My church, Fellowship Bible Church, is gearing up for a Baptism Celebration in a few weeks. As a part of that process, I get to spend some time with each child who is participating in the baptism to do some counseling and coaching. I absolutely LOVE this part of my job. It is such a thrill to see the Gospel changing lives.
One of the best parts of these meetings is when I get to sit back and hear kids tell their story. I ask them to share the story of how God called them and led them to accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. There are times when the kids clam up and parents have to help tell the story, but most often the kid lights up and launches into his/her testimony. It’s amazing to hear their story and see how God places certain people or events in their path to lead them to salvation.This week I heard a 12-yr old who was led to Christ through a Gospel tract given to him on Halloween, a 7-yr old who accepted Jesus on a family mission trip to Mexico, and an 8-yr old who had accepted Christ 2 years ago and with tears in his eyes told me that he wanted to go tell the world!
I love hearing their stories. I love hearing how God changes lives. And so I had an idea to get everyone to share their story. How did God call you to accept Jesus Christ as your Savior? Share your story with the world! Use the hashtag #mystory and leave a comment below, post it to Facebook, or comment on Twitter. Send this to friends and family and get them to do the same.
It would be awesome for the testimonies of believers to be trending on Twitter!
