I’ve been a Christian now for over fifty years, and I’ve met many Christians over that time. I’ve heard many testimonies of faith, but I’ve noticed a common feeling expressed by most of those people: they think they have a ‘boring’ testimony.

I want to assure you today that there is no such thing as a boring testimony! When God raises someone from the dead, it is always staggering.

I think I  know what people mean when they say ‘boring.’ They are referring to the fact that they’ve never done drugs, didn’t sleep around, didn’t have an alcohol problem, didn’t come to the end of themselves, and were born into a Christian family where God saved them at a young age. If this is the case, the testimony may not be as dramatic as some, but it certainly isn’t boring.

Our testimony is what our life was like before we embraced the gospel of God’s amazing grace, and how our life is now different because of Jesus. The remedy to removing the word ‘boring’ from our understanding of our testimony is a proper understanding of what our life was really like before we got saved. The Apostle Paul told us in his letter to the Ephesians?

Ephesians 2:1-3  “As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient. All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our flesh and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature deserving of wrath.”

According to Paul, before you met Jesus, you were:

Dead in your sins
Following Satan
A child of wrath

Then God saves you and makes you a Christian where you become adopted, forgiven, loved, sharing in Christ’s inheritance, and are now seated with Him in the heavenly places. You went from the Kingdom of darkness to the Kingdom of light. Nothing ‘boring’ about that story!!

We can have testimonies that are more or less dramatic, but never one that is boring. When God raises someone from the dead, it is always staggering.
