In the Christian world, a lot of lingo gets tossed around.
One of which is the word testimony.
People will often ask, “What’s your testimony?”
Basically, a testimony is a faith story. Usually, it’s in reference to a person’s personal relationship with the Jesus man.
Mine is pretty simple. I tell a more detailed story on my Faith Journey page.
I grew up going to church on Sunday. I went to religion class on Wednesday.
But I didn’t get it, ya know? I had a religion, not a relationship.
Not until my freshman year of college.
I realized Christianity isn’t about religion. It’s not about being good. It’s not about a set of rules.
It’s about having a living, breathing relationship with a living, breathing God.
It’s about trusting in Him completely.
And discovering that surrendering brings crazy freedom. I mean, off the hook, transformative freedom.
