Testify To Christ

DO YOU remember the first time you were encouraged by someone’s personal testimony?

Romans 10:14 says, “How can people have faith in the Lord and ask him to save them, if they have never heard about him? And how can they hear, unless someone tells them?”

Like you, those involved in First Nations ministry are responsible to tell others about Christ Jesus, as well as share their personal testimony.

TODAY, I INVITE YOU to pray with me that our Native American people and those serving in Native Ministry will rise up and testify.

Acts 26:16 says, “Now stand up. I have appeared to you, because I have chosen you to be my servant. You are to tell others what you have learned about me and what I will show you later.”

Ask our Creator to encourage our First Nations people and those serving in Native Ministry, to tell others about Him, His Son Jesus, and how He has touched their lives with His Light.

I like to study with 5 translations. As you go through these studies, I encourage you to do the same. “The Scriptures” is a translation that includes the original Hebrew names and has the books in chronological order. The Contemporary English Version (CEV) is a translation that is written for ‘oral tradition’ peoples and it flows well while reading it aloud. The Amplified version is one where meanings of words and phrases are ‘amplified’ for better understanding. The King James Version (KJV) is the translation that works well with Strong’s Concordance. The Complete Jewish Bible (CJB) is a great companion version that I find gives great insight.

Matthew 4:17; Acts 26:16-18; 1 Chronicles 16:8-9; Palms 105:1-2; Isaiah 12:4-5.

BONUS: Luke 2:15, 17, & 20.
