Share Your Story

This week, we kicked off a new season of Upward with evaluations, and we are excited about the season ahead of us! One of my favorite things about Upward seasons are the halftime testimonies we get to hear. At each game’s halftime, we get to hear of how God is moving and has moved in each other’s lives. We’ve heard stories of God restoring families, healing addictions, and overcoming earthly temptations, yet each story is significant because it tells of how God takes broken people and forgives, redeems, and restores us back to Him.

You see, no matter what your testimony may look like, God has taken a broken sinner destined for Hell, saved them by the suffering of His Son, and given them new life in Him. The Apostle John said it this way, “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death” (Revelation 12:11).

After Jesus’ ascension, Peter and John are sharing of what Jesus had done to all that would hear and are told to cease by the authorities. Their response? “for we cannot but speak of what we have seen and heard” (Acts 4:20).

What God had done through His Son was personal to them, and they could not keep themselves from telling of all the good they had seen and heard of Him do. Is that true for you?
Has God done something personal in your life? Is what He’s done worthy of being shared with others who are just as broken as we once were without Christ? I challenge every believer to spend some time this week writing out your testimony of how God has moved in your life. Tell of your life before Christ, how He saved you, and how your life is now different in Him.

Your testimony is significant. Your testimony is powerful. Your testimony is to be shared. This Upward season, you’ll have an opportunity to do just that, and I pray that you will be faithful in telling of what Jesus has done for you.

God bless,
Rev. Evan Alexander
