Our Testimony Is LIFE, Not Behavior



LIFE, Baby Foot, by Mike Bitzenhofer


And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. Revelation 12:11

"The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly. John 10:10



How many times have I heard someone say, in one form or another: "I used be an Alcoholic, and I drank like a fish, and did drugs. But now I found Jesus, and I don't do those things anymore."

Let's examine that testimony. If you found Jesus and you don't DO those thing anymore, and then you "fall into sin" and start doing them again. What does that mean to your testimony?

Does that mean you lost Jesus? Does that mean He wasn't strong enough? Does that mean you never really had Him? Does that mean that there is no Jesus?

What if... Jesus didn't come to save your behavior?

Yes, it's obvious that behavior changes can and should accompany a relationship with Jesus. But are those behaviors "why" He came?

Jesus came to set right the things that Adam set wrong. He is the Second Adam, a LIFE giving spirit.

Adam the First disconnected from the Tree of LIFE, and connected to the Tree of Knowledge. With no LIFE, he was disconnected from the flow of LIFE (which contained knowledge and information) to his spirit. He was forced to go through the earth only having his physical senses and ability to reason. These, being limited at best, eventually produced sin, and then death.

Jesus came to re-connect us to LIFE (the Holy Spirit is our connection). That connection causes us to be in right standing with God. Our spirit cries "DADDY" in the Father's presence.

When we fall, and fail, this does not change our testimony one bit. Because our testimony isn't about our behavior. Our testimony is that we were Dead, serving dead religion, dead knowledge. We accepted Jesus and got connected to LIFE. We have relationship with God OUR Daddy!

Just as my son is still my son, and I love him, regardless of his actions.... I am God's son, regardless of my actions. And when (not if but when) I fail, He will come beside me, teach me, love me through that failure, and help me walk out of it stronger.

Hello. My name is Darrell. I was the son of an Atheist Pastor, and I was serving dead religion, always trying to be good enough for God. Then I accepted Jesus' LIFE, and now I am His Son. I am right before God not because of what I've done, but who I am. I am His adopted son. 

That testimony, doesn't change with your failure.

The W Story Structure - 4 Sequence Story Structure

Out of everything I've ever read on story structure for fiction writing, the W-Story Structure makes the most sense to me. If you'd rather view these as Acts (3-Act or 4-Act) you can overlay that on this W and it still works.



Glen C. Strathy writes (in much more detail here) in his article, The W-Plot vs. The Dramatica Model of Story Structure. There are four sequences for most stories. Each of the four legs of the W is comprised of a sequence of events that lead the story along to it's natural conclusion.

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)Sequence 2: recovering from the problem (new ideas, positive momentum)Sequence 3: deepening of the problemSequence 4: the resolution of the problem (new light or understanding)

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)
The Inciting Event (the event that is at the heart of the reason this story happened) may have occurred before your story begins, and often does. In King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017), th…

Introduction In the beginning, the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God. (Immerse, 2017) John, page 399 
Notice that John begins his gospel by calling Jesus, The Word. We find Words, and the stories they create for us, impact us at a level that is beyond our cognitive ability to understand in the moment. Being caught up in a story can make you lose all sense of present, and be transported to another time and place (and sometimes another world entirely).

Ever since Aristotle observed that stories had a beginning, a middle, and an end, the science of story has been developed and studied. Our modern sensibilities tell us at a gut level whether a story “works” or i…

Reflection Paper: Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis

Reflections of Mere Christianity
This is a reflection paper of the text Mere Christianity (Lewis, 1952, 1980). The content was first delivered as radio broadcast material between 1942-1944 by Clive Staples “CS” Lewis. Lewis then gathered the materials and published them as three sperate works, later combining and editing the text that became Mere Christianity. With the mind of a scholar and the mouth of a layman, Lewis takes us through the various topics that affect our lives as Christians and provides practical break-downs of how we are to treat each topic, supplemented by a host of modern parallels and parables. He is careful not to take any position that is not laid solidly in the Word of God, leaving those positions that are controversial within the Church either without an opinion or a well-deserved analysis of each side. However, far from a dry treatment of theology, Lewis gives us a laugh through each turn as he cuts through the heady stuff for the “why behind” each discussion…
