the light of GodRecently, I was encouraged to write my testimony. Like me, you may have done this sometime in the past. If so, then I am writing to encourage you to write it again. This time, write it with the understanding that your testimony is an asset for the kingdom of God – a disciple making asset. Use it to encourage others and bring glory to our Father in heaven. If you have not written your testimony, then I am writing to ask you, “What are you waiting for?”

I humbly offer my own as an example.

This is a story about the making of a man. This man’s name is Rob Streetman. Rob is not a great deal unlike many men; but Rob is unique. Consequently, parts of Rob’s story – His being made – will be familiar, and parts will be strange. Hopefully, you will be encouraged by the former, and challenged by the later.

The important thing to keep in mind is that we are all being made into something… by someone. We are all “in process”. As you will see in his story, Rob is not a self-made man; and he is most grateful to God for that. He tried that approach for a season. It didn’t go well for him or anyone else. Fortunately, The Maker is patient and persistent in His love. That is the testimony of Rob’s making.

Every Christian should be grateful for, and be willing to share, their testimony of God’s mercy, grace and faithfulness. I like the idea of developing our testimony in a form that can be shared in the workplace (e.g., brochure, post card, and video). I believe God will multiply our investment in such a kingdom offering.

As you are developing your testimony, I want to encourage you to consider something more than the testimony of your past. Consider that the promises of God for your future are as real and true as anything He has done in your past. Much of what God has done for you is still being worked out in your life. You are a work in progress.

This may sound strange to you. It may be different to the point of uncomfortable. I encourage you; allow the Holy Spirit to speak to you in this. I believe you will find that the promises of your “future testimony” will be even greater than the ones of your past – as powerful as that testimony has been. Here are a few verses for your consideration and meditation:

For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. Romans 5:10

But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord. 2Corinthians 3:18

Commit your way to the Lord,
Trust also in Him,
And He shall bring it to pass.
He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light,
And your justice as the noonday.
Psalm 37:5-6

Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:16

Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,
Nor have entered into the heart of man
The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.
1Corinthians 2:9

Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father. John 14:12

The promises of God are the destiny of those that believe; and that is the first key. Faith (believing) comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. God has many words for you; words of destiny and promise. Are you hearing? Are you investing the time necessary to know His voice?

Once the promise of God is heard, faith will rise up in your heart. At that point, the faith must be worked out; because faith without works is dead. This is the second key. This means living in the truth of the word you have heard. It means doing what the Master has said. Are you a bondservant of Jesus Christ? Are you willing to do whatever He would say to you? Have you committed your time to His will for His kingdom?

God bless you with the grace to invest your time wisely; that you would hear and do the sayings of Jesus Christ, our Lord.

Humbly yours and forever His,

Rob Streetman – President, inLight Consulting, Inc.
