God has given you a life message to share.
The moment you became a believer you also became a messenger. God wants to speak to the world through you. You may feel like you don’t have anything to share but that’s a lie. You have a whole life to share!
Your life message has four parts:
- Your testimony – the story of how you began a relationship with Jesus.
- Your life lessons – the most important lessons God has taught you.
- Your Godly passions – the issues God shaped you to care most about.
- The Good News – the message of salvation by grace through faith in Jesus.
Your testimony is the real and authentic story of coming to the point of belief in Jesus. It’s sharing of the reality of Christ. Being a witness is simply sharing your personal experience. It’s not about arguing, defending, proving, it’s just about telling of what has actually happened. Your testimony is vital because it’s unique. Personal stories are always powerful. A testimony is not about its intellectual status, it’s about your reality.
Life lessons make up your life message. What are the insights and lessons you’ve learnt about and from God through your experiences? Share them. We learn from going though certain things but also from what other people have gone through. You can help someone from what you’ve learnt.
God is passionate. The closer we get to him the more we will take on his passions. He wants us to share what now impassions us because of our relationship with him. Perhaps you have a passion for a cause or a passion for a people group. This passion can impact the world. God uses passionate people to extend the Kingdom of God.
Your life message includes the Good News. This news is the salvation of humanity through the work of Jesus and our belief in him. Every person matters to God. We are not to live just saved but also called. Called and commissioned by God himself to share the Good News.
Remember – God wants to say something to the world through me.
Key Bible verse – “Be ready to speak up and tell anyone who asks why you’re living the way you are, and always with the utmost courtesy.” 1 Peter 3:15 MSG
Pray – Father, give me boldness and confidence to speak, to share my life message and to see your salvation in those I love.
