Faith Calls for Expression and Testimony
Testimony is an important part of the faith life. If you desire to develop a robust faith, then continually tell what the Lord is doing for you. The more you talk about it, the more real He becomes to you. The less you talk about it, the less real He becomes.
Faith is somewhat like love. It is of the heart, the spirit. And like love, it lives and finds its joy in the continual confession of it. In the natural, the more a husband and wife confess their love for one another, the more it grows.
If you will notice carefully the life of Jesus you will find that from the beginning of His public ministry until He is led to the cross, He is ever confessing WHO HE IS ... WHAT HE IS ... and HIS MISSION IN LIFE.
For instance, He said, "I came forth from the Father, an am come into the world again, I leave the world, and go to the Father" (John 16:28). What a bold confession! "If you want to see the Father, look on me."
We are all children of God! Sons and Daughters of God! We are heirs of God, joint heirs with Christ! We should joyfully confess our relationship with God. And in what way are we related to Him?
We are born of God. Children of God. He is our own Father. We are His very own children. We dare to take our place as sons and daughters of God and confess that is who we are!
