“Let the redeemed of the LORD say so.” – Psalm 107:2
One of my greatest joys is when I have the opportunity to “say so.” This year is my 56th year since I trusted Jesus as my Savior. No one needed to tell me that I should tell others about my experience of having my sin debt removed by the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ! I did not need a class on soul-winning as I simply shared my testimony to others. All I needed was someone unsaved to listen as I told them what Jesus did for me and what He will also do for you. It has been my extreme honor and thrilling privilege to introduce folks to my Savior whom I have gladly served since my salvation. Just last night, I stood before a group of about 30 women in a county prison. I told them of the hope and joy I found when I was saved. I shared a very precious verse from the last chapter of the last book in our Bible. “And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely” (Rev. 22:17). I would love to tell you that all 30 women received Christ, but that did not happen. However, I left that prison thrilled that I, as the redeemed, had the opportunity to “say so” in the presence of so many people who had never heard that message before. As SWM missionaries, we are blessed beyond words to stand and Sign to people who cannot hear, that there is a Savior Who gave His life for them! Psalm 107 tells us that this is not exclusively the responsibility of the missionary, but of all who are redeemed. I am thrilled when I see people respond to the Gospel, but I am equally thrilled that I am counted worthy to carry such an invaluable message to those who need it most. I continue to pray for the salvation of those I present the message to regularly, but their salvation is out of my control. My responsibility remains to “say so.” By God’s grace, I want to “say so” unto my last breath.
