The Question You Need to Start Asking



One of my best friends, Piper, is one of my favorite people in the entire world. She loves Jesus with all her heart, is so much fun to be around, and cares about people before herself. She encourages me and challenges me according to God's Word, and I love her for that.


We met during summer cross country training. From day one, we ran together, and it quickly became the highlight of my day. We laughed while we ran and shared stories that began to reveal who we are and what we cherished. We even talked about what we were reading in the Bible that day.


Then one day, as we were finishing up a fartlek, Piper asked me a question I didn't anticipate, but from that day forward, our relationship deepened so much.


She asked me what my testimony was.


I knew what to say, and the question didn't scare me, but it amazed me because no one had ever asked me that before.


Since then, we aren't just normal friends. I think that we strive to hold each other to a higher standard of living according to the Bible and try to be a light to the people we're surrounded by. We have so much fun together, whether it's working out or going to youth group together.


And I believe that we are the type of friends we are today because of that simple question Piper asked.


"What's your testimony?"


This simple question has the ability to completely transform your relationships and the way you do life with people. It will help you deepen the friendships you already have and cultivate new relationships. This question opens doors of intimacy and vulnerability, which we all crave in a world so dominated by social media and busyness. So ask them! Get to know your people (and maybe even meet some new people!) by getting beyond a bit of awkwardness and inviting deeper connection into your life.


 

“I will praise you to all my brothers; I will stand up before the congregation and testify of the wonderful things you have done.” - Psalms 22:22


“Come and listen, all you who fear God, and I will tell you what he did for me.” - Psalms 66:16


“And let us continue to consider how to motivate one another to love and good deeds, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another even more as you see the day of the Lord coming nearer.” - Hebrews 10:24-25
