822 How to Testify to God to Reap Practical Results

Chorus

When you bear testimony for God,

these are the things you should mainly speak of:

how God judges and chastises people,

what trials He uses to refine them,

bring about change to their dispositions.

You should also say how much corruption

has been revealed in your experience,

how much you have endured along the way,

and how you were finally conquered by God.

Share all the knowledge of God’s work you have,

and show how you should bear witness for God

to repay Him for the love that He gives.

Verse 1

When you bear testimony for God,

you should do so in practical terms,

express yourself in a simple manner;

resist the temptation to show off

with profound-seeming, empty theories,

making you seem arrogant and senseless.

Pre-chorus 1

You should speak more of things from your real experience,

things that are genuine and from the heart.

This will be of most benefit for other people,

most appropriate for them to see.

how much you have endured along the way,

and how you were finally conquered by God.

Share all the knowledge of God’s work you have,

and show how you should bear witness for God

to repay Him for the love that He gives.

Verse 2

You would do well never to forget this:

You were the people who opposed God the most.

You were the least inclined to submit to Him.

Truly, that is who you used to be,

only you have now been conquered by God’s words.

You would do well never to forget that.

Pre-chorus 2

You should think on this more, or you’ll be liable to

commit shameful and senseless acts.

and show how you should bear witness for God

to repay Him for the love that He gives.
