No dispute, No debate – Just truth. Your truth, your story. Consider the words to a song in the musical TELL IT LIKE IT IS, a youth musical, written by Ralph Carmichael and Kurt Kaiser, in the late sixties (and yes, as a matter of fact, I was a youth at that time and sang this musical.)
I BELIEVE GOD IS REAL
If I were to tell you what someone told me,
Well, I might miss a detail or two.
For when you describe something you didn’t see,
Then you’re never quite sure that it’s true.
But what we have seen with the eyes of our soul
And with fingers of faith we can feel,
Well, you just have to listen and know that it’s true.
There’s no doubt we believe God is real.
When you share with someone what God means to you, they can’t dispute it, argue with it, or debate it, because it’s your story. We don’t have to be theologians, know all the scriptures, or have the answers to the big questions. We are only responsible for what He means to us. Whew! Isn’t that a relief?
Sometimes I think we are timid about sharing Christ because we aren’t a Pastor, or maybe we feel inadequate, but alas, all we have to do is tell our story. As a believer we have a story of what Christ has done for us. We each have a story of His provision, His peace, His strength. Sharing what Christ has done for us, how He has touched our life, that is our truth.
I am currently doing a Bible study, Stress-Free Believers, by Harold Metzel, and he talks about this very thing. Gives you food for thought. (http://www.stressfreebelievers.com)
So go for it. Tell your story. My story with Jesus started in Abilene, TX, at age 7, at a good ole’ Baptist revival. That’s when I said ‘yes’ to Jesus. That’s where my journey began. That’s been quite a few years ago, and His peace and joy continues today.
Next time, the rest of the story, or part of it.
QUESTION: Do you have a personal story with Jesus? When did your story begin?
