I’ve been greatly inspired these last several months, weeks, and days. My family and I found a new worship home this year, rather found our way back to our worship home. It’s been an eye opening experience to be able to worship God every week with so many believers. So many people who have their own story as we all do. So many people who have had their share of pain, struggle, and brokenness, as well as joy and happiness. This morning on my way to the office I was listening to the radio and hearing discussion about an article that referenced the fact that throughout the Bible, New and Old Testament, God used people that were broken to advance his Kingdom and Glory. Only Jesus pleased the Father and did not fall short of His Glory.
With the release of God’s Not Dead this past weekend, I started thinking more how God uses so many different people in so many ways to help advance His Kingdom and share the Good News of Jesus Christ. I’ve been connecting with more and more people these past few days on social media, particularly Twitter that are involved in ministry, involved in the movie, and people that are connecting with God’s message. I realized that we’re all people and we’re all broken. God is using each and every one of us in a unique way for His Glory. While we may have different assignments and paths, we all have the purpose of being Ambassadors for Christ (2 Corinthians 5:20).
Each and every one of us now and throughout history has a unique story that has brought us through trials and struggles. My pastor challenged each of to write out our testimony and share that with everyone. Our story of life through struggle and brokenness and to redemption. Our personal testimonies are a huge way to bring others in and show just how God is working in our lives and how faith in Christ transformed. A few years ago, He transformed me big time. I was lost spiritually for way too long. I am writing out my story and you will all see it very soon. I pray that it finds its way to many more as I show what God has done in my life.
We can all do the same. If your faith has transformed you, share it with others. Open up about your own brokenness and how Christ redeemed you. We can all do this. We all have a story, we all are just people, and we’ve all been broken to some degree. Pray and figure out where God wants you to work for His Kingdom and use your story to bring others to the Kingdom. It’s a huge battle that we all as a body must take part in and are purposed to do.
