Our pastor has encouraged us to have a personal testimony prepared, short and to the point, so we’re ready when the opportunity comes. I’m finding it difficult to explain why I believe in God, because I can’t not believe in him. God is more real to me than my next-door neighbor. I have a two-way relationship with him that goes back to childhood. God knows every mistake I’ve made and every sin I’ve committed and loves me anyway. He doesn’t judge me; he just loves me. I can live my life joyfully and peacefully because he loved me enough to die so I don’t have to suffer guilt and shame. He freed me! And that’s why I’m still working on my testimony. What can be more important than sharing that wonderful good news with others!
