The 'churchy' term is 'A Testimony'. But really it's the story of how Jesus' love showed up in our lives and His grace and forgiveness transformed us.
The Bible has a verse from The Revelation chapter 12 verse 11 that says that "They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death".
This verse is not based on circumstances (which for the recipients were difficult if their death was possible) !!
And this verse seems to highlight the common elements of the victorious follower of Christ: The Blood of the Lamb - WHAT JESUS HAS DONE ON THE CROSS ONCE FOR ALL and
The Word of our Testimony - US TELLING OTHERS ABOUT WHAT JESUS DID FOR US

One brave woman at Woodvale has already given me permission to share hers and I hope you will follow her lead.
