It's Wednesday night; let's leap to our feet!

From the January 1989 issue of The Christian Science Journal

"And he leaping up stood, and walked, and entered with them into the temple, walking, and leaping, and praising God." Acts 3:8 So the Bible describes a man, who had been crippled from birth, after Peter and John healed him.

I remember vividly the first time I got to my feet at a Wednesday evening testimony meeting in a branch Church of Christ, Scientist. It wasn't exactly a case of leaping to my feet! In fact, I was a bit shaky, but I did have an earnest desire to praise God for His care for me. And, as I leaned on His intelligence for direction and inspiration, the words did come. Since that time, I've spoken frequently on Wednesday nights, although probably not as often as I could have, considering the many blessings I've received from Christian Science.

Testimonies don't have to be long and of impeccable
grammar. Of course, they should be given in a way
that can be easily understood, but it is substance and
sincerity, not format and length, that count. When the
listeners sense the gratitude, humility, and spiritual
conviction of the speaker, the testimony is inspiring
to them and becomes itself a healing instrument.
