Two Step Testimony

As I continue my journey through the Bible this year, I read one of my favorite accounts again this morning.  It’s the story of the man who was born blind. (John 9) One day Jesus came along and completely transformed his dark world.  The forever-skeptical Pharisees questioned the man.  How did this happen?

The once blind man’s response is one of my favorite responses in the whole Bible.  He replied, “Whether he (Jesus) is a sinner or not, I don’t know. One thing I do know. I was blind but now I see!” (John 9:25)

I love these verses.   You know what it reminds me of?  It reminds me of one of those cardboard testimonies I’ve seen in church.  If you’ve never seen one you can watch one here.

Today, I was reminded that we often make sharing our faith harder than it needs to be.  But really, it should be simple.

1.Jesus touched my life.
2. I am forever changed.
The end.

So of course I’m curious.  What would your cardboard testimony say?

    Ummm, will have to think about that one to condense it into something short and sweet but i so agree with you. We certainly do complicate things. Your “Jesus touched my life, I am changed, forever” reminds me of:
    God said it
    I believe it
    That settles it!
    God bless
