The crux of our faith is centered around a story – a story that tells of a God who is desirous of His people. We live around the story that because God loved us so extravagantly, He sent His only Son to die on a cross for us. It is the greatest story ever told because it didn’t end there. Jesus bore the sins of all of humanity forever on that cross and through Him, we have everlasting life and salvation – and a story to share.
We seek to tell that story every moment in every place. As Christians, we share that story when love our friends, neighbors, and communities. We share that story in churches and Bible studies. We share that story in cramped refugee centers to people desperate for that saving story.
It is so much more than just a few words strung together. Because of the merciful salvation Christ has extended towards each of us, as believers we are each sent out into the world with our own story. Each son and daughter of God has a story to tell about how Christ rescued them from a life apart from God, changed their heart, and set them on a new calling for His glory.
Share your story today. Share it in the smile you give a stranger, in the sharing of the Word, and in the outpouring of your faith.
