Your Conversion Doesn’t Have To Be Dramatic

Every Christian has a testimony. Our testimony is the story of how we were converted… how we became a Christian. Everyone’s conversion story is different. Some of them are pretty routine while others are dramatic. If your testimony is not dramatic, you can hear a dramatic testimony and you can begin to doubt if your testimony is legit because your testimony is not dramatic.
In Acts 9, we read one of the most dramatic testimonies ever. It was the testimony of Saul of Tarsus.
Saul had been persecuting Christians. He was going to Damascus to persecute Christians when suddenly, a great light burst out of the heavens. It was so bright, it knocked him off his mount. Lying on the ground, Saul heard the voice of the Lord who said, “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me?”
Saul replied, “Is it thou, Lord?”
God told Saul to go to Damascus where he remained for three days before God sent a man named Ananias to find Paul. When he did, he told Saul God’s mission for him was to be a missionary to the Gentiles.
Saul’s conversion was dramatic but every conversion story is different. It may be that you have questioned your salvation because your story isn’t dramatic. I understand. I’ve done the same. But every story is different.
I was raised in a Christian home. I didn’t drink or do drugs… I was living a pretty routine life. But I reached a point where I knew I needed to accept Christ and I did. It wasn’t a dramatic thing for me. Maybe your story is similar to mine.
Today, if there was a time when you received Christ, rejoice in that. Thank the Lord for His sacrificial gift on the cross of Calvary! Your story doesn’t have to be dramatic to prove you are saved.
