the goodness of God.
John 1:34 “I myself have seen, and have testified that this is the Son of God.”.
Have you seen the same thing the Apostle John saw? I have seen Christ at work in my life since I was a child. Vividly I can remember His presence during my childhood years. He was there during my rebellion years. I remember His presence during my restorative years. I know His presence now during my latter years. God has and will always be with me. Deuteronomy 31:8 “The Lord is the one who goes ahead of you; He will be with you. He will not fail you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.” This also is a testimony that many of us can declare.
1 Chronicles 16:8-9 “Oh give thanks to the Lord, call upon His name; Make known His deeds among the peoples. Sing to Him, sing praises to Him; Speak of all His wonders”.
On Friday March 9th at 6:30 pm, we will obey 1 Chronicles 16:8-9. Let us call on His name and declare His deeds among the people. We will sing praises to Him and speak of His wonders! There is so much to testify about. Please consider participating in our Joppa Friday Testimony Night. Come prepared to declare His goodness and celebrate with us what He means to you.
