THE PRECIOUS VALUE OF YOUR BORN AGAIN TESTIMONY
(By: Norm Rasmussen)
The precious value of your born again testimony cannot be measured by earthly standards. What is it’s true value? It is more valuable to God than all the wealth of this world! Why? Because God is the author of your born again testimony (assuming you have one, of course). Scripture tells us in Hebrews 12:2, "Jesus is the author and finisher of our faith." What Jesus “authors” you cannot put a monetary value on.
God gives born again believers a HUGE glimpse at the importance of allowing Him to use our testimonies to help advance the Kingdom of God here on earth in the following paragraph:
After his deliverance of the legion of demons, the Gadarene demoniac naturally wanted to stay with Jesus. Rather than grant his desire, Jesus told him: “Go home to your friends, and tell them what great things the Lord has done for you, and how He has had compassion on you.” Jesus commissioned this man to go back home and became his community’s first Christian missionary, and all God asked him to do was share his testimony. It was the wisdom of God in operation! You and I have the same commission in our sphere of influence (which can be the world via the Internet!) because God has had compassion on YOU as well and has spared you from eternal damnation . . . go TELL what the Lord has done for YOU!
Dear born again believer . . . God didn't give you a born again testimony to bury -- to keep to yourself. He wants you telling it every where you go ... at every opportunity you have!
The only "bad" born again testimony is the one not shared.

Here is an impacting teaching from Evangelist Jim Barbarossa from STEP BY STEP WORLD OUTREACH MINISTRIES on the value of testimonies for witnessing - soul winning:
Dear Reader - are you at peace with God? If not, you can be. Do you know what awaits you when you die? You can have the assurance from God that heaven will be your home, if you would like to be certain. You can even have that assurance RIGHT NOW! Either Jesus Christ died for your sins, or He didn't (He did!). Are you prepared to stand before God on the Judgment Day and tell Him that you didn't need the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the Cross to have your sins forgiven and get in right-standing with God? We plead with you...please don't make such a tragic mistake.
To get to know God, to be at peace with God, to have your sins forgiven, to make certain heaven will be your home for eternity, to make certain that you are in right-standing with God right now ... please click here to help you understand the importance of being reconciled to God. What you do about being reconciled to God will determine where you will spend eternity, precious one. Your decision to be reconciled to God is the most important decision you'll ever make in this life, because in Christ, it is impossible to put a value on the worth of your soul in light of eternity.

Remember: All that we do in this life comes back to our God-given purpose which is to serve and glorify God. The money and assets we accumulate, the fame and power we've attained or seek to attain - all of the things of this nature will one day pass away, but those lives of others we impact for Jesus Christ will last for eternity, and we will be rewarded for the part we helped play by impacting those lives ... for eternity. (Matthew 6:19-20 is our assurance)
