Only You Can Share Your Life Message
By Rick Warren
“Your lives are echoing the Master’s Word . . . The news of your faith in God is out. We don’t even have to say anything anymore—you’re the message!” 1 Thessalonians 1:8 (The Message)
Did you know that God put you on Earth for a special reason? He wants to say something to the rest of the world through you. It’s called your life message.
The Bible says in 1 Thessalonians 1:8, “Your lives are echoing the Master’s Word . . . The news of your faith in God is out. We don’t even have to say anything anymore—you’re the message!” (The Message).
Any time you say, “This is what God’s doing in my life,” you’re giving your life message. Any time you say, “I was praying about this, and here’s what’s happened,” you’ve given a life message. Any time you say, “I’ve got this problem I’m struggling with, but God is helping me,” you are sharing your life message.
Only you can share your unique life message. Nobody else can do it for you. And if you don’t share your life message, the world gets cheated.
God wants to use you. But why?
It’s because the best messages are personal messages. The most powerful message comes through a person. I’m so glad that when God wanted to share his message of love, he didn’t email it. He came in person. The Word became flesh. Jesus Christ came to Earth so we could see what God is like.
God has a message to share with the world, and instead of writing it in the sky, he wants to share it through your personality; he wants to share it through you.
You don’t have to be perfect to share your life message. You just have to be honest, real, and authentic. Just say, “I don’t have it all together, but here’s what God is doing in my life. Here’s the difference Jesus Christ has made.”
If you don’t share your life message with other people, they may never hear about what God can do for them too.
Your life message is yours alone. No one else can share it. So what will be the communication of your life?
