Simple Testimony

John 9:24-34

February 8, 2015

In today's qt, the blind man is brought before the Pharisees again, and they're pursuing their own interest as usual. Now, what stood out to me in today's qt was how simple the man's testimony was. He said "One thing I know. I was blind but now I see!"

I've been struggling to put together my tool of gospel, my testimony, since about a month ago. I have hard time organizing it in because it's a bit of a long story. I wonder however if there is a one sentence version of my testimony. Perhaps, instead of starting from the whole, and simplifying it down, I can start from the simplest form, and add to it.

I've also been struggling with several mobile app design decisions for my business. I've had a small group of friends help me refine it last semester, and they helped me nail down the very important decisions. Over the winter break, I started designing the app, and I got stuck on several more decision points. I couldn't figure it out until yesterday. Yesterday after bible study, and after a delicious sushi dinner, I thought maybe I should pray about these questions. At first, it was a little weird to think that I'd pray and ask Jesus what I should do, but then again, I do what I do for him, so maybe I should have been asking more. So, last night, I prayed, and it came to me. And the design, its beauty, like this blind man's testimony, was in its simplicity. It is simple, and it works. Now, I feel so relieved to have had these problems solved. Today, doing this QT, I now see I should pray about my testimony, and ask God to reveal it to me the simplest form of my testimony.

Application: pray at midnight for the simplest form of my testimony, take notes while doing today's bible study
