Friday Experiences, Testimonies and Fluorescent Lights



Tonight, during the High School breakout of TRGYC's January Experience, we heard the live, awesome testimony of a Turkish Muslim who converted to Christianity nearly four years ago. Aydin Coskun of Calgary, Alberta Canada shared the saga of his seven year quest spanning 21 nations in search for truth, self-identity, and peace of mind. He relived for us the coffee-shop Bible study experience where the revelation of the mighty God in Christ was illuminated for him, 'like a giant fluorescent light.' If revelation is the art of the Spirit, than we know it wasn't fluorescent or incandescent light really, but rather it was the natural, transparent light of Truth from above - an experience that cannot be extinguished, and light that cannot be quenched.

Brother Aydin, thanks for sharing your testimony and letting your light shine to a room full of High School students and teenagers. Friends like you and Sam Hassas are modern-day, living epistles and a reminder to us that light can only be successful when it is allowed to confront the darkness beyond the insulation of a bushel.

Each one of us have our own 'historic' and unique introduction to Truth - our own experience, our own testimony, our own light. Don't make light of it, make a light out of it and allow your personal experience to penetrate the darkness around you. The world is suffering because of too many closet Christians - or should I say Sunday Christians.

This little light of mine, I'm going to let it shine, let it shine, let it shine...
