In this final part of our series on the Power of Testimony, Cherie Snyder sits down with Stasi to share the journey of her faith. For many years, Cherie wrestled with a deep feeling that something was inherently wrong with her, that it was up to her to earn her worth, and that God's love was one of obligation. Yet just as our God pursues each one of us uniquely and personally, Cherie tells how He wooed her in order to reveal His true heart and capture hers for Himself.
John 4:5-30 (NIV) — The story of Jesus talking with a Samaritan women at the well
2 Corinthians 4:4 (NIV) — The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.
Philippians 2:5-11 (NIV) — In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death—even death on a cross! Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Philippians 2:1-2 (NIV) — Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind.
