The Gospel of Your Testimony

John 9:11- He replied, “The man they call Jesus made some mud and put in on my eyes. He told me to go to Siloam and wash. So I went and washed, and then I could see”; 

John 9:25 -He replied “Whether he is a sinner or not, I don’t know. One think I know. I was blind, but now I see!”

I have been reading the gospel of John in my morning devotionals lately, and the story of the blind man came up in chapter 9. This was a man who was blind from birth, and Jesus healed him by putting mud in his eyes.When the pharisees questioned him, he had a straightforward and irrefutable message: “I was blind, but now I see”.

This man wasn’t learned enough to debate the pharisees, nor did he have an understanding of a complex theology, but the power of his experience was sufficient for him to stand before the highest in court at the time and speak with conviction.

Such is the power of our testimony. In Revelation 12:11, the scripture says that “They triumphed over him (the accuser) by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony”

Often times we think that our understanding of scriptures, or theology is too limited to share the gospel with the world. Like the blind man who could see, we could start with our personal testimony. We might not have been literally blind, but for all of us who call ourselves Christians, we had a conversion point like the blind man, the person who we were before we met Christ, and the person we became after Him. Share that story, because that is the most personal Gospel you can stand on.

Have a blessed day!
