Only You Can Share Your Life Message
By Rick Warren
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.
Here at the beginning of a new year is the perfect time to think about what your life message is and resolve to share it with people around you.
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. When you say, “I was praying about this, and here’s what happened,” you’ve given a life message. If 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. If you don’t share your life message, the world gets cheated.
God wants to use you specifically. Why? Because the best messages are personal messages. The most powerful messages come through people.
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 today. Instead of writing it in the sky, 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. You can say, “I don’t have it all together, but here’s what God’s 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.
What is the message of your life?
