TELL THE STORY

 TELL THE STORY

"Our impulse to tell the salvation story arises from listening to the heartbeat of the risen Jesus within us. Telling the story does not require that we become ordained ministers or flamboyant street corner preachers, nor does it demand that we try to convert people by concussion with one sledgehammer blow of the Bible after another. It simply means we share with others what our lives used to be like, what happened when we met Jesus, and what our lives are like now.

The true self is not cowed into timidity. Buoyed up and carried on by a power greater than one's own, the true self finds basic security in the awareness of the present risenness of Jesus Christ. Jesus, rather than self, is always the indispensable core of ministry. The moment we acknowledge that we are powerless, we enter into the liberating sphere of the risen One and we are freed from anxiety over the outcome."

We tell the story of Jesus because it is what we are made to do.
We tell the story ... because He tells us to.
You are the "poster child" of redemption;
Let Him use you.
