The Best Testimony!

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! – 2 Cor 5:17 (NIV)

Back in the old days it was common for Born Again followers of Jesus (Balokole) to share their testimony in public places, especially public transport. They would share freely how they had accepted Christ and had transformed their lives. But these days one also often comes across streets preachers calling on masses to accept Christ. They do not share much of their lives, how changed there are, like the old Balokole.

The old Balokole brethren valued most a changed lifestyle as the best evidence of Christ work in one’s life. If one had been a serial adulterer, lost helplessly on drink and involved in corruption the evidence was how such gave up the old ways for a new life in Christ. The brethren would take great time counting how they are no longer inclined to their old sinful ways.

Today we need to hear that message too. So often all we hear is what Christ can do to help one achieve or acquire something. In some places there is quite a bit of stressing becoming materially prosperous. Nothing wrong there and surely God does bless His followers. But the greatest miracle of Christ is to come into a lost life and change it where no one could. The alcoholic gives up an addiction which no cure could find because of the power of Christ.

Prayer for Today: Lord Father in heaven, today I pray that my life shows the change brought over by accepting and knowing you!
