As Larry Guthrie illustrates, effectiveness comes at a very high cost—a personal cost. To make a point for someone else requires the accuracy, simplicity and practical application that grow out of my own real relationship with the Savior. Would I be willing even to go through what Job went through if that is what it takes to bring Him glory in my life? Am I broken? Is my testimony tested and proven, tried and true? Do I look in the mirror first for examples of brokenness, emptiness and commitment? Ultimately, am I willing to be poured out? To become a candle for God’s bright light to consume in its entirety? When given the opportunity, am I ready to relate my testimony to others in ways that are going to be remembered … or not? Only as I first confront myself with these reality check questions will they be able to hear from God themselves as they listen to what I say.
