Your Jesus StoryThe Story Only You Can Tell
You may not realize it, but you have a story to tell. Yes, YOU.
Yours is a powerful story, an important story, a life-changing world-shaking story. It’s your Jesus Story, and it’s a story that only you can tell.
Your Jesus Story began long long ago before you were even born. God knew you, created you, wove you together and counted your days. He brought you into this world out of your mother’s body to become your own person, and you grew.
As the days and years passed, He began to make Himself known to you just as He has always known you. Then, there came a day that you chose to give your heart and life to Him. You began to walk in a real relationship with the Lord. That is your Jesus story, but it’s only a part of it.
For, every day since then, God has continued to work in your life. Whether you recognized Him and received Him or not, He has been wooing you, drawing you and shaping you. Every nuanced page and intricate chapter in your life’s book has been yet another piece of your Jesus Story.
Your story is filled, most surely, with joy and sorrow, obedience and rebellion, faith and fear, desperation and deliverance. All of these parts and parcels combine for your powerful Jesus Story.
Sometimes we are trained or tempted to think that our Jesus Stories lie solely in our salvation experiences. However, those are only part of our stories along the way. As God and His Word move in and through you, you have countless more Jesus Stories. These stories make all the difference in the world when you share them with others.
So, as you “Seek Him” in your life, be empowered and encouraged to turn around and “Speak Him” into the lives of those entrusted to you. Share your Jesus Stories with them. Tell them about what God is doing in you. Encourage them with the Scripture that has encouraged you. Challenge them with the truths God has shown you. Talk about your God glimpses and answered prayers. These are your Jesus Story.
It makes all the difference in your world. Let is make a difference in other peoples’ lives, too.
Let’s face it – most kids aren’t saying “disciple me!” However, Jesus calls us to go into all the world to make disciples – and this can start with those entrusted to us at home!
