Your life is brimming with captivating characters: Some are rescuers; others are mentors and heroes. A few may be treacherous spiritual adversaries and unwitting betrayers. None have minor roles in your life, because each protagonist and antagonist holds a purpose that touches the epilogue of your destiny.
So, have you told your story?
The Holy Spirit through the Apostle Peter encourages believers to:
“… always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have…” (I Peter 3:15)
If we define a Reason as the rationale for what we believe…
If we define Hope as our expectation of God’s intervention…
then the rationale for what we believe and our expectation of God’s intervention is our reason for hope.
When rote apologetics fail to awaken skeptics to their need for Jesus, your story can spark Truth, like flint striking steel. No one can refute your life narrative. Only you have lived it!
Every miracle is evidence. Overcoming impossible obstacles is evidence. Weathering health storms is evidence. Remaining faithful through upheavals is evidence. Your radically distinctive story is a bold affidavit.
An untold story is a waste. Speak it. Write it. Say it in your own words.
Launch your life story into the real world. It wears a unique face that hearers can never forget. Yours is the story of a lifetime!
