look what God did

How do you let others know what God has done in your life?  First, you have to remember.  Second, you have to talk about it.  Third, then others will hear.  Case in point:

Joshua 4:1-7 (GWT) --- The whole nation finished crossing the Jordan River. The Lord had told Joshua, 2 "Choose one man from each of the 12 tribes. 3 Order them to pick up 12 stones from the middle of the Jordan, where the priests' feet stood firmly. Take the stones along with you, and set them down where you will camp tonight."4 Joshua called the 12 men whom he had selected (one from each tribe). 5 He said to them, "Go to the middle of the Jordan River in front of the ark of the Lord your God. Each man must take a stone on his shoulder, one for each tribe of Israel. 6 This will be a sign for you. In the future your children will ask, 'What do these stones mean to you?'7 You should answer, 'The water of the Jordan River was cut off in front of the ark of the Lord's promise. When the ark crossed the Jordan, the river stopped flowing. These stones are a permanent reminder for the people of Israel.' "

The reason to share is so that people will know and respond to god.  What we have seen and heard and experienced will changed lives of people we meet.  By sharing god will use us to change other lives.  When people see God, they will be drawn to Him and changed by Him.

Notice in the passage above that God has done something huge.  He stopped the Jordan River from flowing and made dry ground for His people to walk on.  this is something that people don't need to forget.  Why?  this is so people will know that God's promises come true and that He takes care of His children.

God wants to use your story to let others see Him.  When we share, we are not bragging but pointing people to Jesus.  When we talk about what God has done, we point people to Jesus.  That is what God has called us to do.

Let's point people to Jesus.  Join me!

John 12:32 (NLT) --- And when I am lifted up from the earth, I will draw everyone to myself.
