Ministering Life by Testifying

Mark 6:7 And He called the twelve to Him and began to send them out two by two and gave them authority over the unclean spirits; 13 And they cast out many demons and anointed many of the sick with oil and healed them. 1John 1:2 (And the life was manifested, and we have seen and testify and report to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and was manifested to us); 3 That which we have seen and heard we report also to you that you also may have fellowship with us, and indeed our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ.

Now we need to go on to see that to minister life to others is equal to anointing the sick with oil and healing them. Many of our fellow Christians are spiritually sick because of the lack of nourishment. How can we nourish them? The best way to nourish them is to give them a testimony of our experience of Christ. A genuine testimony of our spiritual experience will be the best food. Our testifying to others is also our anointing of them. The need is for us to testify of our experience of Christ. You may testify how you have been saved and captured by the Lord, how the Lord satisfies you, and how you experience and enjoy Him day by day. Through this kind of testimony others will receive a rich anointing. Through this anointing they will be nourished and healed in a spiritual way. Therefore, to minister life to others is to nourish them and anoint them with our testimony. We all need more experience of the enjoyment of the Lord. Then we need to testify to others of our enjoyment. To many Christians, the thought of enjoying the Lord may sound strange. Many have never heard that it is possible for the Lord to be enjoyed by us. They may say, "What do you mean that you enjoy the Lord? God is great and mighty. How can we presume to enjoy Him?" Instead of arguing about this, simply give others a testimony of how the Triune God has become your daily enjoyment. Such a testimony will anoint them, nourish them, and feed them.
