RCCG Open Heaven 19th April 2022 MESSAGE:
Testimonies are powerful – so powerful that they can birth many other great things. Whenever you lock up your testimony in your heart and refuse to share it, you have no idea how many other great things you are actually locking up.
In the Bible reading for today, the little girl had every reason to keep her mouth shut being a mere slave, but she shared the testimony of the awesome power of her God. That simple testimony birthed many more which include the healing of Naaman and his conversion from serving idols to worshipping the Most High God.
It was the testimonies Bartimaeus had heard in the past that birthed his own testimonies (Mark 10:46-52). When you share your testimony, you are helping to raise the faith of other people to also receive a miracle from God. I remember when I just joined the Redeemed Christian Church of God and I would hear people talk about the healing power of the Lord.
I found it hard to believe that one could get healed without medication. In fact, my thought was, “You people have shown me the way to heaven; please don’t try to get me there faster than necessary”. However, one day, I saw an old man who was always bent double due to a disease, standing and walking upright.
I was shocked, so when it was announced that he would be sharing his testimony of divine healing at the evening service, I was the first to arrive. By the time I heard his testimony, my faith arose and I also began to walk in divine health from then. Your testimony is a link to someone else’s testimony, so don’t hide it.
Secondly, testimonies draw people to become members of the Kingdom of God. Jesus said in John 4:48 that some people will not believe the gospel unless they see signs and wonders.
Share your testimonies with unbelievers, let them know how great your God is, let them realise what they are missing when they refuse to surrender their lives to Him. The young girl in the Bible reading today shared her testimony with unbelievers and ended up winning them to God. Your testimony may be all that you need to win that fellow in your office or neighbourhood to Christ; be sure to share it today.
Share a testimony of God’s goodness and power with at least one unbeliever today. You can even do it on social media.
