The Power of Stories

One of the best parts of my job is talking to people who are new to faith.  Over and over again, the same thing that people say moved them closer to Jesus was when someone shared their story with them. That could be sharing a faith story during a Sunday morning gathering, or it could be shared over a cup of coffee between two friends.

You don’t have to be a trained professional to tell you story.  You don’t have to be a Bible Scholar.  You have to simply trust that God is up to something good, and everytime you share your story you get to be a part of his redemptive work in the world.

I just spoke with two people who felt God talking directly through them on Sunday through somebody sharing their faith story.  This person was nervous, but they trusted that God was going to do something.  And God did.  God is up to something good, and we get to be a part of it.  And the easiest way to participate in God’s work is by sharing the story of how he has changed our lives.

So . . .

Do you know your story?

Who are you sharing your story with?

Creekside we have a couple of powerful stories that will be shared over the next few week.  Check us out at thecreeksidechurch.org
