My husband shared his testimony on Good Friday.
Not the one that begins with, “I was raised in a Christian home.” Even if that were true for him, that’s not where he started. Instead he shared about what God is doing in his life right now. Currently. Today.
Tears were streaming down my face as I held our daughter on my lap and simultaneously tried to silence our son while listening in rapt attention. This man, whom when we were married, was not following God (actually neither of us were) was sharing about a God who is alive and active in his life – TODAY.
I was challenged by what he shared and so very proud of him. I was blown away by the depth of his relationship with God.
The question that was posed to him when asked if he would consider sharing, was one we should all consider: What is God doing in your life right now?
Not three years ago. Not that unforgettable mountaintop moment when God showed up in an unmistakable way – twelve months ago. But today. Right now.
You see, a relationship with the Father is alive. It continues to evolve day after day. We all should be able to answer that question with ways God is currently revealing Himself to us, or how He is teaching us, or convicting us, or demonstrating His love to us.
God is Creator and is fully capable of creating new experiences and new depths of relationship with each one of His children. Our relationship with Him is not meant to grow stagnant. It is dynamic and ever-deepening.
How do we know the message of Easter is true? How can we be sure He’s alive? Because He’s alive in us. His fingerprints are all over our lives.
How would you respond to that question? What is God doing in your life today?
