Outflow - Our Testimony Unto Death

OUTFLOW out-flow (out-flo) n. 1. the act of flowing out. 2.that which flows out. 3. any outward movement.

Revelation 12:11 says that: "We overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony." The first was the outflow of Jesus for the atonement of our sins. The second is an outflow from our hearts in response to the first. We each have a testimony that God wants us to share with those who are in need of His forgiveness, grace, mercy and compassion. However, while doing so, just as Jesus did in order to bring us the testimony of His Kingdom, we are also to "love not our own lives unto death".
