Testimony

By Mark Zarr

Testimony

Description

Have you ever been disappointed by the church? Do you find yourself feeling as if you are on the outside looking in? For many of us church, religion, and even God seem to be unattainable. Whether we have been burned, never truly accepted, or lost in the sea of programs and church growth strategies, we all sense that something is off. Where is the Grace, Love, and Mercy that Christ came to share with us all? Miraculous stories abound of lives that have been turned around. But where is the proof of changed lives? At some point, shouldn't we see these transformations?

The truth is that God's grace is for everyone. We have all fallen short, but that is only the beginning of our story. Only God's testimony is powerful enough to save us from ourselves. Our story should not be told in words, but should be lived and explored through our daily walk. We should not merely talk about grace, and mercy, and love, when we have been given the amazing gift, by Christ's death and resurrection, to show grace, mercy, and love. Our real testimonies are defined not by who we were, but by who we are willing to become.
