Public Testimony

1 Samuel 10: 17-27
Memory Verse:
“And Samuel said to all the people, ‘Do you see him whom the LORD has chosen, that there is no one like him among all the people?’ So, all the people shouted and said, ‘Long live the king!'” (1 Samuel 10:24).

A testimony is an open declaration of what God has done for an individual or a group of people. It gives God the glory and confirms the work He has done. It stimulates faith in sincere seekers to receive their needed blessings. Samuel had testified to what God had done to Saul. God had anointed Saul as king over Israel and given him a new heart, as he was filled with the Holy Spirit.
Without this public testimony, how would the people have known that Saul was their chosen king? Thus, the testimony put paid to the search for a king, and brought a public witness and acceptance of the new king with all his privileges and responsibilities.

When we become born again, we need to testify of it publicly. It serves as a witness to all, declaring what God can do to a sincere seeker of salvation. It is another way of spreading the gospel. It encourages the believer’s faith to remain steadfast in God. The power of testimony is underscored by the example of the Samaritan woman after her encounter with Jesus. She was so effective in her testimony that many people in her city rushed to Jesus and were saved too (John 4:29,39). When our hearts are purged and made holy, when we receive baptism in the Holy Ghost, and when our prayers are answered, we should share our testimony. This will glorify the Lord, create faith in others, and encourage them to seek God and such godly experiences.

Prayer Point:
1. Father, let the testimony of my salvation encourage sinners to come to Christ.
2. I declare this day that my testimony will neither be corrupted nor altered by sin.
