How Can We Faithfully Testify to the Work of Jesus in our Lives?
4. Keep the focus on Jesus. The blind man's testimony did not get derailed by side issues of politics or minor points of theology. He kept his focus on what Jesus had done for him and what that told him about who Jesus was.
5. Don't quit when you run into opposition. The blind man was not rude or obnoxious, but he didn't wither away in his testimony at the first sign of conflict or disagreement. He maintained the clarity and strength of his testimony, even in the face of much opposition.
May the Lord strengthen us by His Holy Spirit to be witnesses like the blind man of John 9. Today's prayer, instead of being focused on a Psalm, is based on this chapter in John.
Prayer Based on John 9:
Heavenly Father, give us a holy boldness and a Spirit-led clearness in our testimony to others about who Jesus is and what He has done for us. We are your children by grace. You have saved us. Your work in us is something we should be eager to tell others, simply and clearly. Give us opportunities to do so. Lord. Grant us favor with those who need to know You. Use us as Your ambassadors to take the message of Your saving grace to those trapped in sin and dead in unbelief. May You save them by Your grace, even as You have saved us. In Jesus' name, Amen.
