The Bible records countless times crowds gathered around Jesus, and times when individuals came to learn from him and to be healed by him. How did they know to show up? They didn’t read a post about Jesus that went viral on social media. Jesus didn’t have flyers up in the local coffee shop. They likely showed up because someone they knew shared their story.
We all have a story to tell about our encounters with Jesus. When we tell our stories, we strengthen and encourage those around us. And I believe we strengthen ourselves too.
How has God called you to participate in God’s mission by sharing your faith story?
