THE MINISTRY OF TESTIMONIES
2 Corinth 10:4-5
Testimony is quite a big word in the kingdom context….. Unlike in our services and how we take it
It is important to note that the Bible is a testament of God’s dealings with man that points to Christ as the Mediator.
Hence we have
The old and the new testament
Let’s start with our first anchor scripture. Mark 8
KJV:And Jesus went out, and his disciples, into the towns of Caesarea Philippi: and by the way he asked his disciples, saying unto them, Whom do men say that I am?
KJV:And they answered, John the Baptist; but some say, Elias; and others, One of the prophets.
KJV:And he saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Peter answereth and saith unto him, Thou art the Christ.
KJV:And he charged them that they should tell no man of him.
I was a drawn to the fact that Jesus wanted to know what people thought about him- his reputation….
He even goes as far as asking those closer to him: his disciples what they thought of him individually
With all Humility…I will just go on… But I’m sure this would bless someone
From the first anchor scripture…… Jesus tries to highlight that it is important to know the person you pledge to follow……
We must know the God we profess
He is a little bordered by the world’s view of him…. But he concentrates on those who follow him…. Peter and company
Because God desires that we follow him with all of our might, soul and spirit…….
He desires us. He wants us to obey him from a stand point of love and not because of things attached to serving him…. Or even because of the fear of hell flames
And how do we prove we’ve known God….
Through our convictions in our thoughts and hearts, our deeds and actions
To be continued…
