The Eccentric Sheep Musings: The Myths That Hold Us Back, Part One
Last month I challenged you to get up and get out of your comfort zone for God. Today I want to talk about one of the myths we tell ourselves that hold us back from getting up. “I don’t have anything to offer God.”
Yes, it is a myth. It is a lie. Let me repeat myself…IT IS A LIE. I’ve said it too so don’t feel bad if you’ve said it too.
First of all, the very heart and soul you offer to God when you accept Jesus Christ as your savior are the most priceless and precious things on earth! You have everything to offer! The very things God wants more than anything in the universe are things you have to give. God could create infinite planets of pleasures and riches for eternity, but you are what he wants.
And you hold one of the most powerful tools for telling people about Christ. Right now in your hands you have a way of spreading the gospel and all God has done for you, and you don’t even have to directly quote memorized bible verses to use it.
What is this tool? It’s your story.
You are a unique person. There will never be another one like you. You have a unique story. No one will ever tell a life story and testimony to God like yours. Everything you’ve been through and everything you’ve seen and felt and experienced in their incredibly crafted combinations that tell a tale of perseverance and faith….it will never be seen on this earth again after you are gone.
You don’t have to be a talent speaker or writer with an arena of people at your fingertips to tell your story. You don’t have to be an extroverted, charismatic and popular person to get your story out to people. You don’t have to have money and wealth to do it either.
Yet, your story alone could change hearts and save souls.
No one else has your story. Only you can tell it. Someone out there is waiting to hear it. Someone out there needs it. If you don’t tell your story, no one will.
So don’t believe the bull that you have nothing to offer God. You have everything to offer God! You have things to offer God that money can’t buy. You have things to offer God that people can’t just find and claim as their own. It’s all yours.
Now that you’ve taken hold of your story, which is uniquely hand crafted over many years and wonderfully made and meant to be shared to encourage and help others and save souls…..are you ready to get up yet?
