What’s Your Testimony

Testimony is something that someone says.  It’s your proof or evidence that something exists or is true. It’s how you publicly make an acknowledgment or a profession of your (religious) experience.

Book of Jasher gives a more detailed insight into the fascinating relationship Enoch had with God; and this is what the writer of Hebrews records about Enoch: By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God. Heb 11:5

How amazing is that! It’s one thing to know (mentally) and another to actually believe that you are pleasing to God; however it takes one who is spiritually minded and mature to act upon this belief and make it their public testimony. Imagine people’s expression if you should profess to them “I please God”  or “I am pleasing to God”.

How would Enoch or even you and I know that we are pleasing to God;  what proof/evidence do we need to possess? The answer is given in the very next verse. But without faith it is impossible to please Him: for he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.

If after reading this you’re still unconvinced that this is proof/evidence for Enoch’s amazing testimony, perhaps a (re)-examination of how you relate to God is necessary. God is a faith God and there’s no getting around it!

As believers our greatest act of faith is believing that Christ Jesus is the Son of God, and when we place our faith in Him as our Savior (one who saves you) and our Lord (one you must obey), we are pleasing to God!

Like Enoch, let this be your public and private testimony – I please God!
