There have always been many voices saying “This is the way to know God.” Today’s media explosion has created more voices and more confusion. Why then another? Our purpose is to share truth to help strengthen your relationship with God and with other believers in your locality.

Personal connection with other believers cannot be replaced by the mass media. It is much more satisfying to have a deep spiritual relationship with ten believers than to be in a crowd of ten thousand. Every individual is important to God, and His plan involves each one in a very real way. There are things that are important to God that can only take place in close personal relationships.

The goal of God is to build a family of His children together in love, walking in truth. Personal submission and obedience to Christ will bring conformity of each member to Christ, and a growing expression of the nature of God in a local gathering. The testimony going out to the world around will be as a “light set on a hill that cannot be hidden” and “the pillar and ground of the truth.”

Episode 31: The Testimony of God

I am sure we have considered the importance of testimony. What is the testimony that God is looking for? What is the value of testimony in the hands of the Holy Spirit? Are we a testimony to the glory of God? I think that most of us would say that a person that tells us “do as I say but not as I do” has very little to offer anybody. We all want to hear from somebody who is living what they teach, and especially when that teaching agrees with the character of God as revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord. The life or testimony that a person lives opens the door for us to receive from that person.  Jesus is our prime example in that. He was the “Word of God made flesh.” What was true for him is also true for us.

• Our Personal Testimony
o Each believer is responsible to Jesus Christ as Lord
o God has provided the grace to live His life
o Inward righteous is revealed in outward obedience
• Our Family Testimony
o The natural family is where our testimony is first seen and tested
o The character of God is seen in right relationships
o Accountability is first learned in the family
o Church leaders are first tested and proven in the family life
o A Godly family is a great witness to the reality of God
• Our Corporate Testimony
o The local church (assembly) is the Family of God
o The character of God is revealed in right spiritual relationships
o The church is the place that the testimony of righteousness is upheld
o Each assembly is responsible for the maintenance of the testimony
o The Lord’s Table is significant place of accountability to God and one another
• Ministry to other localities
o Others want to know how truth is being lived out where the minister came from
o Truth should be proved out first in the local assembly before taking it to others
o The Holy Spirit is able to bring an anointing (authority) on a good testimony
• Concern for the testimony of God
o Willing to accept responsibility (personal and corporate)
o Avail of the grace of God to fulfill this responsibility
