“I proclaim your saving acts in the great assembly; I do not seal my lips, Lord, as you know. I do not hide your righteousness in my heart; I speak of your faithfulness and your saving help. I do not conceal your love and your faithfulness from the great assembly.” Psalm 40:9-10
What a gift we have to be able to tell the world what God has done for us. We can do it through our testimonies, songs, poems, books, relationships, stories. It can be through what we say and what we do.
When our mom died we knew without question that she had been a follower of Christ. She had spoken it, prayed it, taught it, lived it. But one of the questions that many people want to know when they have a loved one dying is whether they know Jesus. Why? Because the testimony has not been spoken and the life has not necessarily reflected that relationship.
These verses make it clear that we are to make it clear to the world around us that we are followers of the Lord. There should be no question to those who know us.
It is a gift to us to be able to share it. It is a gift to those who will hear it.
What will our words and actions say today?
I want to share about You today, Lord. Help me to boldly proclaim who You are and what You have done.
