What is the difference between telling a story and a testimony? Webster’s dictionary tells us that the word story is a classical Greek term which means the telling of an event or events; account; narration. I have heard many people speak of the bible as a book of stories. This is far from the truth. Webster also defines the word testimony as a classical Latin word which means ‘a statement’ made under OATH to establish a FACT providing evidence of proof. This is what the bible is. It is a book of testimonies, statements made by people under oath (spiritual) establishing the fact that the Trinity does exists. No other collection can say the same.
Your life, Your experiences, Your situations, Your circumstances, and Your victories are not mere stories; they are testaments that the events that happened in your life are factual. You state under spiritual oath that these events did take place and the results were as they were. When you are giving an account to the miracles, signs, and wonders that God has performed in your life it is a testimony given under spiritual oath. Don’t count your testimony short (insignificant); it is the truth of who you are and who God is to you. It is a great thing. Remember your testimony can be heard the most when you are not speaking. Your life letter tells it all.
