How did you come to know about Christ's love for you? You may have heard someone's life changing story and it changed your life for eternity. Did what you go through increase your faith? It will probably increase someone else's just by reading about it.
Your story is God's mark in your life and how His hand of healing touches and brings wholeness.
How can we not share our story?
In John 5:33 & 35, God's Word says "You have sent to John and he has testified to the truth . . . John was a lamp that burned and gave light and you chose for a time to enjoy his light" John was sent to testify to the truth and he was a lamp pointing to Jesus. Like John, all believers are called to shine our light to declare Him.
The Word is full of stories from our forefathers! Where would we be without them? These true stories are clear-cut testaments of Christians who reach beyond their own strength and trusted God's divine grace. Your Christian walk is more than just about your own personal spiritual growth, it is also about sharing with others the good news of God's redemptive work in your life!
Isaiah 61:1, "The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners . . . "
