Your Story Must Be Told

Tell your story.  Don't allow the story of God, the sacred, transforming story of what God does in a human heart to become flat and lifeless...if we allow the gospel to be told only on Sundays, only in sanctuaries...that life-changing story will lose its ability to change lives.  

When Christ walked among us, he entrusted the gospel to plain old regular people who were not religious professionals.  If you have been transformed by the grace of God, then you have within you all you need to write your manifesto, your poem, your song, your battle cry, your love letter to a beautiful and broken world.  

Your story must be told.--- Shuana Niequist
