A Haiku - Testimony

A Haiku - Testimony

Gospel truths to share.

Faith knows the unknowable,

And explains itself.

The seasons come and go, but truth is unchanging.


If it is worth doing, then it simply is and should be done.

Have you ever felt as if you had five days' work to do, and only two days in which to get it done?

How did it come out? My guess? You surprised yourself and got it finished.

What does that have to do with testimony?

When it comes to testifying of God's precious gift of His son, and His son's precious gift of a sinless sacrifice for all mankiind, a testimony of that truth can look like being responsible for an impossible task.

Spreading the gospel throughout the world is just what Christians are commanded to do.

God never hands out assignments knowing they can't be fulfilled; or does He?

We are told to be perfect, even as He is perfect. How do we mortals fulfill that commandment?

That first one, spreading the gospel, must be part of the second one I mentioned. Surely we cannot be perfect without keeping God's commandments.

So each Christian best be spreading the gospel, if he or she wants to try to be perfect.

Education allows us to write, speak in words others can understand, discuss and present our side of the discussion. We can do that, and when it comes to testifying of the gospel and of Christ, our amount of education, our ability to speak and to reason, is not as important as our sincerity when we speak of something that has such a divine purpose.

We speak from our heart and let God's Spirit do the rest.

With God all things are possible. Share the faith you have. Others need it, too.

It's never too late to make a difference.

Sunday is notoriously a poor day for attracting viewers, though it is a great day for reflection and deciding what to write. Perhaps the best bet is to write something on Sunday and publish it on Monday, even a Hub dealing with such a subject as testimony. Any observations about this?

aviannovice - Now I know at least one other person who hangs out on HP for at least part of the day on Sunday, and "it is meet to do good on the Sabbath."

My testimony is in a few of my hubs. I wrote one about Prayers. My testimony is that prayers work. Many people whom I will never know had been praying for me when I was near death. My prayer was answered in that what I went through saved my daughter from death by hard drugs. You have a lot of awesome hubs!
