A Positive Testimony


Whether we want to be or not, we are living testimonies who represent our Christ to the world.

How do we live as positive testimonies for Christ? We show our faith through our conduct, the way we live, our obedience to Christ, and in the joy that our relationship with our Creator brings us. As we follow Christ each day, we manifest the fruit of the Spirit and radiate our eternal joy.

When we are walking in obedience to Him, He will continuously pour His power into our lives. The world will see the power of the Resurrection in us as we are transformed more and more each day in Christ-likeness. When His power is fully at work in us, our joy will be infectious, and others will want to know Jesus.

The apostle Paul told the Philippians, "Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the word of life - in order that I may boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor for nothing" (Philippians 2:14-16).

When we are experiencing full joy, we cannot help but let that show outwardly to everyone around us. When we face trials and crises, we can continue forward in confidence and with joy, knowing Christ is with us. When we experience great successes, we can rejoice in the blessings that God has given us. Our gratitude and thanksgiving will overflow and show the world we worship a truly amazing and sovereign God.

The world is always watching us. Whether we want to be or not, all Christians are living testimonies who represent our Christ to the world.

Prayer: God, I want my life to be a positive testimony for You. I pray that no matter what is going on in my life, I will always be a consistent witness to the joy of knowing You. I pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.

"Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable - if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things" (Philippians 4:8).
