The Beauty of ‘Boring’ Testimonies – The Gospel Coalition Blog. I think it is our flesh that doesn’t respond to the “boring” testimonies. We like hearing all the gory details of the ex-murderer’s, ex-drug-dealer’s, ex-Satanist’s past and give very little though to the “Oh, and then I prayed the sinner’s prayer and accepted Jesus as my personal Lord and Savior” at the end.
Never mind, of course, that salvation is entirely God’s doing. He regenerates us. He gives us the faith necessary to believe. He brings us to repentance. He justifies us. He preserves us to the end. Our testimonies are supposed to be about what He did, not about what we did before He did.
